It's a mint mark. Mint marks usually denote where the coin was minted (eg. "O" for Ottawa), however, the "P" denotes the process by which the coins were made.

Most people don't realize either that the 2 CDN mints make coins for countries worldwide. Some of the finest coins in the world are produced here in Canada. Mark
