This huge low mintage 2016 pure silver 25 cent coin is the second coin in the 2016 ÒBig CoinsÓ pure silver proof set. The subscription to the 2015 six piece set sold out from the Royal Canadian Mint within minutes of its release, and all individual coins also sold out on the day of release. Values of all coins released so far in this series have gone up in the secondary market, in the range of $700 to $1,200 each. In addition to being spectacular looking coins, the coins in this series now form the top quality coin set in Canada, and individually represent the highest quality coin for each denomination.

This 5-ounce fine silver 25-cent piece features Canadian artist Emanuel Hahn's iconic caribou design, first issued in 1937. It shows the familiar right-side profile of a caribou with majestic antlers. The caribou is selectively colour.This design has been used continuously on Canadian "quarters," with a number of notable exceptions.

The mintage of this coin and others in the Big Coins series is extremely low, with only 1,500 coins of each design being produced. As a pure silver coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, there is no HST or GST applicable on this item.
