A two-dollar coin honoring Canada’s boreal forest is now in circulation. This coin was preceded by a one-dollar circulation coin dedicated to the centennial of Parks Canada in October 2011 and will be followed in early 2012 by a trio of 25-cent coins featuring the orca, wood bison and peregrine falcon.  According to the Royal Canadian Mint, all five of these coins are part of the “our legendary nature” theme.

Canadians can purchase a package of five news Boreal Forest coins for $10 at www.mint.ca/legendary.

“As one of the world’s largest ecosystems, the boreal forest is an integral part of Canada and of the Canadian experience, which deserves to be immortalized on a special two-dollar circulation coin Canadians can collect from coast to coast to coast,” said Ian E. Bennett, president and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint.

The public can now order a special uncirculated coin set as well as a variety of gold and silver collector coins complementing the “legendary nature” coins. This selection of collector coins includes 50-cent 1/25-ounce gold coins or $10 face value pure silver coins featuring Canada’s boreal forest; the Orca; the Wood Bison; and the Peregrine Falcon.
