The Royal Canadian Mint is proud to present a Special Edition 2010 Specimen Set of Canadian coins. The finish on these superb coins is a three-fold combination of brilliant and frosted relief on a lined finish background.
This year’s second Specimen set features the Wildlife Baby Series – Young Lynx on the two dollar coin. The shy and reclusive Lynx is often called the “grey ghost of the North.” It is easily confused with the Bobcat, but can be distinguished by its oversized paws; shorter, black-tipped tail; long, thick fur; prominent face ruffs and ears that are more pointed with longer tufts.
- Two dollar coin featuring the Baby Lynx only found in this set.
- Each coin in this set has been individually inspected to ensure that it meets the high standards of the Royal Canadian Mint.
