This new coin from the Royal Canadian Mint was designed to capture the Spirit of Canada. These 1/4 oz coins do just that with imagery of the nation’s history, geography and natural beauty that spans from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean.
The obverse side of this coin bears the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which is found on most Canadian coins. The image was designed by Susanna Blunt in 2003 and it includes engravings of her name and the face value of the coin.
The reverse image shows the Canadian flag flying in the breeze. It also shows a couple kids playing hockey on the ice in the foreground. Behind the children, you can see a tractor in a field and a fishing boat in the water. Mountains are visible in the background. The orca whale and polar bear can be seen in the immaculate imagery, as well.
Each of the 2017 1/4 oz Silver Canadian The Spirit of Canada Coins comes in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, with a unique specimen finish. These coins will show no signs of wear and tear, but they may have minor flaws, including spotted surfaces and contact marks for the production process. The specimen finish is the result of double striking the blanks of the numismatic presses. It also gives the coins a shiny relief on top of a matte background.
Founded in 1908 in Ottawa, the Royal Canadian Mint has been producing high-quality coins for more than 100 years. Now, the mint has a second facility in Winnipeg that opened in the 1980s, which helped increase the number of coins the mint can make each year.
