The Commemorative Mint Medallion
Happy 110th birthday to the Royal Canadian Mint! The included medallion features detailed depictions of the Royal Canadian Mint buildings in Ottawa and Winnipeg, marking 110 years since the opening of Canada's own mint in Ottawa! In addition, its the same size (36.07 mm diameter) and weight (23.17 g) as a standard Canadian commemorative silver dollar.

What's more, the mint medallion features a special finish: proof on the reverse, reverse proof on the obverse, to highlight the features of each building! The medallion features designs by Kristin McPherson. Its reverse shows the turreted façade of the Ottawa branch of the Royal Canadian Mint, as viewed from beyond its wrought iron security fence, while the obverse features the iconic silhouette of the Winnipeg branch.
