This very affordable $10 coin weighs just over half an ounce of pure silver and is inspired by Canada’s iconic penny. Mintage is limited to just 30,000 pieces. As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.
Royal Canadian Mint engravers have meticulously reproduced the iconic design that appeared on the Canadian one-cent coin from 1937 to 2012 (with the exception of the centennial issue in 1967). Originally engraved by G.E. Kruger-Gray, it features a maple twig with two leaves, the larger leaf on the right slightly overlapping the other. Below the leaves is a commemorative text that reads “150 YEARS/ANS,” and is unique to this coin.
