This is the World's finest collection of Canada Commemorative S$8 Proof coins ever assembled, 2004 - 2016. This is a showcase of this masterpiece, which was very difficult to assemble and took many years.

By far, the most difficult coin to acquire in PF70 in this set is the 2004 Great Grizzly coin. For whatever reason, this coin was handled very poorly by the RCM. Along the edges, virtually every one of these coins has distinct rim toning. I believe that whatever machine or individual who handled these coins contaminated them severely causing the toning. It took great effort to find one without rim toning! In fact, I submitted 27 coins (or so) before I got one in PF70! This has added greatly to the cost of this set, since I am unable to recover my costs on the PF69 coins until the price of silver greatly increases, or until the market sees a greater deal of interest. I am proud of this set, and for a long period of time Dan Hughes and I were very competitive in this set. I hope you enjoy these coins, another collector will have a very difficult and frustrating time trying to recreate it! - Josh
