Engraver: Thomas Humphrey Paget

Thomas Humphrey Paget OBE was an English medal and coin designer and modeller. Paget's designs are indicated by the initials 'HP'. Paget was first approached by the Royal Mint in 1936 after the accession of King Edward VIII. Paget's recommendation had come via his earlier design for the obverse of a medal featuring the then-Prince of Wales.

Reverse

A nickel refinery, above three maple leaves, is accompanied with the legend "NICKEL 1751-1951", the face value and the inscription "CANADA". Canada was then the first world nickel producer.
