Product Description

Cute baby raccoon cubs, a tiny mintage limit, and unique baby animal bimetal twonie and a specimen-finish loonie (both found only here!) make for a must-have set!

Sold out at the Mint!Get it while you can! This Special Edition 6-Coin Specimen Set offer unique opportunities - some obvious, others less so:
    • The bimetallic $2 coin features two baby raccoons (instead of the usual polar bear).
    • The $1 "loonie" design is issued with a specimen finish for only the sixth time since 2003!
    • Each of the above coins is available in this Special Edition Set (and nowhere else!).
    • The mintage limit is only 15,000, a tiny number by any standards, even when compared with the regular edition annual specimen set - which sells out at the Mint each and every year! This is only the sixth time since 2000 that the Mint has issued more than one Specimen Set in a given year!

A quick sell out occurred, just like the first five years' 2010 Baby Lynx, 2011 Baby Elk, 2012 Baby Wolf, 2013 Baby Black Bear Cubs and 2014 Baby Bunny Rabbits sets!

We feel that the $1 specimen finish loonie is the real hidden gem or sleeper here - all $1 and loon collectors need this coin, and 15,000 is far too few to satisfy demand! A quick sell out occurred, just like the first five years' 2010 Baby Lynx, 2011 Baby Elk, 2012 Baby Wolf, 2013 Baby Black Bear Cubs and 2014 Baby Bunny Rabbits sets!

Special Edition Specimen Set!
Raccoon Specimen Set Coins The Specimen Set from the Royal Canadian Mint is indeed unique, unlike any other coin set found anywhere else in the world. Each coin features the mint's distinctive "specimen" finish, a three-fold combination of different finishes. The design (raised area or relief) includes both brilliant and frosted finishes, while the fields (background) are subtly striated, providing a matte appearance. These combine to give the Specimen Set coins their special aesthetic appeal and flair.

The 2015 Special Edition Specimen Set includes a specimen-finish example of each and every one of the circulation coins of Canada, each of which features a design of national importance, including:

    Five Cent Beaver Nickel
    Ten Cent Bluenose Schooner Dime
    Twenty-Five Cent Caribou Quarter
    Fifty Cent Coat of Arms Half Dollar
    One Dollar Common Loonie "Loonie"
        - Sixth standard, specimen finish Loonie $1 since 2003!
    Two Dollar Bimetallic Baby Raccoons "Twonie"

However, instead of a standard polar bear $2 toonie coin, the 2015 Specimen Set includes a twonie found only in this set (and not released into circulation). This one-year-only design features two baby raccoons - cute as the dickens, chasing each other around the trunk of a tree!

Investment Notes

The standard edition, annual Specimen Set sells out every year, despite a mintage limit of 35,000 to 40,000! This 2015 Special Edition Specimen Set has a mintage limit less than half that - only 15,000! In addition, this set is the only way to get the a specimen finish $1 common loon dollar (it's not in the standard edition, annual Specimen Set) and the Baby Raccoons BiMetal $2 Toonie! All collectors of Canadian dollar coins and all loonie collectors need the common loon dollar. These factors, combined with the premium packaging, make this set a tremendous value!

A quick sell out occurred, just like the first five years' 2010 Baby Lynx, 2011 Baby Elk, 2012 Baby Wolf, 2013 Baby Black Bear Cubs and 2014 Baby Bunny Rabbits sets!
