Accession of Newfoundland to Canada

Obverse

The portrait in left profile of George VI is surrounded with the inscription "GEORGIVS VI DEI GRATIA REX" (George VI, King by the grace of God)

Lettering: GEORGIVS VI DEI GRATIA REX

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

The Matthew, the ship historians believe John Cabot was sailing when he discovered Newfoundland, below which reads the Latin inscription "FLOREAT TERRA NOVA" (may the New Found Land flourish), is surrounded with the facial value and the inscription "CANADA"
