Why buy this 2017 Canadian Coin Lore: The Forgotten 1927 Designs 1 oz. Silver Reverse Proof 3-Coin Set?
This 3-Coin 2017 Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) Coin Lore: The Forgotten 1927 Designs Set gives you the chance to own three "coins that never were." The designs in this set were originally meant for Canada's Diamond Jubilee in 1927, but they were never used... until now! Only 5,500 of these sets have been issued, so these coins could soon be very difficult to find. Each coin in the set was struck from .9999 fine silver at the RCM and has a reverse proof finish.
Designs by Gustav Hahn and J.E.H. MacDonald
J.E.H. MacDonald created the design that appears on the obverse of each of these coins. It is a right side portrait of King George V, who is shown wearing a crown. He is elaborately dressed in royal garb, and his name and abbreviated title, "GEORGIVUS V DEI GRA REX ET IND IMP," which means, "King George V, by the Grace of God, King and Emperor of India."
Among the reverses, Gustav Hahn designed the one cent piece while MacDonald designed the other two. Hahn's design is in the Art Nouveau style and consists of a bough of maple leafs along with the 150th anniversary dates, "1867-2017." The five cent piece features a crowned lion holding a maple leaf. The coin with the largest denomination bears the image of the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill along with four bells.
