You’ll find two different versions of the $2 commemorative coin in this seven-piece keepsake set: a selectively colored piece and a non-colored version. Packaged alongside five other denominations issued in 2021, these uncirculated circulation coins come ready to view and display in a keepsake collector card that celebrates a Canadian medical breakthrough.
- Contains 7 different coins, each varying in size composed of nickel, steel, brass or bronze.
- Certificate and all six coins are enclosed together in the graphic packaging, which fits perfectly in your uncirculated collector binder.
- Obverse: Features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
- Reverse: Designed by Canadian artist Jesse Koreck, the reverse is double dated (“1921 2021”) to commemorate the 100th anniversary of a Canadian medical innovation. The discovery of insulin at the University of Toronto is represented by a maple leaf and traditional symbols: an early insulin vial, an Erlenmeyer flask, a mortar and pestle. The inner core shows insulin in monomeric form, which is highlighted in blue on selectively colored coins, while the depiction of the hormone at work in the bloodstream extends onto the outer ring.
