A special proof dollar to help preserve your memories of a historic event. Held on May 6, 2023, the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III is a momentous occasion and marks the first coronation of a new Sovereign of Canada in seven decades. The formal investiture of the monarch’s regal power is a spectacle like no other — one steeped in pomp, pageantry and centuries-old traditions that connect the past and future. Culminating in the religious ceremony held at Westminster Abbey in London (United Kingdom), the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III is both a solemn and celebratory event that will long be remembered, and it is commemorated through the Royal Cypher appearing on this Limited Edition Proof Silver Dollar.
His Majesty’s Royal Cypher makes its Canadian numismatic debut on this and other Coronation-themed collectibles from the Royal Canadian Mint. Its appearance on your coin’s reverse signals the start of a new era in Canadian numismatics.
Part of His Majesty King Charles III Coronation suite, a unique collection of Canadian coins specially issued to commemorate the momentous occasion.
The commemorative packaging is coloured green, which was inspired by the colourful gemstones depicted in the Royal Cypher. It is also a nod to His Majesty’s longstanding commitment and passion for conservation and environmentalism.
