2017 Canada $1 30th Anniversary of the Loonie Pure Gold 2-coin Set (No Tax)

Affectionately dubbed "the loonie," Canada's $1 circulation coin has become a cherished national symbol for Canadians since its debut on June 30, 1987. The now-ubiquitous image of a loon looms large in Canadian iconography, but it wasn't the design intended for the coin - had the original dies not vanished in transit, the silver dollar's Voyageur image would appear where the loon roosts today.

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Canada's golden-hued circulation coin, this exquisite two-coin set revisits history by featuring the now-iconic loonie alongside its original design - Canada's $1 circulation coin that never was.

- Not one, but two pieces of history are yours to collect, as one of Canada's most iconic circulations coins celebrates its 30th anniversary!
- An exclusive collecting opportunity: A 99.99% pure gold "loonie" showcased side-by-side with the Voyageur design that was intended to appear on the coin - a unique comparison of what is next to what could have been Canada's one-dollar circulation coin!
- Both designs are enhanced by the selective application of magnificent platinum plating on both the obverse and the reverse.
- No detail was spared: both coins share the same distinctive shape and outline as the 11-sided circulation coin!
- An outstanding example of craftsmanship thanks to precision engraving, the careful use of finishing techniques, and the striking effect created by the platinum plated elements against the coin's surface.

Wooden box with black beauty box.
