Investment Note
We generally don't speak of a mint set costing under $30 as an investment. However, the Royal Canadian Mint has added an interesting wrinkle this year - a new, even-lower mintage limit. This 7-Coin Mint Set has a mintage limit of only 55,000 (and all certificates are individually numbered), meaning that this set will be very hard to find in the future. Consider that on an annual basis, the U.S. Mint produces over 4 million (that's 4,000,000 !) uncirculated and proof sets combined, and you can see that this is a relatively tiny mintage limit for such an affordable set replete with iconic coins.

Highly Significant Circulating Coin Designs

Polar Bear
Canada’s bi-metallic two-dollar coin, launched in 1996, features a polar bear, the world’s largest terrestrial carnivore, which can weigh over 1400 pounds (650 kilograms). It lives near the cold seas and frozen ice of Canada’s far-north.

Common Loon
Launched in 1987, the reverse of the one-dollar coin, represents a common loon swimming against the rugged backdrop of the Canadian Shield. The loon’s haunting calls are one the quintessential sound of the Canadian wilderness in summer.

Canada’s Coat of Arms
The Canadian Coat of Arms, proclaimed in the 1921 and modified in 1996, reminds Canadians of their diverse heritage. It features elements from France (the fleur-de-lis), England (the three royal lions and rose), Scotland (a lion and thistle) and Ireland (the Irish harp and shamrock).

Caribou
An enduring symbol of the Canadian north, the majestically-antlered caribou has remained a Canadian icon since first apprearing on the twenty-five-cent piece in 1936.

Bluenose Schooner
In the 1921, Atlantic Canadians built one of the finest racing and fishing vessels in Canadian history, the Bluenose. Known for its speed, and almost unbeatable in a race, this ship first appeared on the ten-cent piece in 1937.

Beaver
The beaver is Canada’s national animal. Highly sought after for its rich fur in the 17th and 18th centuries, it was the mainstay of the colonial economy for centuries. Today, the beaver is revered as a symbol of hard work and perseverance.

Maple Leaf
Canada’s most-recognized national emblem, the Maple Leaf not only has pride of place on the Canadian flag, but appeared, in one form or another, on circulation coins in Canada long before Confederation in 1867.

Obverse
The obverse of each coin features the familiar designs found on the regular circulation coins of Canada as described and pictured above.

Reverse

The reverse of each coin features Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II of England, in profile facing right. This portrait, the fourth effigy of the queen to appear on Canadian coinage, was executed by the artist Susanna Blunt. The legend ELIZABETH II D. G. REGINA ("Elizabeth II, Queen by the Grace of God") and mint mark also appear.

Packaging
The coins are sealed inside a transparent, pliofilm holder, inside a full-color, protective keepsake envelope. An individually numbered certificate with full specifications accompanies the set.
