In preparation for the upcoming Pride of Two Nations coin release, the United States Mint has announced their official partnership with the Royal Canadian Mint.
As today’s world is becoming increasingly connected, so are the opportunities to collaborate with other mints around the world. Under the leadership of Director David J. Ryder, the U.S. Mint recently announced a new partnership with the Royal Canadian Mint to issue the first-ever limited edition two-coin set, the 2019 Pride of Two Nations.United States Mint Press Release
The announcement comes one week before the new two-coin set is released on July 3, 2019. The $139.95 set will contain a 2019-W in an enhanced reverse proof finish as well as a Royal Canadian Mint 2019 Silver Maple Leaf in a modified proof finish. Both coins are .999 pure silver. The set will be the first set sold by the United States Mint to feature a bilingual Certificate of Authenticity, with it being in English and in French. It will also come with both coins encapsulated and in a leatherette presentation case, similar to the cases that you see on other commemoratives from the Mint.
The Mint also announced that a limited number of these sets will be on hand at the World’s Fair of Money in Chicago. That event happens August 13-17, 2019. United States Mint Director David Ryder and Royal Canadian Mint CEO Marie Lemay will be on hand to sign Certificates of Authenticity for the set
The mint has enabled the product page for it now and you can sign up for a reminder when it goes live on July 3rd.
This is the second partnership that the United States Mint has developed in 2019. Earlier this year, the Royal Mint of Australia and the US Mint teamed up on an Apollo 11 two-coin set, highlighting the two countries partnership that was required for the moon landing to be successful.
