Serving as Canada’s Head of State for 7 decades, Queen Elizabeth II has been commemorated on a new $2 coin.
Just shy of 5 million $2 coins entered circulation in December 2022, giving Canadian collectors a special way of remembering Her Majesty.
When you consider Canada’s population is over 38 million, you’ll appreciate just how sought-after this coin is.
I’ve successfully secured a limited allocation of these unique coins with my supplier in Canada.
However, you’ll need to act fast if you don’t want to miss this chance to add this coin to your collection.
The obverse features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, created by Susanna Blunt and the reverse features the traditional $2 Polar Bear design by Brent Townsend.
But, what makes this $2 coin extra special is the outer ring…
The outer ring features a striking black nickel finish and is reminiscent of a mourning band, in a touching tribute to Her Majesty.
