Royal Canadian Mint Offers Silver Jubilee Coins!

Celebrating The 60th anniversary of the reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II


The Royal Canadian Mint has issued several new coins in celebration of Queen Elizabeth's Jubilee. Local post offices carry coin sets each in recognition of 20 years of Queen Elizabeth's rule which retail for 19.95. If you are looking for an extra special coin to mark this very unique and special occasion, the Mint has more exclusive offerings as well.

Limited Edition Coins Marking Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee


THE QUEEN'S DIAMOND JUBILEE - $50 GOLD AND $20 SILVER ULTRA-HIGH RELIEF COINS
The wait is over for the official celebration of the 60th anniversary of the reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as Queen of Canada. The Mint is proud to mark the occasion with exciting new proof, ultra-high relief gold and silver coins.

In a contemporary effigy by Canadian portrait artist Laurie McGaw, the profile of Queen Elizabeth II regally stands out on the Mint's first ultra-high relief gold coin. Crafted of 99.999% pure gold and bearing a $50 face value, this amazing coin was created through an innovative technique which pushes the apex of the design's relief to extreme heights normally found only in medallic art. Striking the purest gold in the world at such a high relief presented a mix of challenges and advantages due to the softness, malleability, and flow rate of gold. The result is an image of extraordinary height and fluidity in a rare coin limited to a world-wide mintage of 500 and retailing for $2,999.99 CDN.

A 99.99% pure silver, $20 face value version of this coin design was quadruple-struck and hand polished to create coins which are individual works of art, given the minute differences in surface contours imparted by the extensive handcrafting of each coin. Only 7,500 of these fine collectibles have been crafted and each retail for $129.95 CDN.
