The "Security" 2 dollars coins are manufactured at the Mint's facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba using the same patented multi-ply plated steel (MPPS) technology from which Canada's lower denomination circulation coins have been made since 2001. This technology, by which a steel core is plated with alternating layers of different metals such as copper, nickel and brass, employs far less metals than alloy coins and produces highly cost-effective circulation coins. These 2 dollars circulation coins also incorporates new, visible security features which further enhance the security and integrity of Canada's coinage system. The reverse (or tails side) features a laser mark micro-engraving and also a virtual image and edge-lettering.

Shannon's bell is currently on display in Halifax at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.
