Canadian encased coins

By Gaetan C.    |   Wednesday, 10 October 2018

Encased coins are coins that have been inserted into a holder that changes the character of the coin from money to an advertising or souvenir device. The concept was really popularized at the Pan American Exposition in 1901 and was used extensively throughout the the 20th century for advertising.
