The Canadians tend not to call their coins nickels, dimes and quarters as the Americans do.  Here is a nice 1902 25 cent coin of Edward VII.  The 1902 coins come with and without the H mintmark; this is the scarcer Royal Mint version without the H and a mintage of just 464,000


Really nice coin, Tony. The high point is the band of the crown, where there's only very slight wear in the centre, but I think there's a second point of wear on the beard and moustache. The coins of Edward VII are very difficult to get in good grade, though, especially since the facial hair wore off quickly.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

  All of the Canadian King Edward VII silver coins are very difficult to find in good order,especially the 25c. & 50c. coins.

That's a very nice 25c. coin that you have got there.
