The third coin in our popular 1/2 oz fine silver O Canada 12-coin series!

For more than 130 years, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) force has protected Canadians and enforced Canadian sovereignty. The force not only played a formative role in the history of Canada’s western frontier, but has from its earliest beginnings demonstrated the qualities that make Canada distinct: pragmatism, lawfulness, cooperation. These are the qualities in which all Canadians take pride and, along with the image of the Mountie, are fundamental elements of the image of Canada around the world.

Your coin is the third in our popular 1/2 oz fine silver O Canada 12-coin series, which focuses on iconic Canadian symbols that celebrate Canada. Order your coin today!

Design:
Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Janet Griffin-Scott and features a portrait of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer on horseback. The Red Serge regalia—the RCMP’s formal attire—is presented in exceptional detail. The officer’s Sam Browne belt and white lanyard are visible along with various badges and decorations on her upper right sleeve and lapel. Her broad-brimmed Stetson hat is worn low, and on her legs she wears the Mounties’ traditional riding breeches with their distinctive yellow side stripe. Included in your coin’s design is the special “MP” monogrammed “numnah” or saddle blanket. In the lower third of the background we see the stylized outline of the RCMP’s original territory: the Canadian prairies. A large Canadian flag flows across the central and upper background of the image. Framing the image is a polished outer band engraved with the word “CANADA,” the date “2013” and the face value of “10 DOLLARS,” as well as a small stylized Mountie symbol.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a customized full color beauty box.
