2022 Canada $5 Moments to Hold: 100th Anniversary of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair Fine Silver Coin (No Tax)

Share your moments from The Royal! Each year, hundreds of thousands of visitors, exhibitors and competitors come together at Toronto’s Exhibition Place for a celebration of excellence in agriculture, local food and equine sport. The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair has grown to become the largest combined indoor agricultural fair and equestrian competition in the world, and 2022 marks a major milestone for this annual event. The Royal’s centennial anniversary is commemorated on the Royal Canadian Mint's final Moments to Hold coin; its reverse design highlights some of the events and exhibits featured at The Royal, where the champion rosette is the greatest aspiration of breeders, producers, growers and exhibitors alike.

Part of The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, The Royal Horse Show is a world-class equestrian event that draws more than 1,000 national and international riders. Over the course of the ten-day event, athletes and horses compete for over $1 million in prize money and the title of Royal Champion.

If you love to cook, bake or preserve, you can enter your signature food item in one of several food competitions—categories range from jams and jellies to hot sauces, and butter tarts too!

Designed by Canadian artist Claire Watson, the coin’s reverse is double dated (“1922-2022”) to commemorate the 100th anniversary of The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. Its mix of crop and livestock-themed design elements represents some of the events and exhibits featured at The Royal, while the event’s logo (“THE ROYAL”) and a champion rosette honour a century of agricultural and equine excellence. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
