Product Description

This seven-coin mint set includes culturally-significant coins of hand-selected quality, including the bi-metal polar bear twonie - and this year has a mintage limit!

Sold out at the Mint!The 2008 Proof-Like Uncirculated Mint Set includes an example of each and every one of the circulation coins of Canada, each of which features a design of national importance, including:

Mint Set Coins     One Cent Maple Leaf Penny
    Five Cent Beaver Nickel
    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.
Investment Note
We generally don't speak of a mint set costing less than $20 as an investment. However, the Royal Canadian Mint has added an interesting wrinkle this year - a mintage limit. This 7-Coin Mint Set has a mintage limit of only 75,000 (and all certificates are individually numbered), meaning that this set will be very hard to find in the future. Consider that on an annual basis, the U.S. Mint produces over 4 million (that's 4,000,000 !) uncirculated and proof sets combined, and you can see that this is a relatively tiny mintage limit for such an affordable set replete with iconic coins.

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 a transparent, pliofilm holder, inside a protective keepsake envelope. An individually numbered certificate with full specifications accompanies the set.
