COMES FRESH OUT OF A ROLL. An exciting first, a pure silver salute to the RCMP. Order your coin today. The year 2020 was a commemorative one for the Mounties: it marked 100 years since the Royal North West Mounted police was renamed the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and took on its federal policing responsibilities. Looking ahead to 2023, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police will be celebrating 150 years as Canadas national police service. Its proud of its history and the many milestones that have made the organization what it is today! To celebrate, weve engineered a never-before-seen 3D coin shape: an RCMP hat. Beneath the gold plating on the reverse, a special frosting captures the look of the hats felt material while brown gold plating (also a first) colours the bronze band. And take a look at whats under that wide brimyoull find the RCMP motto and the RCMP rider from our 2020 2 oz. We salute Canadas national police force by introducing another exciting first: an RCMP hat coin! Introducing our very first 3D RCMP hat coin!

AN ICONIC SYMBOL: The wide-brimmed hat is instantly recognizable and, along with the RCMPs famous Red Serge tunic, is a world-famous icon that is synonymous with law and order in Canada. FIRST-TIME USE OF BROWN GOLD: Another first: a special brown gold surface plating technique helps capture the look of the hats leather band made out of bronze. LOOKS LIKE FELT: On the reverse, special frosting beneath the gold plating mimics the look of feltjust like a real RCMP hat.

For an added touch of authenticity, a special frosting beneath the gold plating on the reverse mimics the textured look of felt while the leather band is re-created using a brown gold surface plating technique (a first). On the obverse, the RCMP motto MAINTIENS LE DROIT (Defending the Law) is engraved on the brim along with the commemorative dates 1920 2020 to mark 100 years since the organization was renamed the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and took on its federal policing mandate. The obverse also includes the word CANADA, the face value 25 DOLLARS, a miniature version of the RCMP rider featured on the Royal Canadian Mints 2020 2 oz. Bullion coin (bottom), and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt (top). Did you know It wasnt part of the official uniform until 1904. The hat has a wide brim that helps shield the eyes and face from the elements, and thats why some members of the North-West Mounted Police (a predecessor to todays RCMP) preferred it to the standard issue pith helmet or pillbox cap for patrol duty. Since it wasnt part of the uniform at that time, members paid for the hats themselves, but that changed once it was adopted as part of the official uniform.
