Product Description

Get the COMPLETE 5-COIN COLLECTION of five different Canadian dime legacy designs, struck in pure silver with selective gold plating and a proof finish! Even better, there are TWO DIFFERENT SIZES - 2 troy ounce and 1 troy ounce coins!

Investment Opportunity!The Legacy of the Dime set is a unique retrospective look at Canada’s 10-cent circulation coins through the years, as struck by the Royal Canadian Mint. Many times the size of the original issues, these selectively gold-plated pieces are an enduring tribute to five designs that have graced the diminutive-sized canvas, upon which history itself has been etched. Each beautifully rendered, legal tender dime highlights the design in 24-karat, selective gold plating. This unique set is comprised of two different sized silver proofs: two 2 troy ounce and three 1 troy ounce coins!

All 5 Historic Designs!
All five coins in this set are masterfully crafted in 99.99% pure silver, while selective gold plating highlights the engraved relief on both the obverse and reverse.

1936 Dot
Reproduced as a 2 oz. fine silver coin, the exceptionally rare 1936 Dot 10-Cent coin features W. H. J. Blakemore’s modified version of an original design by L.C. Wyon. Topped by St. Edward’s Crown, the crossed maple bough is a fixture on all Canadian 10-cent coins issued between 1858 and 1936. A small dot beneath the tied ribbon is the identifying mark of a coin struck with the old obverse during the transition from the reign of King George V to King George VI. The reverse features the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. Mackennal.

1947 Bluenose Schooner with Maple Leaf
Also reproduced as a 2 oz. fine silver coin is the 1947 Maple Leaf 10-Cent coin. The obverse features Emanuel Hahn’s depiction of the famous Nova Scotia schooner, Bluenose, under sail. On the reverse, the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget includes the Royal Title GEORGIVS VI D:G:REX ET IND:IMP, which became outdated once India gained its independence on August 15, 1947. Included in this modern-day tribute is the small maple leaf that was added next to the year, to denote coins struck with the old reverse while the Royal Canadian Mint awaited new master tooling.

1967 Centennial
The 1 oz. fine silver version of the 1967 Centennial 10-Cent coin features the beloved obverse design by Alex Colville. Designed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Confederation, the image of a mackerel pays tribute to Canada’s coasts and represents the idea of continuity. Instead of the denticles seen on the 2 oz. coins, round beads encircle the obverse and reverse (which features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin).

2011 Year of the Volunteer
As created by Royal Canadian Mint engravers, the obverse of the 2001 Year of the Volunteer 10-Cent coin is brought to life once more in 1 oz. fine silver. A curving legend YEAR OF VOLUNTEERS ANNÉE DES BÉNÉVOLES separates the side-profile view of marching mothers and the sun below, whose rays symbolize a volunteer’s enlightening effect on their community. The reverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Dora de Pédery-Hunt.

2017 Wings of Peace
The 2017 Wings of Peace is the most recent commemorative issue of the 10-cent coin. As part of the My Canada, My Inspiration collection commemorating CANADA 150, it features a design by Amy Choi of Calgary, Alberta, and highlights Canada’s reputation as a peacekeeping nation. Instead of a traditional olive branch, the stylized dove clutches a maple leaf that stands as a symbol of hope, peace and good faith. The reverse features the CANADA 150 logo and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
