The coins in this First Strikes set are among the first 2023-dated circulation coins struck at the Royal Canadian Mint’s Winnipeg facility, and this year’s set holds the distinction of being the first of its kind to feature the new Canadian effigy of His Majesty King Charles III. The collector case contains a Special Wrap Roll of each standard denomination ($2, $1, 25¢, 10¢, 5¢) for a total of five rolls, each one wrapped in premium paper and sealed with a holographic label.

Lock in your 2023 circulation coins with these First Strikes. Order yours today before they’re gone!

In keeping with tradition, His Majesty King Charles III’s profile faces left on each coin’s obverse—this is the opposite direction in which the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II was depicted during her reign.

The previous effigy update was in 2003, when the fourth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II was debuted on Canada’s coins. The more informal depiction was designed by Vancouver-based artist Susanna Blunt.

Design:
  • Polar Bear: Introduced in 1996, Canada's bi-metallic two-dollar coin features the polar bear, an Arctic species that is a symbol of strength. Artist: Brent Townsend
  • Common Loon: A defining image of Canada and its currency, the loon made its coin debut on June 30, 1987. Artist: Robert-Ralph Carmichael
  • Caribou: The antlered representative of Canada's northern wilderness, the caribou first appeared on the 25-cent coin in 1937. Artist: Emanuel Hahn
  • Bluenose: An enduring symbol of Canada's maritime history and heritage, Bluenose first appeared on the 10-cent coin in 1937. Artist: Emanuel Hahn
  • Beaver: The five-cent coin’s beaver design dates back to 1937, but the animal is a centuries-old icon that is synonymous with Canada's early history. Artist: G. E. Kruger-Gray
