1st July marks Canada Day. It has been celebrated since 1867 when the country became a self-governing region within the British empire, combining three colonies to create Canada.
So fittingly, you can celebrate with some of the most sought-after coins from The Royal Canadian Mint:
SOLD-OUT at the Mint: 2023 Maple Leaf 1oz Silver Proof Coin
This 1oz Pure Silver coin depicts the iconic Maple Leaf design – and has already sold-out an edition limit of 8,000. But, we have just 41 remaining…
SOLD-OUT: Canada 2023 St Edward’s Crown Fine Silver Coin
This is the perfect way to honour the Coronation of King Charles III, with a tribute to the St Edward’s Crown, worn by our new Monarch for the first time in 70 years.
NO LONGER AVAILABLE: Mercury’s Horned Face Silver Proof Coin
This could be your last chance to secure the unique fossilized Silver coin that’s no longer available from the Royal Canadian Mint!
75th Anniversary of VE Day Silver Proof Dollar
As one of Canada’s most sought-after annual releases, this is your second chance to secure the 75th anniversary of VE Day Silver Proof Dollar that’s no longer available at The Mint.
2oz Silver Rippling Canadian Flag with Vivid Colour
The prestigious 2oz Silver Proof coin from The Royal Canadian Mint featuring a coloured depiction of the Canadian flag is the first of its kind.
With a bank holiday weekend, star-studded concert, street parties across the nation and sell-out collectibles, the Coronation of King Charles III will be THE royal celebration of a lifetime.
Coin collectors don’t need telling twice how important this event is. The first Coronation for 70 years is going to be massive.
And the evidence of this came just under a week ago.
100 “Mint Masters” Coronation Sets launched at 9am on Wednesday 22 February. Just before 10:40am we saw a complete sell out.
1 set sold EVERY MINUTE until they were all allocated.
Why did it sell out so quickly?
Approved by King Charles III, the sell-out Mint Masters Set features three Silver £5 coins, issued specially for the Coronation.
Each coin depicts a key element of the Coronation. You have the King’s cypher, the Coronation Carriage and the Imperial State Crown.
A Golden Celebration
Unusually, the Mint Masters Set is reverse-plated in 24 Carat Gold, meaning the coins are struck from Fine Silver but feature additional gold plating.
The obverse designs have been left unplated, making the Coronation elements really stand out.
Each coin in the Mint Masters Set features designs from one of the best in the business, a man synonymous with royalty on coinage.
Timothy Noad has worked as a professional calligrapher, illuminator and heraldic artist for over thirty years, acquiring an international reputation for his elegant and meticulous work.
A prolific designer of British coins and medals, Tim is the artist behind five One Pound coins and three Crowns commemorating royal occasions.
In 2022, he achieved the unique distinction of having his designs chosen for three Gold Sovereigns, The Queen’s Golden, Diamond and Platinum Jubilee Medals.
For the Mint Masters Set, he’s designed the Coronation Carriage and Imperial State Crown.
The end result is one of the best-looking sets you’ll see for the Coronation. Sure to be treasured pieces for the lucky 100 collectors that secured them before the quick sell-out.
If you’re interested…
Judging by the speed of the Mint Masters Set sell-out, these won’t be available for long so you’ll have to act fast.
On the 8th September 1981 over 9 million people sat down at their televisions to watch a brand new show called ‘Only Fools and Horses’. Little did we know that this show would one day become one of the top British television programmes of all-time.
Over a total of 10 years, 7 series, 64 episodes and 16 Christmas specials we followed the trials and tribulations of ambitious market trader Derek ‘Del Boy’ Trotter (played by David Jason) and his idealistic younger brother Rodney Trotter (played by Nicholas Lyndhurst) in their attempts to get rich! Supported by a cast of colourful characters including Grandad, Trigger, Boycie and Uncle Albert.
This time next year we’ll be millionaires…
No other TV show has influenced British culture as much. Critically and popularly acclaimed, the series received numerous awards. It was voted Britain’s Best Sitcom in 2004 and in a BBC poll Del Boy was ranked fourth on their list of the 100 Greatest TV Characters.
Its success spawned a successful spin-off series, ‘The Green Green Grass,’ a Sport Relief special episode guest starring David Beckham, and even a musical adaptation of the show was created which launched at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London’s West End!
The final episode in which the Trotters finally became millionaires was watched by 24.3 million viewers and holds the record for the highest UK audience for a sitcom episode.
So to celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of Britain’s greatest TV shows a number of brand new officially licensed Only Fools and Horses Commemoratives have been released… ‘lovely jubbly’!
