The Royal Canadian Mint unveils a collector coin for the 50th anniversary of the Official Languages Act

At a ceremony held at the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa, the institution unveiled a silver collector coin created for the 50th anniversary of the Official Languages Act.

Designed by artist Joel Kimmel, the coin is engraved to mark the 50th anniversary of the Act and includes a bilingual version of Canada’s national anthem, one of the most recognizable symbols of Canada’s linguistic duality.

Limited to a mintage of 15,000, the coin will officially launch in September 2019.
