Founded by the Canadian government, the Royal Canadian Mint are a leading supplier of currency and bullion coins globally. Set up as a branch of The Royal Mint to refine gold from the Yukon in the late 1800’s, the RCM today manufacture the ‘Maple’ investment coin in both gold and silver.
This richly detailed coin was inspired by a popular historic postcard from 1899, a time when it was common for collectibles like postcards and commemorative dishware to feature a country's arms.
The reverse of this silver coin centres around the seven-province shield used in Canada from the 1870s to the early twentieth century. It bears the arms of the four founding provinces (Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia) as well as those that were added shortly after Confederation (Manitoba, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island). The central shield is surmounted by a stylized royal crown. At its base is a beaver and a ribbon bearing the bilingual text "DOMINION OF/DU CANADA". Flanking the central shield are four individual versions of the shields of the original provinces, with Ontario and Nova Scotia on the left and Quebec and New Brunswick on the right. Each of individual shields is encircled by a laurel wreath. The background is filled with stylized maple leaves.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maple wooden box with a black beauty box. Get our last one today!
