MONTRÉAL, June 27, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Monnaie Collection Royale is very proud to announce the launch of a special-edition uncirculated coin set to mark the official inauguration of the Samuel de Champlain Bridge.
Available for a limited time only, the special-edition set includes an official commemorative coin along with an uncirculated 50-cent piece struck by the Royal Canadian Mint. Both collectible coins come inserted in a magnificent fold-out display card featuring photos of the new bridge and text explaining its design and construction.
Available at multiple points of sale, including souvenir shops in Montréal and selected Canada Post counters (in Jean Coutu pharmacies) as well as from monnaieroyale.com for $19.95, this set from Monnaie Collection Royale is the perfect souvenir immortalizing the inauguration of this monumental feat of engineering that symbolizes the immense pride of the people of Québec and all of Canada.
The Samuel de Champlain Bridge, to be officially inaugurated on June 28, 2019, is an impressive, modern gateway to Greater Montréal, reflecting the reality of the region and meeting the diverse transportation needs of its users. More than 2,000 dedicated individuals worked hard over a period of four years to design, plan and build the bridge, named in honour of one of Canada's best-known historical figures.
