Low mintage for such an amazing design! Order now before they're all gone!

Canada has seen a world of change since Confederation in 1867—and from its prominent place on Canada's coins, the proud maple leaf has borne silent witness to it all! In preparation for Canada's 150th anniversary, the Royal Canadian Mint pays homage to a well-loved symbol of national pride, identity and spirit, by revisiting the maple leaf's depiction on a young nation's first circulation coins.

Kick off the celebrations for Canada's 150th anniversary with a distinctive coin that offers a snapshot of Canadian history! Don't be disappointed, order today!

Special features:
  • CONTEMPORARY RECREATION! A contemporary recreation of the original design that graced Canada's first circulation coins 150 years ago.
  • SIMILAR FONT AND LAYOUT FROM ORIGINAL! Commemorative dates "1867-2017" are all engraved in a similar font and layout as the original Confederation-era coin designs creating a wonderfully nostalgic feel!
  • LOW MINTAGE OF ONLY 250 COINS! Order today before these coins are all gone!
  • ONE OUNCE OF 99.99% PURE GOLD! Crafted in one ounce of 99.99% pure gold, your coin is GST/HST exempt!

About the Design:

Your coin pays tribute to the original design that graced Canada's early circulation coins. Bound together by a bow at the bottom of the reverse, two crossed maple boughs gently curve upwards along the coin's perimeter. Cutting-edge sculpting and finishing techniques recreate each of the 21 maple leaves in breathtaking detail, as they lead the eye towards a current creation of the Royal Crown
(St. Edward's Crown) at the very top. The reverse's text elements offer added authenticity to this nostalgic nod to Canada's past, with the face value "200 DOLLARS," the word "CANADA" and the commemorative dates "1867-2017" all engraved in a similar font and layout as the original Confederation-era coin designs.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
