The world was saddened by the passing Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, 2022. The beloved monarch had faithfully served as the head of state for Great Britain and the British Commonwealth for more than 70 years. As is customary upon the passing of a monarch, new effigies for coins would be made, replacing the Queen's portrait with that of her son, King Charles III. But that didn't happen on these coins! One of the few 2023-dated coins to hold the late Queen's effigy, the 2023 Canadian Peace Dollar was already in production when the news came that Elizabeth II has passed away.If production had begun even a few days later, it is very likely the Royal Canadian Mint would have postponed production until a new effigy featuring Charles III was available for use on the coin's obverse! Each coin comes packaged in a black clamshell box along with a certificate of authenticity. Limited mintage of 1,250 coins. Obverse: The obverse features a lasered (non-pulsating) magnified view of the reverse's field pattern behind the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Reverse: The beautiful Susan Taylor design on the coin's reverse features the female allegorical figure of "Peace" just as she appeared on the 2019 Peace & Liberty Medal. Her hair is crowned in a wreath of maple leaves and olive branches to symbolize the core Canadian values of peace, order, and good government. It's also enhanced by state-of-the-art technology that makes use of literally hundreds of micro-engineered, precision-engraved, sub-millimeter-scale surfaces struck into its fields to provide a stunning "pulsating" effect when the coin is rotated. In addition to the micro-engineered technology, this coin also benefits from stunning Ultra High Relief details that tower above the surface of the coin.Guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint.
