The third coin in the series features George V (reigned 1910-1936). He granted Canada its own coat of arms (1921) and declared red and white the official colours of Canada. Grandfather of the current Queen, he was the only king-emperor to visit India, and also initiated the monarchy's annual Christmas broadcasts. This crowned portrait of King George V appeared on Canadian coins from 1911 to 1936.
This series of coin effigies retraces 170 years from Queen Victoria to Queen Elizabeth II. Each design has been approved by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, preserving the tradition that has governed the preparation of all royal effigies for centuries.
