Another design first for the Royal Canadian Mint, this new series features royal effigies on both the obverse and the reverse of these elegant sterling silver coins. The reverse of the first of these coins features an ultra-high relief effigy of Her Majesty Queen Victoria, which appeared on the 1-, 25- and 50-cent coins which were issued in Canada from 1870 to 1901. Future issues from this five-coin series will include King Edward VII and King George V (2008), as well as King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II (2009). All these designs were approved by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Bearing a $15 denomination, this visually impressive, frosted effigy is set against a proof-like field. These coins were struck four times and hand polished in order to achieve their dramatic appearance. Limited to a world-wide mintage of 10,000, the first coin in this series retails for $99.95 CDN.
