Interesting recent article on the history of Canadian coins.

What I wouldn't do to have the 1858 double specimen set!

Amazing article/story!!! I wonder what the collector paid for it in 2018 before he offered it to the Bank of Canada Museum. Glad to see the trio reunited none the less.

Interesting. The 1858 series is one of my favourites. I realize that they aren't exceptionally rare but I still collect them. My personal white wale is the 1911 dollar - I've seen one in the flesh so far.

I saw it at a coin show some years ago in Toronto though I don't remember which one...! At the time I was just getting back in to coins and didn't really appreciate it. It's the stuff of my fantasy collection now!

Not sure why the BOC museum was so keen on getting the 11 dollar, they have a copy on perimant loan from Royal Mint,was this coin gifted or traded.
