Canadian 2015 Birthday Gift Set
Birthday Gift Sets include a unique $1 coin bearing a reverse design by Ali Giroux. The image offers three balloons grouped together with hanging ribbons for string.
Along with the $1 coin there are this year’s $2, 25¢, 10¢, and 5¢ uncirculated coins. A birthday-day themed card holds the five coins.
Canadian 2015 Baby Gift Set
Ali Giroux created a very precious design for the reverse of the $1 coin found in the 2015 Baby Gift Set. It offers the likeness of an adorable stuffed teddy bear.
The $1 coin is attached to the presentation envelop along with the $2, 25¢, 10¢, and 5¢ uncirculated coins. These make an ideal gift for the newborn of 2015 and their parents.
Canadian 2015 Wedding Gift Set
For those couples getting married in 2015, a Wedding Gift Set is available to mark the occasion. The front of the presentation card offers a colorful image of a bouquet of flowers.
Shown on the reverse of the specially struck $1 coin are two kissing love bird swans. As with the other sets, the packaging has room for personalization.
Canadian 2015 O Canada Gift Set
For all the other special occasions of the year, the Royal Canadian Mint offers the 2015 O Canada Gift Set. In addition to the uncirculated $2, 25¢, 10¢, and 5¢ coins, a specially struck $1 coin depicts a very Canadian design.
The image, also by artist Ali Giroux, shows an iconic maple leaf. "O Canada" appears on the front of the presentation envelope.
