In honour of the May 19th Royal Wedding of HRH Prince Henry of Wales and Ms Meghan Markle, the Royal Canadian Mint is releasing a beautifully crafted silver collector coin and is making a $25,000 donation to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) Foundation in Toronto. CAMH holds special meaning for Prince Harry as his mental health advocacy led him to officially visit Canada’s largest mental health and addiction teaching hospital in September 2017.
The coin, designed by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel, features an engraving of one of the official engagement photos of the royal couple-to-be. Three genuine Swarovski® crystals edge the portrait, recalling the design of the couple’s three-stone diamond engagement ring. The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, designed by Canadian artist Susannah Blunt, appears on the obverse.
The 2018 $20 Fine Silver Coin – The Royal Wedding of HRH Prince Henry and Ms Meghan Markle has a limited mintage of 15,000 and retails for $104.95. It can be ordered by contacting the Mint at 1-800-267-1871 in Canada or online at www.mint.ca.
