Design:
The engraved image features a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police on horseback.

The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

"This coin kicks off a great new series that focuses on big Canadian moments, and it begins with a celebration of the RCMP – a truly Canadian icon! This is a must-have series for your collection." Erica Maga, Product Manager, Royal Canadian Mint

"As an artist, I love re-constructing and adapting classic designs to bring them into the present. The original sculpted model was slightly outdated so instead of re-creating it, I enhanced its elements. Notice how the horse anatomy is more prominent; the staff is also straighter, the hands and gloves are more accurate, the reins are more detailed and the officer's facial features are sharper." Alex Tirabasso, Engraver/3D Artist, Royal Canadian Mint

Did you know…
  • The Stetson hat is a famous element of the RCMP uniform, and they're all crafted in Guelph, Ontario. How can you tell if it's a real RCMP hat? Look inside – it should include a stamped "RCMP-GRC" and a contract date as proof of authenticity.
  • The RCMP Musical Ride is a full troop of 32 uniformed riders (as well as the member in charge) that famously performs choreographed cavalry drills to music. Its origins can be traced back to the early days of the North West Mounted Police, when members would entertain themselves in-between drills by competing and performing tricks.
  • In 1919, legislation was passed to merge the Dominion Police (a small federal force created in 1868) and the Royal North West Mounted Police (a frontier force created in 1873). On February 1, 1920, Canada's newly merged police force was named the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
