Royal Canadian Mint’s history of popular Queen Elizabeth II coins
2022 Queen Elizabeth Memorial $2
In December 2022, The Royal Canadian Mint issued a unique Queen Elizabeth II memorial $2 coin.
Just shy of 5 million $2 coins entered circulation.
However, when you consider Canada’s population is over 38 million, you’ll appreciate just how sought-after this coin is.
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.
Selectively coloured Insulin $2 coin
To mark the 100th anniversary of the discovery of Insulin, The Royal Canadian Mint issued this a special collector’s coin set.
Featured in the set was this unusual selectively coloured $2 coin.
It’s rare to see colour printing on a £2 coin – it’s only been seen once in 20 years in the UK!
Just 100,000 sets were issued for collectors worldwide, with this being the only way people could get their hands on the individual $2.
Thousands queue online for Queen Elizabeth II coins
Demand for Queen Elizabeth II coins was particularly felt at Mints around the world, following the sad news of her passing on 8th September.
Collectors heading to The Royal Australian Mint websites faced long queues, with coins issued within the previous few weeks in very high demand.
Considering the popularity of Royal Canadian Mint’s coins, paired with this being the last official Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Coin Set, we expect collector demand to be very high.

FIRST EVER King Charles stamps! When and where you can find them…
The FIRST EVER King Charles III stamps have been revealed!
And, eagle eyed collectors will spot Martin Jenning’s portrait of His Majesty appears on the design.
You can pre-order these stamps for your collection by clicking here, ahead of their general release 4th April.
However, tracking these stamps down in the wild will be a little trickier than finding the King Charles 50p in our change…
That’s because of King Charles III’s dedication to climate action and sustainability.
The brand-new stamps will coexist alongside the current Queen Elizabeth II ones and will also feature the new barcode design.
As the current stock of Queen Elizabeth II stamps becomes exhausted, we’ll start to see more of the new King Charles ones issued until eventually they all feature the King.
But what does that mean for collectors?
Well, next time you head to your local shop or supermarket to get a new book of stamps, you won’t know which monarch will appear on them.
So, not only does this increase the thrill of the hunt, but it’s also a fair opportunity for people to find these new stamps. You won’t be able to tell which stamps you have until your book is open.
These stamps will be issued from the 4th of April, so the countdown really has begun!
This release is going to be one for the history books.
Collectors will already be aware of the popularity of the first King Charles III 50p issued last year and that’s already off-sale at the Royal Mint in ALL specifications!
So here’s hoping you can get your hands on a brand new stamp when they’re available.
But, if you don’t want to risk missing out, then you can pre-order these stamps for your collection below!
