A prehistoric RCM series begins with rimless, splash struck silver coins!

“Ancient Canada” series begins with Ornithomimus

Journey back to pre-historic times with the RCM!

For many years, people have seen wild, bird-like dinosaurs portrayed in various movies and shows. Oftentimes, these cinematic portrayals were based on the Ornithomimus. Believed to resemble a modern-day ostrich, these now-extinct animals lived during the late Cretaceous period and fed on a variety of things such as plants, seeds and animals.

2017 Canada Ancient Canada Ornithomimus 1oz Antiqued Silver NGC MS70 ER

The RCM is proud to begin a new series with ancient roots with the introduction of their Antiqued Silver Ornithomimus coin! A truly unique release, each .9999 fine silver coin has been Splash Struck, a process similar to the minting technique used in ancient Roman times. Because coins within this brand-new series do not have a rim, while being minted, each coin was allowed to spill over when struck resulting in every coin having a unique shape.

With a limited mintage of just 5,500 coins, collectors can choose from GEM BU coins complete with original Mint Packaging and releases that have been certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation to be in MS69 and MS70 condition with the Early Releases designation and paired with the MCM exclusive Canada Label!

2016 Proof Silver Guy Fawkes Mask: A coin unlike anything else!

2016 Proof Silver Guy Fawkes Mask Coin

Celebrate the legend with these highly limited, historic coins!

Guy Fawkes stands as a legend in time for his central role in the plot to assassinate King James I of England. Known as the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, Fawkes and several other conspirators secretly created a store of gunpowder in the cellar of the Parliament House. They planned to blow up the King and many of his most influential nobles during a large meeting. The plan failed, however, when Fawkes was discovered with the gunpowder only hours before the King would be sitting directly above.

2016 Cook Islands $5 1 oz. Enameled Proof Silver Guy Fawkes Mask NGC PF69 UC Early Releases

This plot has long been celebrated in England on the day the assassination was intended to occur; the 5th of November. Fireworks and a tradition of burning stuffed effigies of Guy Fawkes, clad with stylized masks depicting a jovial version of his face are key features in this annual event. In England, the 5th of November is known as Firework Night or Guy Fawkes Night.

This mask has been present for more than just celebration, however. Many will recognize it as the face of the hacker group known as ”Anonymous,” who have a performed a number of well-publicized attacks on government websites. With all of its history, it may come as a surprise that this mask was never featured on a coin — until now!

ModernCoinMart is proud to present Guy Fawkes’ legacy in .999 fine silver! Struck to an exceptionally High Relief and finished with fine, white enamel by the Coin Invest Trust (CIT), the Guy Fawkes Mask is depicted in marvelous detail. A testament of CIT’s skill, it was graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) in the very high grades PF69 and PF70 Early Releases!

With a limited mintage of only 999 coins, you will need to act fast to secure yours!
