1973 (1873-) Canadian 25-Cent RCMP Mounted Police Centennial Quarter Roll in Coin Tube (Circulated)


A special coin was designed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the North West Mounted Police, which was later renamed to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

The standard rim denticles were replaced by a row of dots around the rim.


1973 RCMP Commemorative 25-cent Bust Varieties

A new obverse with a smaller, more detailed portrait and fewer rim denticles placed further from the rim was prepared for use with the commemorative reverse. However, a small quantity of coins were struck with the 1972 obverse, creating two varieties for the year. The quantity of the Large Bust variey struck for circulation is believed not to exceed 10,000.



The obverse design features a bust image of Queen Elizabeth II and the phrase "ELIZABETH II D.G. REGINA".

Designed by Paul Cedarberg, the back is a mounted RCMP Police officer in dress uniform carring the flag from the trademark Musical Ride that the RCMP does when on parade. Over the horse's head is a maple leaft and the denomination is behind the officer. Around the top is the word Canada. The horse divides the 1873-1973 dates.



Roll includes 40 coins of 1973 (1873-) Canadian 25 Cents RCMP Commemorative (small bust) in brilliant uncirculated condition.
