Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Scarce, popular, beautiful, and impressive in the big five ounce 65 mm format, this highest quality annual proof set from the Royal Canadian Mint has a four year running track record of selling out immediately from the mint and appreciating in value in the secondary market to as much as $1,200 per coin. Big Coins 2019 features many reasons to be at the top of our “most recommended” list.

While the 2018 Big Coins sold out immediately from the RCM with a mintage of 1,500, the mintage for the new 2019 issue has been reduced to just 1,250, significantly enhancing scarcity and collectability. New for 2019, the Big Coin Dollar features an iconic Flying Loon design which will not appear on circulation issue coins.

Also new for 2019, each coin is enhanced with reverse gold plating adding a warm-toned gleam that creates a beautiful contrast next to the silver shine of the engraved relief and provides brilliant contrast to the effigy of Queen Elizabeth. Each coin in the set has a large 65 mm diameter and contains just over five ounces of .9999 fine silver. For collectors of the “absolute best”, Big Coins is highly sought after as Canada’s absolute highest quality annual set of all the familiar denominations. As pure silver coins produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, this collection is GST / HST exempt.

2019 Big Coins is being released one denomination at a time, approximately every second month. This year the first coin will come housed in the prestigious seven coin wood case, with spaces to add the remaining six coins as they are delivered. The first coin is the Dollar, which will be shipped in early October. Each coin will be shipped as they are released, and will be billed at $569.95 each as they are shipped.

Highlights:
• Mintage has been reduced from 1,500 in 2018 down to just 1,250!
• New dollar coin features the flying loon design
• Seventh coin – the one cent.
• All coins are enhanced with reverse gold plating on both sides.

First Coin: Flying Loon Dollar
The reverse features a re-creation of the iconic flying loon design first created to mark the 10th anniversary of Canada’s loon dollar in 1997. The design by Canadian artist Jean-Luc Grondin presents a striking image of a loon taking flight. Reverse gold plating fills the field while the coin’s silver surface draws the eye to the engraved relief, which includes the words “CANADA” and “DOLLAR”, and the date “2019”. The reverse gold-plated obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
