In 1921, in a lab in Toronto, Canada, a vital link between insulin and blood sugar was discovered, tested, and confirmed. And thus, a hugely important treatment for diabetes was developed. Today, Insulin is relied upon by millions around the globe, and their lives and well being can be traced back to Frederick Banting, and Charles Best, in that Toronto laboratory.

The Royal Canadian Mint celebrates this ground-breaking moment in medical science with this coloured $2 coin, available here in official, collector wrap mint rolls. Struck, wrapped, and shipped from the mint, every one of the 25 coins within is in absolute Mint condition - as the day they came off the presses.
