Description

KEY FEATURES

  • SECOND IN A MULTI-YEAR SERIES: Keep your specimen set collection up to date with these 2021 coins! This is the second in our multi-year Endangered Species specimen set series. And just like last year's (2020) set, the exclusive dollar coin has been dedicated to raising awareness about wildlife conservation and species recovery efforts in Canada.
  • A TIMELY TOPIC: Ongoing efforts to protect and reverse the declining Blanding's turtle population offer hope for the future of the species. Its re-introduction to the Rouge Valley in Ontario highlights the dedication of those involved in species reintroduction and recovery efforts, and reminds us that we all play a part in nature conservation.
  • FOR REPTILE LOVERS: This is the first time a reptile has been featured on the annual specimen set's dollar coin.
  • A WORLD EXCLUSIVE: All six coins feature a specimen finish: brilliant and frosted relief over a lined specimen background. We are the only mint in the world to offer an annual set in a specimen finish.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins
