Commemorative issue

Supporting the war effort

Obverse

The portrait in left profile of George VI is surrounded with the inscription "GEORGIVS VI D:G:REX ET IND:IMP:" meaning: George V, by the grace of God, the King and Emperor of India

Lettering:
GEORGIVS VI D:G:REX ET IND:IMP:
HP

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

To help promote the war effort, this new design consists in a central "V", meaning both victory and the face value with the inscription "CENTS" underneath flanked by two maple leaves, on which is superimposed a torch, with on both sides a part of the year and above the inscription "CANADA". Around the rim is the Morse code message "We win when we work willingly".
