Canada's All-New "Silver Loonie"
Hot off the press!
With everyone focused on Montreal's 375th and Canada's 150th birthday, there is another birthday that Canadians will get the chance to celebrate; the loonie's 30th anniversary is right around the corner.
For this special date, the Royal Canadian Mint is releasing a limited edition 2-coin set made of pure silver, replacing the usual brass-plated steel. The first coin is the classic one that has had the same design since it was introduced, with the famous loon on one side and Queen Elizabeth on the other.
The second coin in this collection is actually the design that was originally on the old silver dollar, representing a fur tradesman as a nod to the country's past.
