For added historical accuracy, each reverse design is paired with its original obverse! Order today!

The story of Canada’s 10-cent coin is in part the story of the Royal Canadian Mint. Time after time, history has left its imprint on this beloved coin—from unusual strikes to commemorative issues.

This five-coin set is a retrospective look at the designs that have adorned our smallest-sized circulation coin. Paired with the original obverse, each selectively gold-plated coin is crafted from pure silver and measures at least twice the original size—especially the larger-sized two-ounce coins, which both bear the mark of a world event that forever changed the face of Canada’s dime.

Your Legacy of the Dime five-coin set traces Canada’s 10-cent coin’s rich history! Order today!

Special features:
  • A SWEEPING RETROSPECTIVE! Your five-coin Legacy of the Dime series traces the history and evolution of Canada’s 10-cent circulation coins issued by the Royal Canadian Mint.
  • A MODERN TRIBUTE TO PIECES OF HISTORY! All five reverse designs are beautifully re-created here in 99.99% pure silver—including two 2 oz. replicas of 10-cent coins that came to be amid unusual circumstances.
  • A TOUCH OF GOLD! Selective gold plating stands out against the mirror-like proof finish, and highlights the engraved relief on both the reverse and the obverse.
  • TWO SIDES OF THE STORY! For added historical accuracy, each reverse design is paired with its original obverse.
  • LARGER-THAN-LIFE! Each coin in this set is at least twice the size of the original issue. Brought to life on a larger scale than ever (38 mm and 54 mm diameters), every detail in these engraved designs catches the eye and brings renewed appreciation for these familiar images.
  • HISTORIC ART, MODERN-DAY CRAFTSMANSHIP! While the iconic art is unchanged (save for the updated year), each design is enhanced by the use of modern finishes that further highlight the sculpted elements.
  • TOGETHER IN ONE SET! Packaged side-by-side in an elegant case, your five coins touch on several key moments in the history of the Royal Canadian Mint. It’s an exquisite addition to any history-themed and circulation coin collection!
  • LOW MINTAGE! Your coin set is limited to a mintage of just 3,000 coins worldwide.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER! Your five coins are designed in 99.99% pure silver!
  • GST/HST EXEMPT! Your 5-coin set is GST/HST exempt!

Design:

The five coins in your set are all crafted in 99.99% pure silver and feature Canada’s 10-cent circulation coin designs. The 1936 Dot and the 1947 Maple Leaf 10-Cent coins have a diameter of 54 millimetres and a weight of 62.67 grams; the 1967 Centennial, the 2001 Year of the Volunteer and the 2017 Wings of Peace 10-Cent coins have a diameter of 38 millimetres and a weight of 31.39 grams. Selective gold plating highlights the relief on the reverse and obverse, which features the effigy of King George V, King George VI or Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as they appeared on the original coins.

Reproduced as a 2 oz. pure silver coin, the exceptionally rare 1936 Dot 10-Cent coin features W. H. J. Blakemore’s modified version of an original design by L.C. Wyon. Topped by St. Edward’s Crown, the crossed maple bough is a fixture on all Canadian 10-cent coins issued between 1858 and 1936. A small dot beneath the tied ribbon is the identifying mark of a coin struck with the old obverse during the transition from the reign of King George V to King George VI. The obverse features the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. Mackennal.

Also reproduced as a 2 oz. pure silver coin is the 1947 Maple Leaf 10-Cent coin. The reverse features Emanuel Hahn’s depiction of the famous Nova Scotia schooner, Bluenose, under sail. On the obverse, the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget includes the Royal Title GEORGIVS VI D:G:REX ET IND:IMP, which became outdated once India gained its independence on August 15, 1947. Included in this modern-day tribute is the small maple leaf that was added next to the year, to denote coins struck with the old obverse while the Royal Canadian Mint awaited new master tooling.

The 1 oz. pure silver version of the 1967 Centennial 10-Cent coin features the beloved reverse design by Alex Colville. Designed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Confederation, the image of a mackerel pays tribute to Canada’s coast and represents the idea of continuity. Instead of the denticles seen on the 2 oz. coins, round beads encircle the reverse and obverse, which features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin.

As created by Royal Canadian Mint engravers, the reverse of the 2001 Year of the Volunteer 10-Cent coin is brought to life once more in 1 oz. pure silver. A curving legend “YEAR OF VOLUNTEERS  ANNÉE DES BÉNÉVOLES” separates the side-profile view of marching mothers and the sun below, whose rays symbolize a volunteer’s enlightening effect on their community. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Dora de Pédery-Hunt.

The 2017 Wings of Peace is the most recent commemorative issue of the 10-cent coin. As part of theMy Canada, My Inspiration collection commemorating CANADA 150, it features a reverse design by Amy Choi of Calgary, Alta., and highlights Canada’s reputation as a peacekeeping nation. Instead of a traditional olive branch, the stylized dove clutches a maple leaf that stands as a symbol of hope, peace and good faith. The obverse features the CANADA 150 logo and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Canada’s first decimal coins were introduced in 1858. Re-created on our tribute to the 1936 Dot 10-Cent coin, the crossed maple boughs design appeared that year on Canada’s 10-cent, and from 1870 to 1936, on 25-cent and 50-cent coins as well.
  • When new circulation designs were proposed in 1936, a mountain goat was among the ideas considered for the 10-cent coin! Ultimately, the decision was made to feature Emanuel Hahn’s now-famous depiction of the Bluenose schooner, but the face value was originally intended to take up two lines (“10” above “CENTS”); in the end, the face value was engraved as a single line, as it appears today.
  • A small maple leaf can also be seen on some coins struck during a limited production run in 1948, before the arrival of new tooling for the obverse.
  • Unveiled by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, the 2001 Year of the Volunteer coin holds special significance for us: it was created by Royal Canadian Mint engravers, some of whom are still with us today!

Extremely disappointed

1

The display cases my coins (2 sets) come in, both are extremely rough to the touch and the lids are warped, and lack the luster and appearance of quality they should have had. Not at all like the typical display cases I have received from the Mint with coin sets. Again, I am EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY disappointed with these cases.

Beautiful coins but what's up with this case?

The coins are beautiful but the case is not up to the quality standards I expect from the mint. The picture shows a nice red, heavy wood case but what came was a light, black, paper like case that belongs with a $20 Set not a $700 set. The mint really dropped the ball on this one.
