2009 Specimen Set of Canadian Coinage
The 2009 Specimen Set of Canadian Coinage is a special edition set released by the Royal Canadian Mint in 2009. It includes a total of seven coins, each of which has a unique finish or design. The set includes a one-cent coin, a five-cent coin, a ten-cent coin, a 25-cent coin, a 50-cent coin, a one-dollar coin, and a two-dollar coin. Each coin is struck in a special specimen finish, which gives the coins a frosted appearance on the raised design elements and a mirror-like finish on the fields. The set also includes a specially designed case and a certificate of authenticity from the Royal Canadian Mint. The design of the case features the official logo of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, which were held in Canada in 2010. The 2009 Specimen Set of Canadian Coinage is a popular collector’s item due to its limited mintage and unique finish. It is often sought after by both Canadian and international collectors.
