Product Description

Ultra-low-mintage first day of minting cover features the coveted Medal of Bravery!

Sold out at the Mint!Created in 1972 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Medal of Bravery is one of three Decorations for Bravery that recognize people who risk their lives to save or protect another. The Medal of Bravery is awarded for  acts of heroism attempted under hazardous circumstances. The incident need not have taken place in Canada and the rescuer need not be Canadian, but Canadians or Canadian interests must be involved. The Governor General of Canada personally presents the Medal of Bravery in a ceremony held annually at Rideau Hall, Ottawa.

Investment & Availability Notes
There are only 5,000 of these very low priced first day of minting covers available. The 2006 10th Anniversary of the $2 Polar Bear Toonie First Day Cover (which also had the same low mintage limit) sold out within weeks. It has since increased significantly in price, as has the 2004 Colorized Poppy First Day Cover.
