Another coin copyright/patent issue! The first coin that had some copyright controversy was the Isle of Man "Britannia Rules The Waves" coin where the motto was an infringement on the UK Royal Mint's Property rights. I don't fully know the legal issues other than the motto was not able to be used by the Isle of Man since the UK Royal Mint had rights to it. Well there is another controversy and this time it is two Commonwealth countries suing each other. From what I gather there is a special technique that the Royal Canadian Mint developed to put color on coins. And, according to the RCM, the Australian coins using colorization are using that method without permission! See the article link at the end of the post. Has anyone started hoarding the Australian $2 coins in question? Or any other colorized coins? Anyone following this or the other "copyright coins" to see how they have done in terms of price movement? http://nationalpost.com/news/politics/first-it-was-poppies-now-its-possum-magic-canadian-mint-ups-ante-in-court-battle-with-australia-over-coins
The Royal Canadian Mint honors the 150th anniversary of the Canadian state with a special bullion coin in gold and silver. The "Voyageur" is valid in Canada, but is explicitly designed as an investment coin, thus enhancing the Royal Canadian Mint's product portfolio with Maple Leafs as well as animal motifs. The five-dollar fine silver coin "Voyageur" is reminiscent of a historic Canadian silver coin, which was put into circulation in 1935 to the 25th throne anniversary of King George V. The modern interpretation from the year 2017 as well as the historical original shows a "Voyageur" and an Indian, who paddle together in a canoe. In the background, there are strokes to show the vast, untamed wilderness of Canada. There is also a variation in gold. In addition to the historical motif, the RCM also ensures continuity in the design of the remaining areas of the coin: the ultra-precise radial lines on the front and back of the coin serve as a counterfeit detection feature and create a special glimmer. The maple leaf with the number "17" in the center of the leaf is also to be found as microgravur on the coin. The look is strongly reminiscent of the other Bullion coins from Canada - and also the packaging is well-known: the coins are sold in a monster box with 500 coins and carry the Canada 150 logo. The coin will be available from September for a short time. Ony 15,000 pieces in gold and 250,000 pieces in silver will be minted, both coins are sold close to the spot price.
