2022 Canada $2 Renewed Silver Twoonie: Path of Knowledge Fine Silver (No Tax)

The second coin in the exclusive Royal Canadian Mint's Master's Club series! The second instalment in the Renewed Silver Toonie series re-visits the Path to Knowledge $2 circulation coin, which was issued on July 1, 2000 to commemorate the new millennium. Its image of a polar bear mother imparting “KNOWLEDGE” to the next generation is just as inspirational today—especially on this selectively gold-plated 2 oz. 99.99% pure silver coin, which is nearly twice the size (50 mm) of the original.

Enhanced with selective gold plating, your coin’s reverse is a reproduction of the Path of Knowledge $2 circulation coin designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco and issued in July 2000 to mark a new millennium. Its image of a female polar bear with her two cubs represents the transfer of knowledge from one generation to the next, as indicated by the inscription “KNOWLEDGELE SAVOIR” on the outer circle inside the rim. The selectively gold-plated obverse features the 1990-2002 effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Dora de Pédery-Hunt.

The Path to Knowledge $2 coin made its big debut on July 1, 2000—Canada Day. It was launched at a citizenship ceremony at Downsview, Toronto.

Special Features:
• The second coin in an exclusive series! In the same spirit as the Renewed Silver Dollar (2015-present) and Renewed Silver Half Dollar (2017-2020) series, the Renewed Silver Toonie series showcases the different designs that have graced Canada’s $2 circulation coin since 1996.
• A PRECIOUS METAL UPGRADE! The combination of 99.99% pure silver and selective 99.99% pure gold plating re-creates the distinctive colour contrast that makes Canada’s bi-metallic $2 coin so unique. This is a renewed and enhanced version of the 2000 coin, and nearly twice the size too!
• A MASTERS CLUB EXCLUSIVE! The Renewed Silver Toonie series was specifically designed for Masters Club.
• HISTORIC OBVERSE! Just like the original coin issued in 2000, this larger-sized collectible features the diademed effigy by Dora de Pédery-Hunt; the historic effigy was in use from 1990 until 2002, before it was replaced in 2003 by the current “uncrowned” effigy by Susanna Blunt.
• VERY LOW MINTAGE! The first coin sold out quickly, and given its exceptionally low mintage of just 2,500, this coin will likely sell out too.

The coin comes encapsulated, presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell, and packaged in a graphic beauty box.
