The First Collaboration
This first-ever collaboration between two of the world's most popular mints resulted in the 2019 Pride of Two Nations Limited Edition Two-Coin Set, showcasing each country's most iconic Silver coin – the Silver Eagle and the Silver Maple Leaf. With only 100,000 released by the U.S. Mint and just 10,000 released by the Royal Canadian Mint, these are sure to sell quickly around the world.
The special Silver Eagle included in this set comes in an enhanced reverse proof finish for the first time ever. Different from a normal reverse proof finish, this coin features a frosted background but the different design elements have different polished and frosted finishes. Just 110,000 total sets are being released by both mints, giving this Silver Eagle one of the lowest mintages of the entire series, lower than that of the extremely popular 2017-S Proof Silver Eagle.
Brilliant Maple Leafs
Similarly, the Silver Maple Leaf comes in a modified proof finish. On a normal proof coin, the image and inscriptions appear frosted against a beautifully mirrored background. However, with this first-ever modified proof Silver Maple Leaf, the inscriptions also feature a brilliant shine. While the obverse and reverse both feature the now-common radial lines, you will also see a series of small maple leaves and small stars surrounding the edge of each side, representing the partnership of Canada and the U.S. on these sets.
U.S. Mint Sets
The U.S. Mint is releasing just 100,000 of these sets, with a limited number graded by PCGS. The special First Day of Issue label, featuring an APMEXclusive® label of the U.S. and Canadian flags, highlights sets that were among the first shipped from the U.S. Mint. While only an exclusive number of sets will feature the First Day of Issue label, all additional graded sets offer the PCGS First Strike label. Both coins in these U.S. Mint sets also call out the special finish, grade and the coin's origin from the United States Mint.Shop Now
Royal Canadian Mint Sets
The Royal Canadian Mint is issuing only 10,000 sets, making each one highly coveted. A special First Day of Issue label from PCGS features the crossed flags of both Canada and the United States, highlighting the spirit of the collaborative set. This same label design, produced exclusively for APMEX, appears on the Royal Canadian Mint's First Strike sets as well. Each label specifies the unique finish, grade and origin of the coin. With such a small mintage, these Royal Canadian Mint sets are sure to sell fast.Shop Now
