REIGN OF ELIZABETH II (1952-PRESENT)

HOUSE OF WINDSOR

OBV: ELIZABETH II

REV: IMAGE USED ON THE 1900 SHINPLASTER NOTE - SEATED BRITANNIA WEARING HELMET, TRIDENT IN RIGHT HAND, LEFT HAND RESTING ON SHIELD WITH UNION JACK

THE SHINPLASTER FRACTIONAL NOTES WERE CIRCULATED IN CANADA DURING THE AMERICAN CIVIL WAR WHEN SILVER VALUE DROPPED AND AMERICAN FULL VALUE COINS WERE DISPOSED AT A LOSS

THE FREE EXCHANGE OF CURRENCY BETWEEN THE DOMINION AND THE U.S., ALONG WITH THE GROWING DEVALUATION PROBLEM, CAUSED THE "AMERICAN SILVER NUISANCE" OF 1870

THE INTERIM CURRENCY TO EQUALIZE THE SITUATION WAS A 25-CENT NOTE NAMED AFTER THE CHEAP PAPER IT WAS PRINTED ON SUCH AS THE TYPE COATED WITH STARCH INSIDE THE SOCKS TO WARM THE SHINS OF AMERICAN SOLDIERS DURING THE REVOLUTION, HENCE, "SHINPLASTER"

THE CANADIAN SHINPLASTER WAS "AS GOOD AS GOLD" SINCE IT COULD BE REDEEMED FOR GOLD IN MONTREAL, TORONTO AND ST. JOHN

THE POPULARITY OF THE SHINPLASTER KEPT IT IN CIRCULATION FOR OVER 65 YEARS
