# 597 - 1976 Olympic Coins - Part 18

in steemsilvergold •  5 months ago 

In 1976 Montreal, Quebec, hosted the XXI Summer Olympiad.

To commemorate and help finance Canada's first Olympics, the federal government agreed to produce a series of 28 silver and 2 gold coins.

There are seven series of silver coins. Each series has two $5 CAD and two $10 CAD, making a total of 14 coins of each denomination. Each series depicts different Olympic themes on the reverse and has a common design (except for the date) on the obverse.

The Olympic coins were offered to the collectors in two finishes, Brilliant Uncirculated and Proof.

I wrote a few articles about the Proof coins that I have and now I will show the Brilliant Uncirculated series that I have.

All the coins have a 92.5% silver purity (7.5% copper) and the $5 CAD weights 24.3g and the $10 CAD weights 48.6g.

The series VII has the theme "Olympic Games Souvenir Designs".

The eighteenth coin is a $5 CAD designed by Elliot John Morrison, winner of an invitational competition, and its name is "Olympic Village".

It shows an simplified design of the Olympic Village.
Its issue price was $8.00 CAD.

The obverse shows the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, designed by Arnold Machin.

How much was the issue price of the entire set? The diameter of that 5 dollar coin... it must be like a half dollar size? The entire set is beautiful... sometimes the simplest designs are the best. What I like most about this set is the young Elizabeth obverse. Have a wonderful day. 🌺🤙

This set (matte black leatherette case with blue insert) was called "prestige set" and its price was $60 CAD. The other sets (black case with red interior) were called "standard sets" and its price was $52 CAD.
The $5 coin diameter is 38mm (same as the Maple Leaf) and the $10 diameter is 45mm.
