CoinWeek met up with Royal Canadian Mint Senior Advisor Alex Reeves at the World’s Money Fair in Berlin to talk about a spectacular 1 kilogram pure silver Canadian coin with a face value of $250.
The coin recalls the glory of Canadian numismatic history and was so impressive in hand that we wanted to learn more about it.
We also ask Alex, whether the Royal Canadian Mint might consider a gold 1 kilogram coin with a similar motif.
