Special Features:
- This 5-ounce pure silver 1-dollar coin features noted Canadian wildlife artist Robert-Ralph Carmichael's loon design, first issued with the introduction of the 1-dollar circulation coin in 1987. This design has been used continuously on Canadian "loonies," with a number of notable exceptions.
- Part of the Royal Canadian Mint's exciting 6-coin series of 5-ounce pure silver versions of Canada's 5-cent, 10-cent, 25-cent, 50-cent, 1-dollar, and 2-dollar circulation coins.
- Selective gold plating on both the reverse and obverse sides of the coin makes this series particularly lovely and exceptionally unique.
- With a very limited mintage of only 1,500 coins per issue, this series is sure to be highly sought after by collectors.
- Drawing its inspiration from minting itself, this coin makes an exquisite gift, an inspiring introduction to collecting, or an important addition for any collector interested in Canadian subjects, Canadian and international circulation coinage, or minting history.
