Can you find a connection between a polar bear, a moose and a hockey stick?
They’re all Canadian icons of course! And they all feature on this brand new set of Canadian coins.
Whilst Canadian collectors would normally be able to find these coins in their change, this year the Royal Canadian Mint has struck a limited number of sets for collectors only! Find out why below…
Exclusive Canadian 50 Cent
This stunning 6 coin set of 2023 dated collector’s edition coins includes the circulating Canadian coin denominations such as the dollar, 25 cent and of course, the 50 cent.
But, what’s really caught the eye of collectors is the fact the 50 cent has been issued with selective colour especially for this set.
Featured on the 50 cent is a patriotic red and white mosaic of icons, forming the most famous Canadian emblem of the all – the maple leaf. Although each icon differs vastly, they all serve as true representations of the country.
Just 30,000 sets available for collectors
Perhaps most interestingly, these coins are not set to enter circulation this year…
The reason why?
The coins in this set feature Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy on the obverse. The Royal Canadian Mint have announced that they will not issue any 2023 dated Queen Elizabeth II coins into circulation, meaning this set is a collector exclusive!
In fact, just 30,000 sets have been issued worldwide, including a double-dated obverse to commemorate the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
As well as featuring Her Late Majesty’s portrait, these coins also include four pearls symbolising the four Queen Elizabeth II effigies that have graced Canadian coins.
International demand for QEII coins on the rise
We’ve recently seen an increase in international demand for coins featuring Queen Elizabeth II, with collectors worldwide rushing to secure commemorative keepsakes.
