Pure Silver Commemorative Coin series[edit]

A series of commemorative silver coins was introduced in 2011. The coins in this series were sold at their face value of twenty Canadian dollars. They have a specimen finish and are .9999 pure silver, weighing 7.96 grams. The coins were sold by the Mint encapsulated in hard plastic and included a certificate of authenticity. With each release, the Royal Canadian Mint redirected the domain 20for20.ca to the latest coin in the series. In 2012, the third coin in the series became available for order, and a subscription program was introduced allowing customers to purchase the next two coins of the series whose designs had yet to be announced. The first coin of the subscription commemorated the Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II and the second commemorated the end of production of the Canadian penny, both occurring in 2012. Notably, the Diamond Jubilee coin bears a unique reverse design depicting a younger Queen compared to the rest of the coins in the series. A fourth coin was released in 2012 during the holiday season and bore a stylized reindeer on the reverse. The series continued into 2013 with a coin commemorating hockey and another depicting a wolf.
