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 these two special $2 coins. Bearing the same design, one coin ha been deftly coloured and the other remains in Mint state.

Taken from torn mint rolls, each coin, in each pair, is in guaranteed Uncirculated quality.
