Canada’s newest $2 commemorative coin marks the 100th anniversary of one of Canada’s greatest contributions to medical research: the discovery of insulin in 1921 by Frederick Banting and his assistant Charles Best. This special wrap roll includes 25 brilliant uncirculated classic engraved versions of the $2 commemorative coin. Mintage is limited to just 10,000 rolls.

Each discovery of insulin special wrap roll instantly adds 25 of the 2021 $2 commemorative coin to your collection. Each classic engraved coin will serve as a lasting reminder of how a Canadian medical breakthrough has had an immeasurable global impact over the last century.

Designed by Canadian artist Jesse Koreck, the $2 coin’s reverse is double dated (“1921 2021”) to commemorate the 100th anniversary of a Canadian medical innovation. The discovery of insulin at a University of Toronto laboratory is represented by a maple leaf and traditional symbols: an early insulin vial, an Erlenmeyer flask, a mortar and pestle. The inner core shows insulin in monomeric form, while the depiction of the hormone at work in the bloodstream extends onto the outer ring. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
