Our coins serve as mementos of a year filled with special moments, new beginnings and milestones. This set locks in your 2021 circulation coins and keeps them under wraps for you to share with future generations. The coins in each set are uncirculated first strikes; they are among Canada’s first 2021-dated circulation coins struck at our Winnipeg facility. And every circulating denomination (5¢, 10¢, 25¢, $1 and $2) is represented here, all wrapped in premium paper and sealed with a holographic label.
