POPULAR 1965 CANADA SILVER PROOF-LIKE SET

Canada 1965 mint set, obverseCanada 1965 mint set, reverse
This six coin Proof-like from the Royal Canadian Mint includes the silver dollar, 50 cents, 25 cents and 10 cents struck in .800 fine silver, as well as the nickel 5 cents and bronze 1 cent.  The coins come were specially struck with a mirror-like surface and come in their original Royal Canadian Mint packaging.  The sets contain 1.11 troy ounces of silver. The sets were issued at the height of the 1960’s coin boom. The 1965 set featured the new Arnold Machin portrait of Queen Elizabeth and the U.S. mint had just halted the manufacturing of Proof sets, all of which sparked further interest in the sets.  Sales were by mail only starting January 2, 1965 and were limited to only five sets per order.   Dealers, investors and collectors flooded Ottawa, crowding the post offices nearest the mint to place multiple orders.  The sets sold out within a few hours and many orders were sent back.  Temporary workers were hired to process the orders and the mint ordered additional presses to fill the demand.  Eventually Canada re-opened the sales for the set, but backlog was so great that many of the 1965 sets were not delivered until 1966.   We have this attractive and popular Proof-like set in their original mint packaging at a modest premium above their melt value. We also have a few original unopened mint sealed boxes of five 1965 Canadian Proof-like sets.  Few of the original mint sealed boxes still exist today, making them a real collector’s item!
