Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, the Royal Canadian Mint is now selling a one-ounce $20 silver coin featuring a four-leaf clover.
Composed in 99.99% pure silver and in collector proof finish, this 7,500-limited coin is available for CAD $109.95, or about US $79.
"There may only be a one in 10,000 chance of finding a four-leaf clover in an emerald field of shamrock, but with this beautiful enamel coin, the luck of the Irish is never far away," promotes the Royal Canadian Mint’s website.
Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
A green enameled four leaf clover appears on coin’s reverse (tails side), marking the first time the lucky symbol has been featured on a Royal Canadian Mint product. Around the clover are inscriptions of CANADA, 20 DOLLARS the year 2016 and LC for the coin’s designer, artist Lilyane Coulombe.
Each is struck as legal tender of Canada and, as such, bears an obverse of Susanna Blunt’s effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Around the portrait are inscriptions of ELIZABETH II and D G REGINA.
