The Royal Canadian Mint has released a stunning set of coins in 2018, including an exclusive piece marking the 200th anniversary of the 49th parallel.

Combining three technologies into one outstanding 50 cent coin, Steve McPhee’s design utilises vibrant colouring to superimpose the red and white Canadian flag across a map of the country, whilst an engraved line highlights the border between Canada and the USA.

But that’s not all…

The brand new coin combines three technologies into one outstanding 50 cent coin

When plunged into darkness, special luminescent material lights up the coin, including the latitude and longitude lines – creating a glow in the dark map of Canada! 

This stunning set includes one of every denomination in circulation from the $2 to the 5-Cent, but the stand out coin is the exclusive 50-Cent coin – which has only been made available as part of the set.

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the famous border between Canada and the US, a brand new set of coins have been released.

In 2017, The Royal Canadian Mint released a sell out set of coins celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday, highlighting this milestone event in Canadian history.

The set also included a glow in the dark piece – the two-dollar coin, (or toonie), celebrating the wonders of Canada with an evocative design featuring the Northern Lights.

Canada released the world’s first glow-in-the-dark coin into circulation in 2017…

Collectors were desperate to secure this unusual coin, but just 3 million of these coins were released into general circulation in Canada, meaning just one in ten Canadians were able to find one in their change.

In fact, each and every one of these special Royal Canadian Mint releases have become a collector’s item and going by previous issues, 25 cents and $2 coins are extremely difficult to get hold of.

There’s no doubt that if coins such as these were released in the UK they would create a collecting frenzy! Canadian Change Checkers are certainly incredibly lucky to be able to get hold of fantastic coins such as this from the world renowned Canadian mint.

On the 1st July 2017, Canada turned 150. To celebrate, The Royal Canadian Mint released a once-in-a-life-time set of coins highlighting this milestone event in Canadian history.

And one of them glows in the dark!

The two-dollar coin, (or toonie), celebrates the wonders of Canada with an evocative design featuring the Northern Lights and it even glows in the dark thanks to special ink that contains luminescent material.

The glow-in-the-dark coin that every Canadian Change Checker wants!

The specially designed two-dollar coin, which was issued to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada, features two people paddling in a canoe as the northern lights dance high above – which the Cree peoples called “the dance of the spirits”.

When the coin is put in the dark, the aurora borealis glows softly, thanks to a new ink formulation that contains luminescent material.

Just 3 million of these coins were released into general circulation in Canada, meaning just one in ten Canadians were able to find one in their change.

There is no doubt that these coins would create a collecting frenzy if a similar event like this was to happen in the UK.

5 brand new coins have been struck by The Royal Canadian Mint to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada.

In fact, each and every one of these special Royal Canadian Mint releases have become a collector’s item and going by previous issues, 25 cents and $2 coins are extremely difficult to get hold of.
