Struck in .9999 fine gold, the RCM is issuing the world’s first delta-shaped coin. 

In the gold tone of the original series’ insignia, the Delta Shield displays the elongated star symbol that identified crew assigned to command. 

The coin is scheduled for release Sept. 6. 

The obverses of all these coins feature the 2003 effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt.

The $20-for-$20 coin measures 27 millimeters in diameter and weighs 7.96 grams. It has a mintage limit of 300,000 pieces and retails for $20 Canadian.

The coin-and-stamp set has an unlimited mintage and retails for $34.95 Canadian.

The half-ounce silver $10 character coins each measure 34 millimeters in diameter. Each has a mintage limit of 12,500 pieces and retails for $54.95 Canadian.

The 1-ounce silver $20 coins measure 38 millimeters in diameter. They have a mintage limit of 11,500 per design; each retails for $109.95 Canadian. 

The gold $200 coin weighs 16.2 grams, is limited to a mintage of 1,500 coins and retails for $1,299.95 Canadian.

Distributor Talisman Coins is accepting orders in U.S. dollars for all of the coins except the gold one, with delivery of six of the coins to occur once they are released from the RCM. 

The silver $20-for-$20 coin retails for $19.95, and the coin-and-stamp set is $27.95.
