Winter may have the most popular Canadian sports, but summer is the prime season in Canada. Coin collecting is a great way to celebrate what you enjoy most about the summer months. Start a themed coin collection or give a gift that commemorates a special experience to someone you love by choosing one of these stunning coins that focus on what’s great about Canada.
2010 Canada $20 Maple Leaf Crystal Raindrop
The maple leaf is probably the most recognizable symbol of Canada. This $20 coin made of fine silver is a unique rendition of the leaf, in bright green to highlight the summer season, with a small crystal Swarovski raindrop to highlight the leaf. The coin comes encapsulated in a maroon clamshell case, which protects it from fingerprints, dust and grime to keep it in mint condition. As with every Canadian coin, Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse.
2014 25-Cent Ducks of Canada
Harlequin ducks are some of the most colourful birds in Canada. They are considered endangered on the Atlantic coast. If you ever spot a harlequin duck, consider yourself blessed, because they are relatively rare birds. Canadian artist Trevor Tennant designed this 25-cent coin that is part of a series featuring Canadian ducks. The highly decorated male takes center stage on the coin with the female in contrast to his colours. It’s a beautiful way to showcase a love of birdwatching and coin collecting.
2015 $30 Moonlight Fireflies
Camping and canoeing are just two of the best ways to enjoy nature in Canada through the summer. This $30-coin features magical fireflies lighting up the camping station in Canada’s wilderness. Made of 99.99% pure silver, this coin has rich colours and beautiful details to commemorate an ordinary camping experience in a stunning way. Give it as a gift or keep it for yourself to remember how much you enjoy being one with nature.
2016 Canadian Salmonids $20 Fine Silver 3-Coin Set
People from around the world come to Canada to enjoy salmon fishing. These 3 coins, each $20, made of fine silver, feature 3 of Canada’s best varieties of salmon, the Atlantic Salmon, Arctic Char and Sockeye Salmon. The salmon on the coins stand out in full colour, making them a great representation of fishing. Canadian artist Curtis Atwater designed the stunning coins that make you think the salmon may actually leap off the coin into your living room. These coins will commemorate a once-in-a-lifetime fishing experience or an annual trip that is a thing of memories.
2018 Canada $20 Maple Tree Tunnel
So often the maple tree is rendered in autumn colours, but this $20-coin features a row of maple trees in summer splendour. When viewed under a blacklight, the trees transform into the fall colours that make maples so captivating. These colours never fade, so you can enjoy the beauty of the maple year round. This coin makes a stunning gift for a gardener or anyone who appreciates nature.
