This 1972 proof-like set includes all six denominations from the cent through to the dollar. The coins are specially struck for collectors using highly polished dies and slow moving coin presses. The result is that the coins have a near perfect mirror finish which is significantly different from the coins struck for circulation.
The dollar design features a Native Canadian and a Voyageur (a travelling agent for a fur company), paddling a canoe past a small island with two wind swept trees. The vertical lines in the background represent the northern lights. A major alteration to the dollar was made in 1977. The size of the device was reduced and the legend was in small lettering. This modified design was not retained for future dates, making the 1977 coins a unique issue.
A fifty cent coin is also included featuring the Canadian Coat-of-arms. This coin saw very limited circulation and was produced in small quantities in comparison to other denominations.
This complete high quality coin set comes presented in a custom mahogany finish display case.
