Celebrate birthdays with the gift of money, including a one-year-only quarter unique to this set, new this year and designed by artist Gary Taxali! This festive Birthday Card Gift Set marks that special day with real class, and it sure beats a regular greeting card! It includes a one-year-only birthday cupcake with balloons quarter, found only in this set. Both sides of the coins are visible though the protective blister pack that preserve them for future memory. What's more, there's even space inside for your personalized dedication! Sure to evoke fond memories for years to come, the Happy Birthday Gift Set includes six different examples of the circulating denominations of Canada, each of which features a design of national importance, including:
- One Cent Maple Leaf Penny
- Five Cent Beaver Nickel
- Ten Cent Bluenose Schooner Dime
- Twenty-Five Cent Birthday Cupcake & Balloons Quarter
- One Dollar Common Loon, or "Loonie"
- Two Dollar Bi-Metallic Polar Bear, or "Toonie"
All are specially-struck and hand-picked for these high-quality sets. Each coin has a Prooflike finish and includes the brand-new mint mark on the queen side! Additionally, instead of a standard caribou quarter, the Happy Birthday Gift Set includes a quarter found only in this set (and not released into circulation). This special quarter features a whimsical birthday cupcake carried away by a bundle of balloons. The reverse of each coin features Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, in profile facing right. This portrait, the fourth likeness of the queen to appear on Canadian coinage, was executed by the artist Susanna Blunt.
