A FIRST! A selectively gold-plated, pure silver piedfort coin! Order today!

The beaver and the maple leaf are the defining images of a nation: one speaks of the past, when the fur trade helped shape a nation; the other predates the flag as an emblem of this land, its people, and our hope for the future. The Royal Canadian Mint reflects on a nation's 150-year journey—and beyond—through the fusion of two iconic symbols that continue to inspire admiration by proudly representing all that is Canada.

Ideal for your piedfort or Canadiana coin display! Order today!

Special features:
  • A FIRST! A selectively gold-plated, pure silver piedfort coin!
  • A PIEDFORT! Your piedfort coin is heavier and almost about twice the thickness of a standard coin!
  • A DISTINCTLY CANADIAN CELEBRATION! Two proud national symbols combine to represent Canada's past, present, and future in one outstanding design.
  • THE BEAVER AND THE MAPLE LEAF! The design fuses traditional imagery with contemporary depictions of long-standing Canadian icons: the beaver and the maple leaf.
  • OUTSTANDING LEVEL OF DETAIL! Your coin features an outstanding level of detail—as seen in the texture of the beaver's fur and the maple leaf's veins.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
  • LOW MINTAGE: Only 7,000 coins will be made available worldwide. Hurry and order yours today before they are all gone!
  • ONE-OUNCE 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN! Your coin is GST/HST exempt!

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, your coin carries great meaning on this 150th anniversary of Confederation, by paying tribute to Canada's evolving history through the two foremost national icons. A transition marks the centre of the field, with classic depictions on the left to represent the nation's past (1867), and more contemporary versions on the right to represent both the present (2017) and beyond. Both icons are resplendent in selective gold plating. Foremost is the beaver, the industrious mammal that is symbolizes Canada's sovereignty. Its tail and back half are texturally detailed, as it has appeared on previous coin designs, while the front portion transitions into a stylized silhouette that offers a more modern take on this Canadian icon. Behind it is the iconic maple leaf, whose serrated edges and deeply veined lobes are fixtures throughout the design. The left features a more natural and life-like appearance that evokes the reverse of the beloved Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coin, while the right portion places a strong emphasis on symmetry and conveys a sense of strength.

Packaging:

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

                                      Hi Willie,

                                      The word piedfort literally means "strong foot" in French and appeared centuries ago to mean "heavy measure" in minting. Coin-makers deliberately made their die templates thick and heavy to ensure these heavier coins would not be confused with regular coins. Today, piedfort indicates that your coin is thicker than usual.
