Coin of the Year Awards

The Mint is a standout in the running for Krause Publications’ annual Coin of the Year Awards, after it received eight nominations for the 2010 awards to be announced next January at the 2010 World Money Fair in Berlin. This is the most nominations to be earned by any mint recognized by Krause for its 2008 numismatic achievements.

The Mint is also delighted that the two nominations received by Panama (for the commemorative Children’s Hospital Quarter Balboa and the Breast Cancer Awareness Quarter Balboa) represent coins engraved and produced by the Mint following the successful contract bid of our Foreign Business Team.

Our nominations are as follows:

Most Historic Coin
$15 Silver Playing Card Money - Queen of Spades

Best Gold
$300 Gold Summer Moon Mask

Best Silver Coin
Special Edition Silver Dollar - Royal Canadian Mint Centennial

Best Trade Coin
25-Cent Poppy Circulation Coin

Most Popular
25-Cent Anne of Green Gables

Most Artistic Coin
$15 Silver Effigies of Royalty - Edward VII

Most Innovative

We celebrated a century of achievement in 2008 and today, we can take great pride in knowing that so many of the collector and circulation coins we produced were worthy of early recognition by the prestigious Coin of the Year Awards. It is very gratifying that the best mint in the world garnered the most nominations for the excellence and significance of our coins.
