Graded a near perfect Specimen - 69 Early Release by NGC! With a mintage of only 250,000 coins, high popularity, 1/4 oz of .9999-fine Silver, and a $20 face value, these 2012 Farewell to the Penny coins are likely to sell out at the Royal Canadian Mint!
This latest $20 for $20 pays homage to the Canadian one-cent coin. The iconic maple leaf twig design created by G.E. Kruger-Gray that has appeared on all one-cent coins since 1937 (with the exception of a special Centennial one-cent coin released in 1967) takes center stage on the new $20 for $20, but with the added twist of a watery setting.
Artist Jesse Koreck explains his inspiration: "The sign of leaves gently landing on the water reveals the end of a season and the beginning of something new. The one-cent coin and its iconic design that has so long been a familiar symbol to Canadians, is being retired, but not forgotten. We've collected them in our piggy banks when we were young, saved them for a rainy day, and exchanged and shared them between each other throughout our lives."
The coin comes slabbed in an NGC case and tucked in a large and beautifully illustrated Certificate of Authenticity card that tells the story of the Canadian one-cent coin.
