2020 Canadian Specimen 6-Coin Collector Set ft $1 Black-Footed Ferret Loonie Dollar

While Canada is home to an estimated 80,000 species, many are facing an uncertain future. Habitat loss and human activities are putting our natural heritage at risk. But there is reason to hope for the future, thanks to the efforts of organizations, volunteers and everyday Canadians. The future of our endangered species and habitats is in our hands, and this year's specimen set is a reminder that conservation is a long-term commitment.
The 2020 Specimen Set's dollar coin features the black-footed ferret. This once-lost resident of our grasslands has been the focus of decades-long recovery efforts led by volunteers and partners—including the Toronto Zoo, Calgary Zoo, Parks Canada and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service—who are working together to give this species another chance in Canada.

This affordable set makes a great gift, and it's an easy way to share your passion and interests by starting a young person on their collecting journey. Order today.


NEW THEME: This year's specimen set shifts the focus onto wildlife conservation by showcasing one of Canada's endangered species on the specimen dollar coin.
A CONSERVATION STORY: The black-footed ferret's Canadian re-introduction story highlights the patience, cooperation and dedication behind species recovery efforts. It serves as a reminder that we all play a part in nature conservation and that it is a long-term commitment.
A RARE FINISH: Includes a rare 50-cent coin in a specimen finish — it's only available as part of this set.
A DIFFERENT  SPECIES: The specimen dollar has featured a different bird each year since 2004. But with this year's set, the black-footed ferret becomes the first mammal to appear on a specimen $1 coin—another set exclusive.
EXCLUSIVE FINISH: All six coins in this set feature a specimen finish, with brilliant and frosted relief over a lined specimen background. We are the only mint in the world to offer an annual set in a specimen finish.
SIX COINS IN ONE PACKAGE: You get a total of six coins: the special edition dollar coin, along with the 2020 designs for the two-dollar, 50-cent, 25-cent, 10-cent and 5-cent circulation coins. All six coins are presented in book-style packaging with a removable lens.
LOWER MINTAGE: The mintage on this year's specimen set is lower than last year's, making this coin set more special.


Designed by Caitlin Lindstrom-Milne, your special $1 coin features a black-footed ferret (Mustela nigripes) in its natural grassland habitat, where it pauses at the edge of a burrow surrounded by grama grass. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


Your specimen set comes in elegant book-style packaging, with removable lens, that complements your beautiful coins.
