Background: Canadian 1988 Olympic 1 Oz Silver Proof Coins
In 1985, the Canadian government began releasing a 10-coin set, aimed at financing and celebrating the XV Olympic Winter Games. Featuring a face value of $20 — never before used on Canadian coinage — the coins were struck in a beautiful proof finish.
Sold in partnership with the Royal Bank of Canada, mintage was limited to 5,000,000. Each coin features edge lettering, which reads “XV OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES, JEUX D’OLYMPIQUES D’HIVER.” The obverse of the 1 oz silver proof coin features the profile of Queen Elizabeth II.
