Description

The discovery of Insulin is known to be one of the most important medical breakthroughs of the twentieth century. With over 422 million people suffering from the condition Diabetes worldwide, the significance of Insulin as medication is unparalleled for sufferers of this dangerous infirmity. Initially developed in 1921, the two Toronto born researchers, Frederick Banting and Charles Best, discovered Insulin under the guidance of John Macleod who was a teacher at the University of Toronto at the time. With the support of James Collip - a biochemist working in the department of physiology at the University of Toronto, the four researchers were able to purify the medication, and thus make it available for the successful treatment of Diabetes. In commemoration of this ground-breaking discovery, The Royal Canadian Mint have released this special seven-piece keepsake set which includes a 5-cent, 10-cent, 25-cent, $1, and three $2 versions of these stunning $2 Canadian Uncirculated Circulation Coins. With regards to the latter denomination, you will receive a selectively coloured edition $2 Coin, and a non-coloured $2 Coin. The reverse of the three stunning $2 Silver Plated coins depicts the iconic maple leaf behind laboratory equipment, proudly recognising this discovery as a Canadian medical breakthrough. Celebrate this iconic period of Canadian History with this limited-edition coin set now!
