Why purchase this roll of twenty-five colorized brilliant uncirculated 2021 Canadian $2 coins celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the discovery of insulin?
The Royal Canadian Mint has issued a $2 coin in 2021 to honor the centennial anniversary of the discovery of insulin. The life-changing medical discovery occurred in 1921 by scientists at the University of Toronto.
Amazingly Detailed Homage to a Scientific Discovery
Obverse: The obverse features the likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the brass-plated center of the coin. The surrounding nickel-plated outer ring contains the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "D.G. REGINA" and "CANADA," along with the coin's denomination of "2 DOLLARS" and a single maple leaf symbol. This rendition of the Queen was designed by Canadian portrait artist Susanna Blunt in 2003.
Reverse: The reverse depicts an early insulin vial, a mortar and pestle, and an Erlenmeyer flask, cradled by a maple leaf to represent the University of Toronto. Above, insulin is illustrated in blue in its monomeric form, while the hormone's activity within the bloodstream is portrayed below, extending into the outer ring. Additional maple leaves adorn the outer ring, engraved with a latent texture as a counterfeit deterrent. The design was created by Jesse Koreck, a well-known Canadian artist whose work is focused primarily on illustrations of technical and scientific subjects.
