Description

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 colour versions of the $2 commemorative coin. Mintage is limited to just 17,000 rolls.

Each discovery of insulin coloured special wrap roll instantly adds 25 coloured versions of the 2021 $2 commemorative coin to your collection. Each coin features a touch of blue that highlights insulin on the 100th anniversary of its discovery. Neatly rolled up in a custom paper wrap, these coins serve as a lasting reminder of how a Canadian medical breakthrough has had an immeasurable global impact over the last century. Blue is the colour of diabetes awareness.

Designed by Canadian artist Jesse Koreck, the $2 coin’s reverse is double dated (“1921 2021”) to commemorate the 100th anniversary of this 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, which is highlighted in blue, 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.
