The Royal Canadian Mint is an institution that has certainly done its share of supplying domestic and world collectors with exquisite and beautiful specimens for their collections. However, one demographic that has traditionally not been as interested in coins are youngsters. That is why this year the Mint offers several masterfully crafted editions of coins that are guaranteed to appeal to the youngest population.
Coin collecting has traditionally been a hobby reserved for adult connoisseurs. That is not the case anymore. The Royal Canadian Mint now caters to children as well, as a number of special edition coins are available for the youngest of collectors or the young at heart. Some are available for order online, others can be obtained through monthly subscriptions, but that’s not the best part. Each of these unique coins boasts different themes, designs, and features. Examples include:
- The Pure Silver Coloured Coin – Learning To Play: Coins for all Canadian NHL teams
- Disney products such as Disney Princesses, Mickey through the Ages, Bambi
- DC Comics Originals: All Star Comics;
- The Free Official Canada 150 Collector Card – 7 My Canada, My Inspiration Coins;
- Baby Coin Gift sets
The Royal Canadian Mint 2018 Silver Coins– Learning To Play Canadian team NHL series
A perfect gift for a young hockey fan also destined to begin collecting coins, the Pure Silver Coloured Coin comes in a mintage of 7,000 and boasts a number of special features. Composed of 99.99% pure silver, this coin features a coloured design on the reverse by Canadian artist John Mantha. The design depicts different outdoor pond hockey scenes showing a child practicing stickhandling, tying skates, or shooting a puck with his parent. The NHL team logo is featured above the outdoor scene. The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II can be seen on the obverse, which is the artwork of Susanna Blunt.

The 3 oz. Reverse Gold-Plated Pure Silver Coin – DC Comics Originals: All Star Comics
Collecting coins is an interesting enough hobby as it is. When coupled with comic books, the combination becomes an intoxicating mix of intricate designs, themes, and editions. A true representative of such an infatuating mix is certainly this 3 oz. Reverse Gold-Plated Silver Coin. With a mintage of just 3,000, these coins are the absolute best way to remember your favourite DC Comics characters from the 1970s and early 1980s. A unique feature of these coins is the application of gold plating throughout the reverse. This is most evident on the Superman coin, which appears to have a rich golden gleam that resembles an aged sepia tint of a page from an old comic book. Surely a perfect addition to any exquisite coin collection.
