2020 Canada's First National Coinage Fine Silver Coin Set (No Tax)
This year marks the 150th anniversary of Canada's first national coins, which were issued in 1870. All four denominations (5, 10, 25, and 50 cents) have been lovingly remembered in this limited edition set. Crafted from 99.99% pure silver and twice its original size, each coin is a modern-day tribute to the past, to a legendary engraver, and to the maple wreath designs that made them distinctly Canadian.
