Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Royal Canadian Mint!
For a young, growing colony, the opening of a domestic mint was a confident step towards nationhood. In 1931, the Mint transformed from a branch of Britain’s Royal Mint to a wholly Canadian institution and, by 1937, the first “-all-Canadian” coin designs-like the 1-cent maple leaf, the 5-cent beaver and the 10-cent Bluenose began circulating. These renowned coin designs are still in use today.
From the beginning, innovation has been the hallmark of the Mint with a revolutionary coin plating process, the purest 99.999% numismatic gold coin and the first colored circulation coin are just a few of the Mint’s internationally-renowned “firsts”- each a source of pride for collectors and Canadians alike.
This set takes you back 100 years to the 50-cent coin of 1908-Canada’s first domestically produced coin. This faithful replica coin is now double-dated (1908-2008) and struck in sterling silver to celebrate this centennial year.
