Background: Canadian $5 Silver Olympic Coins
Aimed at celebrating and funding the 1976 Montreal Summer Olympics, the Royal Canadian Mint unveiled this unique coin series in February of 1973. The program included 28 silver coins with a face value of $5 or $10 — which marked the first time the mint released coins in these denominations — along with two gold coins.
The new silver coins would be divided into seven series, each including two $5 coins and two $10 coins.
The reverse of each coin features the Olympic logo, along with the coin’s denomination and inscriptions, in the same area of the coin. They were released in both satin and proof finishes, and the obverse of each coin features the profile of a young Queen Elizabeth II.
