In 1976, the nation of Canada hosted the Olympics for the first time in its history. The 1976 Montreal Games was the 21st installment of the Summer Olympics and was funded, in part, in a very unique manner. The federal government of Canada directed the Royal Canadian Mint to issue silver and gold bullion coins to help raise funds to cover the expense of hosting the games. Now, 1976 Canadian $10 Olympic Silver Coins are available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion.

Montreal was awarded the 21st Summer Olympics in 1970 and the Canadian government under Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau ordered the Royal Canadian Mint to help raise funds through the issuance of silver bullion and gold bullion coins. The silver coins in this series offered $5 and $10 options on 28 releases with seven different design concepts.
Each of the silver coins in this series features .925 silver content. The Royal Canadian Mint developed a release schedule that included two $5 and two $10 silver coins per concept release, with 1973 featuring just one concept release and each of the years from 1974 to 1976 featuring two concept releases. No two $5 or $10 silver coins in the series shared the same design element on the reverse.
On the obverse of all 1976 Canadian $10 Olympic Silver Coins is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in a right-profile design created by Arnold Machin and captures the Queen at the age of 39. The coins include inscriptions of “Elizabeth II,” the maple leaf, “Canada,” and the date mark.
The reverse side of the coins include varying designs. Among the designs you could find on these coins include the four images offered on the 1976 $10 Silver Canadian coins. Possible options include Field Hockey and Soccer, as well as the Olympic Stadium and Olympic Velodrome.
