Comments

The 'P' composition mark was used until 2006 to indicate multi-plated coins. A new Maple Leaf Logo was introduced in the same year; pieces with the RCM Logo are indicated by an 'L' in this catalog.

There also exists also a 2006 cupro-nickel 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 annual 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 annual 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.
