2 Dollars 1999 coin had a special design to commemorate the founding of Nunavut. Nunavut is the newest, largest, northernmost, and least populous territory of Canada. It was separated officially from the Northwest Territories on April 1, 1999. The creation of Nunavut resulted in the first major change to Canada's political map since the incorporation of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador in 1949.
This design appeared on all 1999 two-dollar coins produced for general circulation. In 1999 the Polar Bear design appeared only in a limited number of special coin sets produced for the collector market.
At some point of the production, the dies designed for the silver and gold version of this design were used to mint regular circulation coins. In the silver and gold version, there is no raised ring between the outer and inner core of the coin. As a result, some uncirculated sets were produced with this "mule" coin.
