Why purchase this 2017 Canada Alex Colville Design Gilded 5 oz. Silver Proof Nickel?

In 1967, in celebration of the Centennial Anniversary of Canada, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) released commemorative issues of circulating coinage designed by Alex Colville, 20th century Canadian artist. For Canada's 150th Anniversary, the RCM has re-issued Colville's impressive designs enhanced with gold plating. This exceptional 65.25 mm diameter proof is from 5 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver, limited to a mintage of only 2,150 coins.

1967 Canadian Centennial 5-Cent Coin design

Gilded and portrayed in mid-leap to the left, Alex Colville's incredibly detailed rabbit appears on the reverse, surrounded by a beaded border, gilded edge, and the inscriptions "5 CENTS" and "CANADA," with the commemorative dates "1867-2017."

The obverse is adorned with the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II which was minted on the original Canadian Centennial release, designed by Arnold Machin. Inscribed "ELIZABETH II" and "D. G. REGINA."
