The British Royal Family toured Canada from September 24 to October 1, 2016. Since the family has always held a special place in the hearts of many, the Royal Canadian Mint decided to make a special coin to celebrate the visit.
The photo on the reverse of the coin was taken by Chris Jelf. In the photo, you can see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The stunning photograph shows the beginning of fall with the vibrant yellow and orange tree in the background.
As usual, the obverse of the 2016 1 oz Proof Silver Canadian Royal Tour Coin features the image of Queen Elizabeth II in a right-profile design. As the matriarch of the Royal Family, Queen Elizabeth is one of the most well-known, and beloved, members of the Royal Family. Queen Elizabeth has been the queen since 1952, when her father, King George VI died.
The 2016 1 oz Proof Silver Canadian Royal Tour Coin is the first ever coin from the Royal Canadian Mint to feature an entire branch of the Royal Family. The image was put on the coin with a cutting-edge color application, which allowed for the image to keep its realistic look.
These coins were struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, which was founded in 1908. The RCM is the sovereign mint of Canada, and it has facilities in Ottawa and Winnipeg.
