Design:
The one-dollar coin in the 2015 Specimen Set of Canadian coins features a blue jay perched on a tree branch enjoying a beautiful sunny day in a natural setting. Viewed from the rear, its distinctive spotted plumage along its wings and broad tail are prominently displayed. Always inquisitive, the blue jay has its head turned to the right, which affords the viewer a glimpse of its facial features and distinctive crest atop the blue jay's head.

Packaging:
Your specimen set comes in book-style packaging with removable lens and a serialized certificate. It also includes a CD lens concept with maroon outer cover and black beauty box.

I love to collect silver coins, but when I saw this, I had to have it. When I got it, I knew I made the right decision. It is in a very nice case, with plexiglass on both sides to protect the coins, and it is in a handsome "book" style case with felt on the inside of the covers. I love it.

Is the mint going to make a specimen set for 2016?

liljoe

Hi liljoe, The Royal Canadian Mint typically releases a specimen set annually, usually within the first few months of each year. I am not permitted to disclose exactly when it will be released or what the theme is, so I recommend you sign up to receive emails from us. You may do so by entering your email address on Mint.ca (email sign-up box is at the top of most pages).

Chad

Are there commemorative coins from the year 1965 available?

Alan

Coins from 1965 may be available from official dealers. They are not available from the Royal Canadian Mint. Please check our dealer finder for a dealer near you: http://www.mint.ca/store/mint/customer-service/dealer-locator-1400026
