Product Description

This SPECIAL EDITION mint set (mintage limit = 500 = TRULY RARE!) includes a special medallion found nowhere else!

2011 ANA Chicago Mint Set CoinsSold out at the Mint!This truly rare, Special Edition Uncirculated Mint Set includes an example of all but one of the circulation coins of Canada, each of which features a design of national importance, including:

    One Cent Maple Leaf Penny
    Ten Cent Bluenose Schooner Dime
    Twenty-Five Cent Caribou Quarter
    Fifty Cent Coat of Arms Half Dollar
    One Dollar Common Loon "Loonie"
    Two Dollar Polar Bear "Toonie"

All are specially-struck and hand-picked for these high-quality sets. Each coin has a proof-like finish and includes the RCM mint mark on the queen side of each coin! Canadian half dollars are no longer issued to banks for general circulation, so these mint sets are now the only way to get these coins individually.

Each set also includes a special ANA Chicago Coin Show Medallion - with a total mintage of only 500, found nowhere else!
Investment Note
We generally don't speak of a mint set with such a low price as an investment. However, the Royal Canadian Mint has added a couple of interesting wrinkles - an unbelievably low mintage limit, and special medallion, found only in this set. This 7-Coin Mint Set has a mintage limit of only 500 (and all are individually numbered). That's less than 1% of the total mintage of the standard edition 2010 7-Coin Mint Set!

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 appearing 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.

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.

One standard circulation coin is not included in this set (but is available in the standard edition 2010 7-Coin Mint Set):

    Five Cent Beaver Nickel

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 an impressive, full color blister pack card. Each is individually numbered. More than one set may be available, so serial numbers will vary.
