Limited Edition of 100,000 is the First Joint Numismatic Product Between the United States and Canada
The United States Mint is launching the 2019 Pride of Two Nations Set at noon (ET) today, at the Philadelphia Mint, and is the first joint numismatic product between the United States and Canada. The set commemorates the United States’ and Canada’s nationhood with coins that capture their rich history, pride, and close relationship as neighbors and partners.
The set includes a United States Mint American Silver Eagle one-ounce coin with an enhanced Reverse Proof finish and a Royal Canadian Mint one-ounce Silver Maple Leaf coin with a modified Proof finish. Both finishes are firsts for these coins. The set will also feature the first bilingual (English and French) certificate of authenticity (COA) produced by the U.S. Mint.
After the set goes on sale at noon, visitors to Philadelphia Mint will be able to have Mint products or COAs signed by both U.S. Mint Director Ryder and Royal Canadian Mint Chief Executive Marie Leman, from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m.
Later this summer, limited quantities will be available at the American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money on August 13 through 17, 2019. United States Mint Director David Ryder and Royal Canadian Mint CEO Marie Lemay will be on hand to sign certificates of authenticity for the set.
