Royal Canadian Mint Introduces New $2 Coin Celebrating Canada's Boreal Forest

Back to Newsletter index

The Royal Canadian Mint is pleased to inform Canadians they can soon start collecting a new 2011 two-dollar circulation coin honouring Canada's boreal forest. This coin which has now entered circulation was preceded by a one-dollar circulation coin dedicated to the centennial of Parks Canada in October 2011 and will be followed in early 2012 by a trio of 25-cent coins featuring the Orca, Wood Bison and Peregrine Falcon. All five of these special circulation coins are inspired by the theme of "our legendary nature" a fixture of Canadian pride and identity.

two dollar boreal forest coinBetween November 4-6, 2011, the Mint will invite the public to trade their loose change for the two-dollar Boreal Forest circulation coin at its boutiques in Ottawa, Winnipeg and Vancouver.  At the same time, the Mint will join Parks Canada as a co-exhibitor at the annual Banff Mountain Film and Book festival in Banff, Alberta, where visitors to the Banff Centre will also be able to acquire this new coin at face value.

As Canadians find these coins in their change, they will soon be able to assemble a full collection of 2011 commemorative circulation coins in a special collector card to be available, free of charge, on the Mint's web site later this month.
