You won't ever find it in your change though.
When it comes to picking the most unique Canadian coins, it's hard to look further than one that's actually the shape of a mountie hat!
The pure silver, gold-plated Classic Mountie Hat coin was created in 2020 by the Royal Canadian Mint to honour the 100th anniversary of the organization being renamed the RCMP and becoming a federal police force.

This marked the first time that the Royal Canadian Mint has done a 3D coin in the shape of a mountie hat.
In another first, a special frosting was used so that it's like the actual material of the hat and a special brown gold surface plating technique was used to make the leather band look authentic.
It might be the same colour as a loonie, but it's a heck of a lot more expensive. This mountie coin costs $229.95 to purchase, and it has a face value of $25.
The Royal Canadian Mint has put out a lot of unique coins in recent years including colourful toonies that could make their way into your wallet and commemorative coins that feature everything from dinosaurs to UFOs.
