Product Details
This token set from the RCM features some never-before-seen minting technology developed at the Mint’s R&D facility, where six test specimens helped give shape to the coins of tomorrow.

This token set offers you an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the latest from our R&D facility in Winnipeg. All six tokens were used to develop new innovations, including the experimental MC4 that combines four different components: an outer ring, a polymer or metal separator and an inner core featuring two different alloys. Designed for maximum impact, the patented MC4 represents a bold step forward in the evolution of circulation coins; and with the addition of multi-security features, the MC4 is as visually appealing as it is secure.

Set Highlights:
  • Contains 6 different coins, each varying in size composed of nickel, steel, brass or bronze.
  • Sealed in Mylar to allow an unobstructed view of both sides, your six tokens are enclosed in an envelope and accompanied by a tent card insert with specifications, as well as a special note from the Chief Technology Officer at the Royal Canadian Mint.
  • Obverse: Features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
  • Reverse: Designs vary.

The first three tokens in this set offer you a first look at the new MC4 (Multi-Component Composite Circulation Coin); each one features interrupted serrations on its edge and multi-security features (visible and hidden microtext, latent images, positive and negative embossing) on its reverse.

Token 1: This MC4 experimental prototype combines a nickel-plated steel outer ring with a clear (transparent) polymer separator, a nickel-plated steel reverse and a copper-plated steel obverse.

Token 2: Your second MC4 prototype features a nickel-plated steel outer ring, a black (opaque) polymer separator, a copper-plated steel reverse and a brass-plated steel obverse.

Token 3: The third MC4 prototype features a bronze-plated steel outer ring, a white (opaque) polymer separator, a brass-plated steel reverse and a copper-plated steel obverse.

Token 4: This token also features interrupted serrations and the same multi-security features as the MC4, but in a bronze-plated steel mono-component token.

Token 5: A copper-plated steel mono-component version of Token 4.

Token 6: Made of nickel-plated steel, the last mono-component token in your set marks the starting point—it was the base model used to test and calibrate the presses.
