Canadian Loonie One Dollar 1987 Coin Pendant 14kt Gold Filled Bezel

Details

Named for the picture of a loon (a type of bird) that is on one side of the gold one-dollar Canadian coin. The other side shows Queen Elizabeth II, who apart from being Queen of UK is also Queen of Canada as well as many other countries.

This beautiful Loonie One Dollar coin is mounted in a 14 kt gold filled handmade bezel. The corrugated decorative bail is 14 kt gold filled. A special gold filled bezel wire is used to make this handmade bezel; the outside wire is rounded while the inside of the wire is grooved so that the coin fits inside the bezel. Once the bezel wire is cut, the two ends are filed then soldered together using hard gold solder, then polished. The coin then is placed within the bezel. The top of the bezel is then shaped into a loop to accommodate a gold filled bail.

The mounted coin is 26.2mm (1.03 inch) in diameter. The pendant from bail to bottom is 38.1 mm (1.5 inch). The 14 kt gold filled chain is made of oval links that are 2mm wide and 19 inches in length with a 14kt gold filled lobster claw clasp.

The one-dollar coin was introduced into circulation on June 30, 1987 as a cost-saving measure by the Government of Canada. The coin was instantly dubbed the "Loonie," after the solitary loon that graces the coin's reverse side. The nickname caught on and Canadians have been using it ever since.

The loon design was created by noted Northern Ontario wildlife artist Robert-Ralph Carmichael and was engraved by the Mint's own Terrence N.E. Smith.

The one-dollar coin is eleven sided and is produced at the Mint's Winnipeg facility, along with the rest of Canada's circulation coins. Since 1987, 1.5 billion one-dollar coins have been produced.

When introduced, Loonie coins were made of Aureate, a bronze-electroplated nickel combination. Beginning in 2007, some Loonie blanks also began to be produced with a cyanide-free brass plating process. In the spring of 2012, the composition switched to multi-ply brass-plated steel. As a result, the weight dropped from 7.00 to 6.27 grams.

This is my first order with Diane, and I am so thrilled with the whole experience- I know I will be back to shop with her again! The pieces are lovely, and the attention she gives to the whole order process is amazing, and very much appreciated! I could not believe how quickly my order arrived, and it was packed with great care! I am already eyeing some other beauties, and the fact that she really knows (in all respects) what she is doing- makes it a pleasure to say I will be a regular customer. Thank you Diane!
