2005 - Elizabeth II - Ve-Day 60th Victory Nickel

The Canadian five-cent coin, commonly called a nickel, is a coin worth five cents or one-twentieth of a Canadian dollar. It was patterned on the corresponding coin in the neighbouring United States. Starting 4 February 2013, after the elimination of the penny, it became the smallest valued coin in the currency.


Design of the Canadian Victory Nickel

The original Victory nickel design was by Mint Master Engraver Thomas Shingles.

The V symbol on the Victory nickel has a double meaning. It serves as both a representation of Winston Churchill's V for Victory sign and of the Roman numeral V for five cents. The flaming torch in the centre of the design represents sacrifice.

The original World War II Victory nickel had 12 flat edges so it could be differentiated from a penny when it tarnished. It also included the Morse code for "We Win When We Work Willingly" along the outer edge of the coin. The new Victory nickel has a plain round edge.


2005 Victory Anniversary Nickel

The 2005 Victory Anniversary Nickel honours the 60th anniversary of the end of WWII. This special circulation coin is a representation of the 5-cent coin created in 1943 to promote the Canadian war effort.
