2008 Canada Complete 4-coin Playing Card Money Set in Deluxe Case

2008 Canada Complete 4-coin Playing Card money set issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in a special deluxe Royal mint case with the COAs for each coin (may be lightly toned)

Many items have been used for money throughout human history, but arguably the most surprising are the playing cards which replaced coinage during the 17th and 18th centuries when it became scarce in the isolated colony of New France.

This exciting series showcases the fascinating history of "playing card money" with coins that feature a unique rectangular shape and combine colour and selective gold plating for the first time. Four coins make up this set: Jack of Hearts (2008), Queen of Spades (2008), Ten of Spades (2009) and King of Hearts (2009).
