Investment Note
Here's a set with a lot of investment potential, to say nothing of cachet! The Continuity of the Crown silver proofs follow hot on the heels of the highly successful Vignettes of Royalty Series, which featured two firsts:
     1)  It was the first series of ultra high relief Canadian coins!
     2)  It was the first series of double-effigy coins in Canadian history!
These are therefore only the second series of double headed coins struck by the Royal Canadian Mint! Couple this with the very low mintage of only 10,000 and the unusual $15 denomination, and this looks like a sure winner.

This photo shows the ultra high relief nature of the 2008 $15 Silver Proof featuring Victoria from CanadaTechnical Note
The Royal Canadian Mint is applying its expertise in the design, engraving and striking of medals and medallic art to this special series of coins. Each features a portrait struck in ultra high medallic relief. Each planchet or blank is individually hand-polished before it is quadruple-struck. The edge of the coin is plain, not reeded, unlike most Canadian commemorative and collector coins, in keeping with its medallic nature. Slight differences in the frosted cameo relief and proof-like fields are normal for this high-relief striking process, just as they are with high relief medals.
