Canada Actually Has A Coin In The Shape Of A Mountie Hat Because Of Course We Do

You won't ever find it in your change though.

Canadian Coins Include This Unique Mountie Hat-Shaped One

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.
