¥ In Canada there is no such thing as Penny, Nickel, Dime, Quarter and Half-Dollar, these are simply common (nick) names of the coins which we have picked up from our American cousins. The true names of the denominations are One Cent-Piece, Five Cent-Piece, Ten Cent-Piece, Twenty-Five Cent-Piece, and Fifty Cent-Piece. In this page however, I used the nicknames of the coins because those are the everyday terms used for our coins.

You may notice on the next pages, next to the names of designers of the reverse side of the coins their initials in parentheses, example Cosme Saffioti (CS). These one, two or three letters appear somewhere on the reverse side of the coin. On the obverse side, the designer of the bust of the monarch appear on the bottom on the bust of the monarch. Usually these on the obverse side are so small they are very difficult to see, especially on circulation coins as they are usually worn down from handling and sometimes completely worn away. The two above coins are examples of the initials that are found. The coin on the left, TS stands for Thomas Shingles and the coin on the right, SB stands for Susanna Blunt.
