Canada's Polar Bear expands its appearance of grandeur on this huge low mintage 2018 pure silver "Big Coin". The popularity of this series is easy to understand. In addition to their impressive appearance with a 65 mm diameter, proof finish and selective rose gold plating, collectability is strongly supported by the extremely low mintage, which has been reduced this year to just 1,500 (from the mintage of 2,150 in 2017). The coins are also widely viewed as the highest quality annual coin set in Canada, with each coin representing the very best and lowest mintage example of the denomination. While a regular 2 dollar coin has a diameter of 28 mm and a weight of just 6.92 grams in base metal, this two dollar has a diameter of 65 mm and has a weight of over 155 grams, or 5 ounces, in pure silver.
This is about equal the weight of 22 regular two dollars. The coin is double or triple struck to ensure fine detail and a near flawless surface, while the design is further enhanced with selective rose coloured gold plating on both sides, highlighting the coin's main design and the effigy of the queen.As a pure silver coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.
