Description

The year 2020 was a commemorative one for the Mounties: it marked 100 years since the Royal North West Mounted police was renamed the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and took on its federal policing responsibilities. Looking ahead to 2023, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police will be celebrating 150 years as Canada's national police service. It's proud of its history and the many milestones that have made the organization what it is today! To celebrate, we've engineered a never-before-seen 3D coin shape: an RCMP hat. Beneath the gold plating on the reverse, a special frosting captures the look of the hat's felt material while brown gold plating (also a first) colours the bronze band. And take a look at what's under that wide brim—you'll find the RCMP motto and the RCMP rider from our 2020 2 oz. bullion coin. We salute Canada's national police force by introducing another exciting first: an RCMP hat coin! Order today!

Special features:

Design: This gold-plated coin was engineered to be a pure silver 3D replica of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police uniform hat. The reverse is a top view of the iconic hat and its Montana peak crown. For an added touch of authenticity, a special frosting beneath the gold plating on the reverse mimics the textured look of felt while the leather band is re-created using a brown gold surface plating technique (a first). On the obverse, the RCMP motto "MAINTIENS LE DROIT" (Defending the Law) is engraved on the brim along with the commemorative dates "1920 – 2020" to mark 100 years since the organization was renamed the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and took on its federal policing mandate. The obverse also includes the word "CANADA", the face value "25 DOLLARS", a miniature version of the RCMP rider featured on the Royal Canadian Mint's 2020 2 oz. bullion coin (bottom), and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt (top).

Did you know… It wasn't part of the official uniform until 1904. The hat has a wide brim that helps shield the eyes and face from the elements, and that's why some members of the North-West Mounted Police (a predecessor to today's RCMP) preferred it to the standard issue pith helmet or pillbox cap for patrol duty. Since it wasn't part of the uniform at that time, members paid for the hats themselves, but that changed once it was adopted as part of the official uniform.

Like the 2018 helmet-shaped coin, this RCMP tribute piece comes in a custom-shaped capsule and clamshell insert that were specially designed to protect your new collectible.
