All coins in the Proof Set are in sterling silver, except the Common Loon dollar and one-cent coin. The two dollar coin features a 24-karat gold-plated inner core. The year 2002 is very special. It marks the 50th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne. Beautifully rendered, the reverse of the commemorative sterling silver dollar portrays Her Majesty on the day of her coronation.
To mark this historic event, the obverse of all coins in the 2002 Proof Set are struck with the double dates "1952-2002."
