All coins in your Premium Proof Set exhibit the highest quality finish (Proof) produced by the Royal Canadian Mint:
• Hand Polished! The field (flat background) has a highly hand polished mirror-like finish
• Four finishes! The relief (raised foreground) incorporates the use of four (4) different finishes which beautifully accentuate the design
• The dies used to strike your coins have been polished with a mixture containing diamond powder to ensure that the exquisite details are maintained on the coins during striking
• To maintain the highest quality in your set, only 1000-3000 coins have been struck per die
• Individually Pressed! Each of your coins will have been individually and delicately hand fed into and out of the coining press
• Hi-Def! All your coins will have been double struck at lower striking speeds, to give high definition and contrast between the field and the relief

About the Design:
