The Royal Canadian Mint and Canadian Coinage
The Royal Canadian Mint and Canadian Coinage
  • Softcover book by Dr. James A. Haxby
  • Second edition, 1986
  • First edition, 1984
  • Over 290 pages

The back of the book says:
" This is a book of history.
It begins centuries ago, before the idea of the Mint was even conceived,
when trading was done with furs, and coins were in short supply. "

" It takes us to the turn of the twentieth century when nationalism created the demand
for a Canadian mint and brings us to the present day, and the stories behind our
modern circulating coins and special issues. "

" A few of the remarkable stories hidden in the pages of " Striking Impressions "

  • The debates which led to the establishment of the Royal Canadian Mint
  • The rush for gold in B.C. and the Klondike
  • The Mint's production of gun parts during World War I
  • The public hoarding of tombac alloy during World War II
  • The expansion of the Mint's realm to include minting for other nations "

" Striking Impressions, written by Dr. James A. Haxby to fill a notable gap in numismatic literature, is striking in its detail, striking in its scholarship, and most all, striking in its readability. "

" Dr. James A. Haxby has maintained a keen interest in the Royal Candian Mint and Canadian coinage, dating back to the 1950s.
His interest came first as a private collector, then as Deputy Curator of Canada's National Currency Collection at the Bank of Canada in Ottawa, where he played an important role in producing the National Currency Museum.
More recently, Dr. Haxby has been working as a freelance currency historian and numismatic consultant. "
