Royal Canadian Mint reinvents the coin

Layout 1 (V)

Breaking the mold to prove there can be more than two sides to a coin, the Royal Canadian Mint reinvents the coin and has proudly created a collectible in the three-dimensional shape of a real cut diamond.  The 2020 $50 Fine Silver Diamond Shaped Coin – Forevermark© Diamond is crafted from three ounces of 99.99% pure silver and is adorned by a 0.20-carat diamond from Northern Ontario’s Victor Mine. The Mint’s R&D team overcame many challenges to flawlessly strike this dramatically contoured coin and produce a luxury collectible that is also a unique engineering feat.  This extraordinary creation, along with many other finely crafted collectibles, is available to the public as of today.

Royal Canadian Mint reinvents the coin and other coins launching in March include:   

  • The 2020 $20 Fine Silver Coin – Mother Earth: Home, a Jamie Desrochers designed coin featuring a coloured view of Earth from the silvery surface of the moon, with black light technology that intensifies the Milky Way illustrated in the background;
