2008 Royal Canadian Mint 100th Anniversary Centennial Coin & Stamp Set

For a young, growing colony, the opening of a domestic mint was a confident step towards nationhood. In 1931, the Mint transformed from a branch of Britain's Royal Mint to a wholly Canadian institution and, by 1937, the first "all-Canadian" coin designs-like the 1-cent maple leaf, the 5-cent beaver and the 10-cent Bluenose began circulating. These renowned coin designs are still in use today.

From the beginning, innovation has been the hallmark of the Mint with a revolutionary coin plating process, the purest 99.999% numismatic gold coin and the first coloured circulation coin just a few of the Mint's internationally-renowned firsts, each a source of pride for collectors and Canadians alike.

Highlights
- Packaged in a genuine wood box featuring engraving of the Mint's historic building on the lid.
- Each set includes a double-dated (1908-2008) sterling silver proof replica of the 1908 50-cent piece.
- Housed in a protective mount, the companion mint postage stamp depicts the original reverse of the coin.
- Numbered, limited edition (16,000) full-colour information booklet featuring vintage photos and historical facts about the Mint.
