The perfect gift to start a life-long adventure of coin collecting! Order your set today!

Special features:
  • Includes the rare 50-cent coin featuring Canada's Coat of Arms!
  • Unique packaging that holds the coin and the certificate in the same place.
  • These uncirculated coins have been carefully selected to provide you with the best examples of their kind.
  • Perfect gift to mark any 2016 event such as a birth, a wedding, an anniversary, or as a great souvenir to those travelling to Canada.
  • Fits perfectly into the uncirculated collector binder!

Polar Bear: 
Canada's bimetallic two-dollar coin, launched in 1996, features a polar bear, one of the world's largest terrestrial carnivores which can weigh up to 650 kilograms. It lives near the cold seas and frozen ice of Canada's far-north. 

Common Loon: 
Launched in 1987, the reverse of the one-dollar coin represents a common loon swimming against the rugged backdrop of the Canadian Shield. The loon's haunting calls are one the quintessential sound of the Canadian wilderness in summer. 

Canada's Coat of Arms: 

The Canadian Coat of Arms, proclaimed in 1921 and modified in 1996, reminds Canadians of our diverse heritage. It features images from France (the fleur-de-lis), England (the three royal lions and rose), Scotland (a lion and thistle) and Ireland (the Irish harp and shamrock). 

Caribou: 
An enduring symbol of the Canadian north, the majestically-antlered caribou has remained a Canadian icon since first appearing on the twenty-five-cent piece in 1937.

Bluenose: 
In 1921, Atlantic Canadians built one of the finest racing and fishing vessels in Canadian history, the Bluenose. Known for its speed, and almost unbeatable in a race, the ship first appeared on the ten-cent piece in 1937. 

Beaver: 
The beaver is Canada's national animal. Highly sought after for its rich fur in the 17th and
18th centuries, it was the mainstay of the colonial economy for centuries. Today, the beaver is revered as a symbol of hard work and perseverance.

Packaging:
Your 2016 Uncirculated Set coins are sealed inside a transparent film and presented in a colourful specifications card!

I found the shipping far too slow. While I was waiting not only for this coin set but the rest of my order 3 months from time of order, I ended up ordering more coins from the post office and received them within 2 weeks.

What happened to the uncirculated sets that came in a case of sealed plastic that slipped in a sleeve box. usually more expensive. the rest of my collection is like this

wayne

Hi Wayne, I believe you're referring to our Proof and Specimen Set's that house the coins in a hard plastic case. These are annual favourites which we will continue to produce. Here are 2016's sets: http://www.mint.ca/store/coins/pure-silver-proof-set-%E2%80%93-150th-anniversary-of-the-transatlantic-cable-2016-prod2601158 http://www.mint.ca/store/coins/special-edition-silver-dollar-proof-set-%E2%80%93-150th-anniversary-of-the-transatlantic-cable-2016-prod2660020 http://www.mint.ca/store/coins/specimen-set-%E2%80%93-tundra-swan-2016-prod2610017

Was the $1 loon coin distributed for circulation? I've only seen the two commemoratives in my change. Is this set the only way to get an (Un)circulated one?

Riddler

Hey there Riddler! Yes, the 2016 $1 Loon coin was distributed for circulation as it is a standard "Loonie" that you can find in your change and not a commemorative coin like the 2016 Lucky Loonie or the 2016 Women's Right to Vote $1 commemorative coin. In terms of getting an Uncirculated 2016 $1 Loon coin, this is one of the ways, as is getting the coin in one of our 2016 Gift Sets. -Dave

Dave (Product Team)

Does this come in a box like the other sets I have?

Vicky

Hi Vicky, If by "box" you mean the colourful Canadian theme folder that holds the coins in their packaging and folds out to display the coin specifications table, then yes, it does! -dave

Dave (Product Team)

Why is the 50 cent piece rare????? Low mintage????

Barery

Hi Barery, The rarity of the 50 cent piece comes from the fact that we no longer mint 50 cent coins for regular circulation. Therefore, the *only* place you can obtain 1 of 60,000 uncirculated 50 cent 2016 coins is this 2016 Uncirculated Set.

Dave (Product Team)

You can also purchase a roll of 50 cent coins from the RCM so this is not the only source.

crazy for coins

Do you sell any uncirculated sets (like the Canada 2016) from previous years? This set includes the nickel, dime, quarter, 50 cent piece, $1 and $2 coins

dubob

Sorry, we do not.

Anonymous

Why is it that the set does not include all three of the 2016 dollar coins, the regular loon, the lucky loon, and the women's commemorative?

bobber

Hi bobber, Only our Special Edition Uncirculated Sets include all the commemorative coins for that year. Here is 2015's Special Edition Uncirculated Set for example: http://www.mint.ca/store/coins/2015-special-edition-uncirculated-set-prod253034 Our yearly Uncirculated Sets only contain all our standard circulation coins plus our rare 50c coin for that year.

Dave (Product Team)

Is it possible to get uncirculated sets from 2008 to 2016?

Ace

Hi Ace, We stop selling products after one year, but you can usually find older products at any of our authorized coin dealers. Here's the link to our dealer locator page; http://www.mint.ca/store/mint/customer-service/dealer-locator-1400026?cat=Dealer+locator&nId=1400026&nodeGroup=Customer+Service

Where is the Certificate of Authenticity located? Is it in the sleeve or is it the Specifications? I don't seem to locate it. Thanks.

John

John, Our Uncirculated Set folders do not come with a separate "Certificate of Authenticity". The folder itself is serialized and contains a "Specifications" table printed into the fold of the packaging along with the mintage, which serves to certify the authenticity of the set. Thanks for the question!
