Mint Talk

We believe that collecting coins can fill a lifetime with interest and inspiration. What begins as a pastime can easily become an absorbing pursuit - indeed, a passion.

Inspiration for your holiday gift-giving

Inspiration for your holiday gift-giving

With the holidays approaching, it’s time to start looking for great gift ideas. And if you want to give something special that transforms “thoughtful” into “unforgettable”, a carefully chosen coin can be just the ticket. For Masters Club member Pierre-Pascal and Royal Canadian Mint Account Manager Ronald Jean, coins from the Mint are not just unique gifts that can be treasured and passed down through generations—they can even inspire someone to start a collection of their own!

Lighting the way with glowing hearts—and coins

Lighting the way with glowing hearts—and coins

Some things never lose their cool factor. Ever since the first consumer glow sticks were waved in the air at a Grateful Dead show in 1971, glow-in-the-dark technology has never lost its... well, shine. The Royal Canadian Mint has been a pioneer in bringing glow-in-the-dark effects to a wide range of coins, most recently with the 2018 $5 pure silver Hearts Aglow tribute to Canada’s multicultural makeup.

PAINTING WITH LIGHT AND METAL

PAINTING WITH LIGHT AND METAL

The power of light and metal… A painter’s mastery lies in the constant study of colour and light, lines and form. Whether their style is classic realism, abstract modernism, or somewhere in between, every painter will tell you their brushes are the channel that brings their vision from the ethers of inspiration to the tangible canvas of this three-dimensional world.

THE SINKING OF THE SS PRINCESS SOPHIA

The historic Canadian tragedy you’ve probably never heard of. The sky is dark, and the waves darker. A blinding snowstorm renders the deadly reef invisible until it’s too late. The moment of impact is depicted dramatically on the new pure silver coin from the Royal Canadian Mint — when a steamer ran aground on the Vanderbilt Reef and sank in late October of 1918, taking the lives of all 350 passengers.

Honouring the fallen, celebrating peace

The First World War and the peace that followed it had a profound impact on Canada as a nation. In 2018, the Royal Canadian Mint commemorates the 100th anniversary of the moment the conflict ended—the Armistice—with collectibles and a new $2 circulation coin Canadians can look for in their change.

On the 100th Anniversary of the 1918 Armistice, two coins pay tribute with unprecedented, powerful designs. A feat of engineering to mark the end of the First World War.

FROM COMIC BOOK TO COIN.

A quick fly-by how a coin is made. BAM! The idea. It was 2012, and the 75th anniversary of the first Action Comics #1 featuring Superman was coming up the following year. Jamie Desrochers, an avid comic book collector in his own right, jumped at the enviable task of creating Superman commemorative coins.
