Product Description

 

2010 Canada $10 Sterling Silver - Blue Whale Coin and Stamp Set (unopened Mint Sealed)
This handsome set, complete with an oversized mint block of stamps(appropriately, the largest ever issued by Canada Post!) and silver proof coin, represents an excellent opportunity to show your appreciation for this unique marine mammal!

• A large, silver, proof-finish coin (available only in this set, and encapsulated for preservation), featuring a beautiful rendition of an adult blue whale, the largest creature ever to have lived on Earth!
• Two high-value, full-color stamps, issued on a single block. One has a unique first day of issue cancellation, and naturally both are unused. These blue whale stamps are the largest ever issued by Canada Post!
• A full-color booklet with pictures and stories about the animals as well as additional information.
• An individually-numbered certificate of authenticity with full specifications for the coin and stamps.
• A positively huge, solid maple presentation case embossed with the Canadian maple leaf and lined with elegant black velvet.
• A full-color outer sleeve to enhance and protect the set.
