Low Mintage just 1,500 Coins
Get yours before it sells out!
This huge low mintage 2016 pure silver two dollar coin is the final coin in the 2016 “Big Coins” pure silver proof set. The subscription to the 2015 six piece set sold out from the Royal Canadian Mint within minutes of its release, and all individual coins also sold out on the day of release. Values of all coins released so far in this series have gone up in the secondary market, in the range of $700 to $1,200 each. In addition to being spectacular looking coins, the coins in this series now form the top quality coin set in Canada, and individually represent the highest quality coin for each denomination.
The reverse design features Brent Townsend’s image of an adult polar bear standing on an ice floe, gazing out over the early summer Arctic landscape. The polar bear and ice floe are gold-plated, as is the raised edge. The reverse is also engraved with the word “CANADA”, the date “2015”, and the face value of “2 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The coin is double struck to ensure fine detail and a near flawless surface, while the design is further enhanced with selective colour highlighting the coin’s main design.
The mintage of this coin and others in the Big Coins series is extremely low, with only 1,500 coins of each design being produced. As a pure silver coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, there is no HST or GST applicable on this item.
