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.
