1996 Canada $2.00 Uncirculated Coin and Bank Note Set (outer sleeve may have some creases)

Designed to replace the $2.00 bank note, the new bi-metallic $2.00 coin was issued in February 1996. Featuring the polar bear, it continues the wildlife theme tradition preferred by Canadians.

The bi-metallic $2 coin that was issued on February 19, 1996 was specifically designed to replace the $2 bank note. This beautiful collector’s set contains the 1996 Canada $2 Uncirculated Coin and Bank Note. The newly designed coin features a reverse design by Brent Townsend and is complimented by an image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. This wonderful set is a perfect addition for any collector’s set.

Special Features:
- The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This image appears on all Canadian circulation coins.
- The reverse presents an adult polar bear in early summer, hunting along the edge of an ice floe in proximity of the coast. He is paused, frozen in his tracks, concentrating on a distant movement or fresh scent.

Packaging:
Folder comes in a tri-panel cardboard presentation folder. The middle panel contains the $2.00 bank note in a hard plastic case. The coin is in the final panel and the folded folder slides into a nicely designed slip cover case.
