Every coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint tells a story. From coins with symbols depicting the latest monarch to coins with symbols representing common animals of Canada, each coin produced has its own legacy and meaning. For 2017, several coins have been produced that represent the nation in a variety of ways in honour of the Canada 150 celebrations. One such example of a 2017 new coin is the $10 Canada’s 150th Peyto Lake Coin. This coin has a unique story and is a great way in which to celebrate the nation as it turns 150 years old. Learn more about this unique coin below.
Alberta is perhaps one of the most beautiful provinces of Canada. With a varied topography, you can visit different areas of the province and see something new. The forests of the Canadian Shield are magnificent while the open grasslands of the south are something to behold. The most famous topography known to Alberta is the Rocky Mountains and this is where you will find some of the most photographed areas of the nation.
With the Peyto Lake Coin, this is the 11th coin of a 13 coin subscription. The coin is beautiful, featuring a quality image of Peyto Lake as taken by Canadian Geographic. The unique 13 coin subscription set was actually created via a partnership of Canadian Geographic and the Royal Canadian Mint. As Canada is celebrating their 150th year in existence, this set is the perfect way to travel throughout the nation and see the many landmarks and historical areas that make the country great.
The image on the coin is stunningly beautiful and located just underneath the date 1867-2017 and the word Canada. The 99.99% pure silver coin has the images of the mountains in full colour with the crystal blue waters of Peyto Lake in full colour. From the sky to the tree lines, the colour is amazing and shows the true beauty of Alberta.
Only 25,000 of these coins were minted each with a matte proof finish and weight of 15.87, with a diameter of 33mm. The coins are serrated and have a face value of $10, with each coin being serialized for authentication.
When you receive your Peyto Lake coin, you will be mesmerized by the image on the reverse side. The photo depicts the mountain landscape found by Banff National Park with a viewpoint as seen when visiting the Bow Summit Lookout. You can view the beautiful valley below with sunlight visibly shining through the clouds for a colourful glow on the Peyto Lake.
