Discovery of Insulin - Commemorative Collector Keepsake Card (2021)

Shipping calculated at checkout.

In 2021, our $2 Discovery of Insulin circulation coin commemorates the 100th anniversary of a Canadian innovation that has saved millions of lives. You’ll find two different versions of the $2 commemorative coin in this seven-piece keepsake set: a selectively coloured piece and a non-coloured version. Packaged alongside five other denominations issued in 2021, these uncirculated circulation coins come ready to view and display in a keepsake collector card that celebrates a Canadian medical breakthrough.
