1996 Canada's New Uncirculated $2 Coin & Bank Note Presentation Set


Designed to replace the $2.00 bank note, the new bi-metallic $2.00 toonie coin was issued in February 1996. Featuring the polar bear, it continues the wildlife theme tradition preferred by Canadians.



The new 1996 $2 Toonie Coin design features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. This image appears on all Canadian circulation coins.
The reverse presents an adult polar bear in early summer, hunting along the edge of an ice floe in proximity of the coast. He is paused, frozen in his tracks, concentrating on a distant movement or fresh scent.



1996 Canada's New Uncirculated $2 Coin & Bank Note Presentation Set comes in a tri-panel cardboard presentation folder. The middle panel contains the $2.00 bank note in a hard plastic case. The coin is in the final panel and the folded folder slides into a nicely designed slip cover case.
