Comments

NOTE: 2006 final 'P' Composition Mark used and also new Maple Leaf Logo is introduced. There exists also a 2006 version with neither the 'P' Composition Mark nor the Maple Leaf Logo.

Specimen versions exist with satin finished background and polished mirror finish relief detail



The Royal Mint's 2017 anual report lists a 106,680,000 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 anual report omitted the 'Coins struck dated 2017' table, meaning the 106,680,000 coins were probably dated either 2016 or 2018, even though they were struck in 2017.
