The United States Mint’s communications department shared some photos this week from the Pride of Two Nations launch event held on July 3. Mint Director David Ryder welcomed Royal Canadian Mint CEO Marie Lamay to the Mint’s Philadelphia facility to launch the 2019 Pride of Two Nations Limited Edition Two-Coin Set™.
The set commemorates the nationhood of both countries with coins that capture their rich history, pride, and their close relationship as neighbors and friends. This unique product is a joint coin set between the two Mints.
“Not only do the United States and Canada share a border, but we also share history and many cultural values that have resulted in an enduring relationship,” Ryder said. “This coin set is a fitting tribute to our abiding friendship, strong alliance, and commitment to cooperation.”
Mintage of this historic set has been set at 110,000 units. Orders will be limited to five units per household for the first 48 hours of sales, after which the Mint will remove the limit. On July 9, the Mint reported initial sales of 95,294. (U.S. Mint photo by Sharon McPike)
