New Issue: RCM unveils November numismatic catalogue

Canadian symbols, cultural icons and historic milestones grace the latest offering of collector coins from the Royal Canadian Mint.

Leading the list is the 70th wedding anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who will be commemorated on a 2017 $20 Fine silver coin entitled “A Platinum Celebration.” Designed by Canadian artist Derek Wicks, the coin features an engraving of the platinum-set bracelet given to Queen Elizabeth II by Prince Philip on their wedding day surrounding the royal couple’s cypher and the dates 1947-2017 on a flowing banner, both of which are rendered in vibrant colour.

The catalogue, which includes 21 new issues, is the Mint’s second last catalogue of 2017.

The selectively gold-plated 2018-dated $10 Fine silver coin ‘SML Tribute to 30 Years’ is also among the Mint’s November releases.


Numismatic milestones also stand out with the selectively gold-plated 2018-dated $10 Fine silver coin, “SML Tribute to 30 Years” and the four-piece 2018 Fine silver Maple Leaf Quartet, both of which celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Mint’s popular Silver Maple Leaf bullion coin.

As well, the one-kilogram 2017 $250 Fine silver coin, “A Tribute to The First Canadian Gold Coin” recaptures the classic coat-of-arms design of Canada’s 1912 gold circulation coin, highlighted in gold plating of the same reddish hue of the original.
