Product Details
A look back at the birth of the Toonie! This anniversary set features a 99.99% pure silver recreation of the $2 coin that made its debut on February 19, 1996—the same day Canada ceased to issue $2 bills, like the one featured here.

Sealed in its own capsule, the uncirculated $2 bank note in this set is from the Bank of Canada’s 1986 Birds of Canada series and represents the last of its kind—in fact, this one is a rare BRX replacement bank note that has been locked in the vault for 25 years. As for the fine Silver coin, it is selectively Gold-plated to resemble the beloved bi-metallic circulation piece, which quickly became a fixture in the everyday lives of Canadians.

Set Highlights:

  • Contains 1 oz .9999 fine Silver.
  • The perfect pairing, the $2 coin and bank note are individually encapsulated and presented side by side in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
  • Obverse: Features the classic effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Dora de Pédery-Hunt, while the double dates “1996-2021” commemorate the 25th anniversary of Canada’s $2 circulation coin.
  • Reverse: A recreation of the first $2 coin issued in 1996 originally designed by Canadian artist Brent Townsend features an adult polar bear in early summer, standing on an ice floe. The image portion is plated with Gold to mimic the distinctive appearance of the bi-metallic circulation coin.
