Own the next generation of high security coinage
The Royal Canadian Mint is a market leader in numismatic security, it is always exciting to see new and innovative products coming out of their Research and Development lab.
Today you have the opportunity to secure the Royal Canadian Mint’s latest R&D Security Token Set. It showcases some never before seen minting techniques which are guaranteed to impress even the most seasoned of collectors.
Featuring high-tech design elements
This set includes six specimen tokens with high-tech design aspects which will help shape the coins of tomorrow. The highlights include:
Tri-metal: a product of the Mint’s patented tri-metal technology, each token has an outer ring of brass-plated steel, the reverse features a maple leaf on a nickel-plated steel insert, and the obverse features the Royal Canadian Mint's logo on a copper-plated steel insert.
Caribou & Moose: featuring micro-text to give definition to the fur and a mixture of raised and incused elements to create a unique texture.
Pie-chart: if you look closely you will see each segment is defined by different sized and orientated micro-text on both the obverse and reverse.
But what makes these test tokens even more remarkable is that fact that the pieces included in the set are the real trial pieces which have been used in calibration and laboratory testing, so each one has been tried and tested making the collection truly unique – no two will be the same!
COMPLETELY SOLD OUT at The Mint
This revolutionary set has proved immensely popular with collectors, so much so it is now COMPLETELY SOLD OUT at The Mint.
We have managed to secure just 77 sets for UK collectors, so you too can now own a piece of numismatic history in the making.
