New circulating toonie

Thursday, July 3, 2014

Although we do not know the exact date, a new commemorative circulating two dollars coin will be issued. It will include the partial reproduction of a 1940 photograph by Claude P. Dettloff.

Dettloff, of the Vancouver Province newspaper, captured a famous image, titled Wait for Me, Papa, in New Westminster, B.C., of a young boy catching up to his soldier father, who was marching with his regiment. The inscription Remember (and in French Souvenir) will accompany the image on the new version of the $2 coin.

$1,250 and $1,000 coins

Monnaie royale canadienne

A recent cabinet order authorizes the mint to produce two coins with face values of $1,000 and $1,250, destined for collectors rather than pockets or purses.

At this point, we only have approval to use the new denominations. Until there is approval of specific coins from the minister of finance, we cannot discuss the themes or release dates for what we intend to use these new denominations.

- Spokesman for the Royal Canadian Mint

In 2013, the RCM sold $167 million worth of numismatics and collectibles, a record, after having issued 201 new non-circulating types.
