Includes Alex Colville 1967 coin designs in pure silver! Order yours today!

The year 1967 represented a momentous time in Canada's history, when the young nation enthusiastically celebrated the 100th anniversary of Confederation. As part of that year-long celebration, the Royal Canadian Mint issued a unique set of Canadian circulation coins that bore a reverse design by acclaimed artist Alex Colville. Strikingly simple but unquestionably elegant, these now-iconic coins featured animals symbolic of Canada's natural legacy, in an eloquent display of the artist's vision of the nation—a vision just as relevant today, as Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary.

The beloved 1967 Canadian Centennial coins are truly unforgettable; they are coveted collectibles that are prized for their historical value and aesthetic beauty, but also cherished for igniting the passion of many life-long coin collectors.

A perfect gift for an Alex Colville fan! Don't be disappointed, order yours today!

Design:

All seven coins are crafted in 99.99% pure silver, with each one bearing a similar reverse design as the 1967 Centennial set of circulation coins designed by Canadian artist Alex Colville. Precision engraving recreates the iconic rock dove, rabbit, mackerel, bobcat, wolf and Canada goose featured on the 1-cent, 5-cent, 10-cent, 25-cent, 50-cent and 1-dollar coins, respectively. The set also includes a $20 coin, which shines brightly thanks to the full gold plating that beautifully showcases the engraved Coat of Arms—as does the gold-plated 1-cent coin. Each coin has been carefully polished to ensure a stunning proof finish that showcases the artistry and expert craftsmanship behind this timely tribute to some of Canada's most beloved coins. The obverse features the second effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin.
