Canada's circulation coins are a part of our everyday lives and collectors have come to know every design element and variation. But what if these familiar images only told part of the story?
The successor to the Royal Canadian Mint's popular Big Coin series, The Bigger Picture zooms in on Canada's circulation coins and zooms out to reveal there's a lot more story to discover! Like a coin within a coin, each circulation design is re-created on a larger 5 oz. Fine silver piece that provides an extended canvas for the engraved-only art.
The Bigger Picture series features the following six coins. Coin #1: Bluenose Coin #2: Beaver Coin #3: Caribou Coin #4: Coat of Arms Coin #5: Loon Coin #6: Polar Bear. Each of these coins is crafted from five ounces of the world's finest silver (99.99% pure). That high silver content gives each coin a diameter of 65.25 mm and a metal weight of 157.6 g - the same as our popular Big Coin series - and that provides ample room for complex engraving and captivating designs.
An exciting collecting opportunity for those who love Canada's circulation coins with a limited mintage. Only 1,300 coins are available worldwide. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. GOLD PLATING ON COIN 5 AND 6.
Selective gold plating adds a dazzling gleam to our finely engraved homage to the Loon and Polar Bear coins. It's an upscale feature that mimics the look of the old-time favourite circulation coin designs. Bluenose' is an official mark adopted and used by the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage pursuant to the Trademarks Act (Canada).
