Comments

"L" means the RCM logo was used, the "W" indicates Winnipeg plant.
NOTE: 2006 last "P" (for plated) composition mark used and the maple leaf logo introduced as well.

Specimen version exist that have satin/brushed finish background with polished mirror finish relief detail.


The Royal Mint's 2017 annual report lists a 110,720,000 mintage for regular circulating 2017 coins, even though the regular coins were switched to a 150-commemorative (which has a different mintage listed). However, starting in 2017, the annual report omitted the 'Coins struck dated 2017' table, meaning the 110,720,000 coins were probably dated either 2016 or 2018, even though they were struck in 2017.
