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.
