1998 (1873-) Canadian $1 RCMP 125th Anniversary Brilliant Uncirculated Sterling Silver Dollar Coin

 

In 1873, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police was established to bring law, order and Canadian authority to the Western frontier. This silver dollar commemorates the 125th Anniversary of this organization.

Established in 1873, The Royal Canadian Police was originally called The Northwest Mounted Rifles. However, the US did not like the idea of an armed military force patrolling the borders. As a result, the name was changed to The North-West Mounted Police (NWMP). In 1904, they were given the "Royal" prefix by King Edward VII, and their name was officially changed to Royal Northwest Mounted Police (RNWMP). By 1920, the RNWMP was changed to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Coin design features a Mountie officer in the original uniform. By the late 1980's, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) had grown to have 18,000 members.
