Flash

30000
$34.95 CAD
 

Our second-ever triangular coin features a selective hologram!

This coin will strike a chord with all Canadians. Music lovers will quickly notice how it’s shaped like a guitar pick—the perfect tie-in to the Six String Nation Guitar.

See and hear Jowi Taylor tell the story behind the Six String Nation Guitar and Coin...

The brainchild of broadcaster Jowi Taylor, this one-of-a-kind instrument is made of wood, bone, metal and stone from across the country. Indeed, to hold the guitar is to hold Canada’s amazing history, cultures and stories in one’s hands—an amazing sense of nationhood that countless musicians and spectators have experienced since the guitar was first played on Parliament Hill during the Canada Day celebrations in 2006.

Highlights: With its unique shape and theme, this coin promises to be as popular as previous irregular-shaped coins that quickly sold out. Crafted with the distinctive specimen finish, its design evokes the beauty of a hand-crafted guitar, complete with guitar strings “resonating” inside the selective hologram.
