Canada 2003 Circulating Sets - Cobalt Silver Strike

Canada 2003 coin setsIn the summer of 1903, J. H. McKinley and Ernest Darraugh, two T&NO Railway workers, found pieces of soft, silver, metallic rock scattered around the picturesque shores of Cobalt Lake, Ontario. A few days later, blacksmith Fred LaRose, as legend goes, threw a hammer at a fox and uncovered the first of many rich silver veins in the Cobalt Mining Camp.

A staking rush soon followed as prospectors and miners from all over the continent tried to claim their share of the richest silver camp in all the world.

The year 2003 marks the 100th anniversary of the Cobalt Silver Strike.

All coins in the Proof Set are in sterling silver, except the Common Loon dollar and one-cent coin. The two dollar coin features a 24-karat gold-plated inner core. And to mark this historic event, the Proof Silver Dollar is struck in 99,99% pure silver!  Limited to 100,000 sets worldwide.
