A Canada 150 masterpiece crafted in five kilograms of pure silver! Order today!

The enactment of the British North America Act is a defining moment for Canada. Shaped by the vision of the Confederation delegates to conferences in Charlottetown, Québec, and London, this constitutional act began the process of uniting British North American colonies into one political entity: the Dominion of Canada. In 1867 the founding four provinces were Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Québec.  In the years that followed others joined Confederation: Manitoba (1870), Northwest Territories (1870), British Columbia (1871), Prince Edward Island (1873), Yukon (1898), Alberta (1905), Saskatchewan (1905), Newfoundland (1949) and Nunavut (1999).

The terms of Confederation provided the framework for this new nation, which was built on the federal union of provinces. It defined Canada's executive, legislative and judicial systems, and outlined the division of power between the federal and provincial governments. In short, Confederation is the foundation for Canada as we know it today.

The 150th anniversary of Confederation represents an important milestone for Canadians from coast to coast to coast. Our country's sesquicentennial is an extraordinary opportunity to come together and reflect on our past, take pride in our shared values and achievements, and share our hopeful vision for the future.

Design:

Your 500-dollar coin is 99.99% pure silver, with a diameter of 180 millimetres and a nominal metal weight of 5,000 grams. To commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation, Canadian artist Steve Hepburn designed a collage of iconic Canadian images that represent the nation from east to west and to the north. The stirring collage captures Canada's spirit and character in 2017. These quintessentially Canadian images come together seamlessly to provide a one-of-a-kind, cross-country journey that speaks of the essence and uniqueness of Canada, our beloved "home and native land." Your coin is also engraved with the words "CANADA" and "150 YEARS/ANS" The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt, along with the coin's date, weight, purity, and denomination.

Packaging:

Your coin is housed in a circular capsule. The gorgeous burled-wood case, which bears the Royal Canadian Mint logo and wordmark, highlights and displays the exquisite artistry of your coin in the way you choose. You can display your coin inside its case—a round acrylic window in the lid is sized to the coin's dimensions. Or you can choose to display the coin in a custom frame that is included in the case. The 8x8-inch coin certificate is housed just below the display compartment in a special spring-loaded drawer. The entire interior is lined in velvet-like black flocking. The case is protected with a unique custom set-up box and is delivered in a Canadian-made Nanuk™ protective shipping case.
