An interesting 39mm plated bronze medal with deep red and black enameling on reverse, seemingly produced by the Royal Canadian Mint to promote their "Turn Key Numismatic Programs" at foreign trade-shows. Rev: Maple Leaf at center, composed of varying gold circles, set against red background, gold text below: "0095 of 1000 / Limited Edition", gold text around circumference within narrow black enameled band: "ROYAL CANADIAN MINT - MONNAIE ROYALE CANADIENNE MINT - TURN KEY NUMISMATIC PROGRAMS"; Obv: similar smaller Maple Leaf at center right, circular RCM to right (consisting of Mint name in both official languages), text above: "FOREIGN / BUSINESS LINE", text around circumference within pebbled gold band: "INDUSTRY LEADERS / DESIGN - BLANK MAKING - COIN PRODUCTION". Production date unknown, however this is the first example of this otherwise unknown promotional issue the cataloguer has seen. Notwithstanding a seemingly healthy mintage, likely very scarce due to the international nature of its distribution. Encapsulated, housed in a plush blue box
