The coin is edged in maple leaves, English roses and shells from Prince Harry’s coat of arms. It also features three Swarovski crystals to represent Markle’s three-stone engagement ring.

It costs $104.95 and can be ordered from the mint’s online store at www.mint.ca and by phone at 1-800-267-1871. The coin has a limited mintage of 15,000.

The mint says they will also soon be available at its stores in Ottawa and Winnipeg, at some Canada Post outlets and through its network of dealers and distributors.

The commemorative design is by Joel Kimmel of Westport, Ont. The other side features an effigy of the Queen by Vancouver artist Susanna Blunt.
