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.

Comments

The Canadian Mint needed new dies for its pennies in 1948 due to the independence of India from Great Britain (it was necessary to remove the "ET IND: IMP"). But these dies would not arrive early enough for the demand. So the Mint added little maple leaves beside the '7' of 1947, to signify the year 1948.
Thanks to this, the 1947 coin saw 3 different variants:
1) Blunt '7'
2) Maple leaf (ML) Blunt '7'
3) ML Pointed '7'

To determine if the seven is pointed or blunt, look at the top right section of that number.



Two different alloys were used during the different years of minting this coin:
Alloy 1: from 1937-1942; .955 copper, .030 tin, .015 zinc
Alloy 2: from 1943-1952; .980 copper, .005 tin, .015 zinc
