Happy Canada Day!

When I think of Canada several things spring to mind: the iconic maple leaf, the caribou and beaver, ice hockey and Celine Dion, just to name a few. But at the top of my list is without a doubt the Royal Canadian Mint.

As one of the three ‘Royal’ Mints in the world – alongside The Royal Mint here in the UK and the Royal Australian Mint – they are known for their innovation and impressive minting techniques, resulting in some of the most magnificent issues I’ve ever seen.

So to celebrate Canada Day, I’ve rounded-up my top five favorite Canadian releases, each demonstrating why they are one of the most prestigious mints in the world. Believe me, some of these issues are truly incredible!

Take a look for yourself…  

The R&D Security Test Token Set

Canada Security Test Token Set - Happy Canada Day!

It will come as no surprise to know that the Royal Canadian Mint is the market leader in numismatic security.

The R&D Test Token set offers us a glimpse at never-before-seen minting techniques which will shape our future coins, and are sure to impress even the most seasoned coin collectors. 

Included are six specimen tokens with high-tech design elements showcasing fascinating examples of tri-metal technology and micro-text. What’s more, each token included in the set is a real life trial piece which has been used in laboratory testing. So each set is completely unique – no two will be the same!

Lest We Forget Silver Helmet-Shaped Coin

Canada 2018 WWI Armistice Antique Silver Helmet Shaped Coin1 - Happy Canada Day!

This issue truly is one of a kind. The minting expertise required to strike such an impressive coin is astounding – I’ve never seen a coin like it.

Not only is it struck from the Mint’s signature .9999 Pure Silver, but it’s an incredible miniature replica of the steel Brodie helmets worn by British and Commonwealth forces during the First World War.

How the Mint achieved this result I will never know – it remains a closely guarded secret. There are even engraved cracks and markings you would find on an original helmet. The final antique finish gives an authentic distressed look, the fine detail is incredible. Click here to find out more >>

Pure Silver D-Day Coin

AT Canada 2019 Quarter Oz D Day Silver Proof Product Images Obverse Reverse 1 - Happy Canada Day!

The first step in to battle takes incredible courage, and this year to mark the landmark 75th anniversary of D-Day the Royal Canadian Mint issued perhaps the most poignant D-Day commemorative yet.

This stunning issue perfectly captures the moment Canadian soldiers set foot on Juno Beach. It is expertly struck from a quarter ounce of .9999 Pure Silver – or “four nines Silver”, the purest grade available for which the Mint is known – and has an innovative reverse proof finish which replicates the texture of the sand.

3D Monarch Caterpillar Coin

Canada 2018 Murano Glass Caterpillar Silver Proof Coin Lifestyle1 - Happy Canada Day!

Some of nature’s most beautiful things come in small packages. And this remarkable issue is no different. 

The Monarch Caterpillar Pure 1oz Silver Coin is a perfect combination of Italian craftsmanship and Canadian design. It features a stunning 3D Monarch Caterpillar handcrafted from Murano glass, poised upon the selectively coloured design of a swamp milkweed plant leaf.

The combined traditional engraving, colour and Murano glass creates a truly unforgettable piece. Click here to find out more >>

John Lennon Silver 1oz Coin

John Lennon Give Peace a Chance 1oz Coin Obverse Reverse 1 - Happy Canada Day!

It’s hard to believe that just 50 years ago, John Lennon and Yoko Ono conducted their “Bed-in for Peace” protest against the Vietnam War and debuted the most famous anti-war anthem of all time – Give Peace a Chance.

It was a moment that has forever cemented a bond between John Lennon and Canada. A bond that is marked by the release of this limited edition John Lennon commemorative.

Using bespoke printing technology the coin features a photographic image of John and Yoko during their protest and is struck from 1oz Pure Silver to a mirror-like proof finish.

Considering the worldwide popularity of John Lennon and the legacy of Give Peace a Chance, it comes as no surprise that this coin has been incredibly popular. Click here to find out more >>


But that’s not all! There’s plenty of other fantastic coins that have been issued by the Royal Canadian Mint. You can take a look at the full range by clicking here >>

FIRST EVER Peter Pan Silver 50p struck by a special little girl…

It’s now been over a week since the brand new Peter Pan 50p coins were released. And what a week it’s been…

Not only have the coins proven to be hugely popular with collectors, with tens of thousands of people queueing on our website to get their hands on one.

But, in the first week alone the coins have raised an incredible amount for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity… which is growing each day!  

To add to this wonderful story, what many people don’t know is that the first ever Peter Pan Silver 50p was struck by a very special girl called Olivia at the Tower Mint in London. But why Olivia?

Olivia Peter Pan 50p 1024x682 - FIRST EVER Peter Pan Silver 50p struck by a special little girl...

Olivia, whose father Elliot works for the Tower Mint, has the rare genetic disorder Williams Syndrome and has been under the care of Great Ormond Street Hospital since she was 3 years old. As such, it felt like the perfect piece in the jigsaw to give her the honour of striking the very first Silver Peter Pan 50p Coin. And what a great job she did – take a look to see her in action below…

Olivia strikes the WORLD’S FIRST Peter Pan Silver 50p Coin

Talking about his daughter striking the first coin, Elliot said: “I was filled with pride seeing Olivia, who was proudly dressed as Tinkerbell, strike the first Peter Pan coin. Olivia’s mum, Stacey, and younger brother, Charlie, were also in attendance and it was a great moment to experience together. For our family to be part of something that will raise funds to help support other children at Great Ormond Street Hospital is very special.”

The Peter Pan Silver 50p Strike Event at the Tower Mint

It was fantastic event, also attended by Louise Parkes, Chief Executive of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, who said: “We’re so grateful to The Westminster Collection and the Tower Mint for commemorating the special legacy of JM Barrie’s gift to Great Ormond Street Hospital. The money raised from the sale of these coins will support the seriously ill children and young people who are cared for there, children just like Olivia, who did a fantastic job striking the first coin.”

If you’re yet to secure your favourite coin from the collection and support Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, then make sure you tune into our BRAND NEW Peter Pan Show this Friday 21st June.

The show will be premiered on our Facebook Page at 12.30, during which we’ll be announcing the lucky WINNERS of our Peter Pan Silver 50p giveaway and much more! Make sure to like or follow our page before then to avoid missing out.
