It's a commemorative nickel and the date should be 1751-1951. Please see the question "What is the value of a 1751-1951 Canadian nickel" for more information.If you think about history, 1751 can't be the minting date. Canada didn't exist as a separate country in 1751, and the inscription "Georgivs VI" refers to King George the Sixth, who reigned in the mid-20th century.
That nickel is the "Isolation of Nickel Bicentennial" issue. Average, used quality about 20 cents. In mint condition it's worth about $2
It is celebrating the isolation of nickel by Axel Fredrik Cronstedt in 1751.

The last buffalo nickels were made in 1938.
The intrinsic value of a 1951 Canadian silver dollar would be limited to the value of the silver it contains on the day of sale. However, a 1951 dollar in MS or fine condition can be worth as much as 500 dollars to a collector.
1951 is a common date. In average condition most are worth 10 to 30 cents. A 1951 nickel with an S mint mark next to Monticello would retail for about 50¢ if it was only slightly worn.
Please look at the rest of the date. It's 1751-1951 and commemorates the 200th anniversary of the Sudbury nickel mines in Ontario. Circulation-quality Sudbury commemorative nickels were saved by the carload so even today they sell for less than 50 cents. There were also a lot of novelty items made that resemble the actual nickel; these too are only worth a small amount today.
