Celebrate the history and artistry of Canadian circulation coinage with this fine silver 10-cent piece—part of the Royal Canadian Mint’s new series featuring Canada’s six circulation coins. Each beautiful coin is composed of five ounces of fine silver and features selective gold plating on both the reverse and the obverse.
The reverse features Canadian artist Emanuel Hahn’s iconic image of a stylized schooner with tall sails flying sailing on the open sea. On the reverse, the schooner and water are gold-plated, as is the raised edge. The reverse is also engraved with the text “CANADA,” the date “2015,” and the face value of “10 CENTS.” The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Her Majesty’s portrait is gold-plated, along with the raised obverse edge.
With a very limited mintage of only 1,500 coins per issue, this series is sure to be highly sought after by collectors.
