What do a polar bear, a moose and a hockey skate all have in common? They’re all Canadian icons of course! But if there’s one image above all others to represent Canadian pride and identity, it has to be the maple leaf.
This set of six coins from Canada includes an exclusive 50-cent, featuring a patriotic red and white mosaic of icons, forming the famed Canadian maple leaf.
What’s more, whilst these coins are normally struck for circulation, as Canada commemorates the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II, a rare opportunity sees these classic Canadian coins issued as non-circulating collector’s editions.
In fact, just 30,000 are available worldwide and we’ve managed to secure an initial allocation of 250 for Change Checkers quick enough to get their hands on them.
Each coin in the set not only features Her majesty’s portrait on the obverse, but also includes four pearls (symbolising the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins) and the double date of her reign.
Demand for Queen Elizabeth II coins has soared of late and with a set as limited as this, stock won’t last long…
