A most unusual 1995 Proof Set of 7 coins, black-cased format as issued however with fully-customized embossment. Outer spine has the usual embossed date of "1995" though in gold lettering, while front case cover depticts gold-foil imprint of what appears to be the Ceremonial Mace of the Speaker of the House of Commons at center, with imprinted name "Jean-Guy Potvin" at bottom. While we can find no immediate connection between this name and either the Royal Canadian Mint or Parliament, this is clearly a custom-crafted casing for some form of notable presentation, and is undoubedly unique. A nice prize for the collector of RCM packaging varieties
