The map of North America is a veritable history book on the societal evolution of the continent. With place-names that can be traced to a multitude of European and Aboriginal cultures, it reveals the diversity of people who played a role in this epic tale that spanned centuries—the French, British, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Danish and First Nation peoples.

Arguably one of the most defining moments in Canada’s history, the Seven Years War (1756-1763) was the world’s first global conflict extending far beyond North America to Europe, India and Africa. Your coin maps the legacy of the war while celebrating the 250th anniversary of the end of the Seven Years War.
