The Royal Canadian Mint opened in 1908 and has established itself as a leader in the precious metals industry. Gold Canadian Commemorative coins are produced regularly with limited mintage figures and one-of-a-kind designs the mint doesn’t use on larger programs or even repeat again in the future.
The RCM’s history of innovation includes the production of the first 5 oz .9999 fine silver coin, the first colorized coin produced using plasma technology, and the first irregular-shaped (square) coin. In this unique listing from Silver.com, you can purchase 1/2 oz Gold Canadian Commemorative Coins from random years and programs.

On the obverse of all 1/2 oz Gold Canadian Commemoratives, you’ll find the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured in right-profile relief on all Gold Canadian Coins, though her portrait has been updated at times.
