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!

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

                        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.

                      This set includes the nickel, dime, quarter, 50 cent piece, $1 and $2 coins

                        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.

                        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!

                      Why should this set cost so much! Is there any reason to cost the set more than $3.90? However, considering the overhead cost it may at best be $5.00 or so.

                        Because the RCM wants to make $$. Other than being uncirculated, they are regular business strike coins and should not cost more than $5...

                        A:

                        Thanks for your question. You are correct, in that this set is exactly like regular circulation coins, but these coins have a value beyond their face value. The key difference between this set and coins in your pocket, is that these coins have never been in circulation. For this reason these sets often sell out as collectors seek out pristine coins. The coins truly are "mint" condition.
