HAPPY 150TH ANNIVERSARY, CANADA! A powerful, modern take on tradition—one that tells our story as a nation. Order today!

From France's Marianne to the United Kingdom's Britannia, history provides numerous examples of allegorical figures that represent a powerful personification of a country's character. Where words can't do justice, these symbols carry deep meaning by embodying the strengths, ideals and virtues of a nation and its people.

This tradition is at the heart of this year's commemorative silver design, which offers a bold, modern take on a classic idea. Strongly uplifting, the beautifully engraved 150th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation coin is rich with symbolism that celebrates the story of our nation, and alludes to our ability to come together and rise to the challenges we face—yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Don't miss this limited-time opportunity to own these classic coins in 2017! Order today!

Your pure silver proof set features include:
  • THE CRÈME DE LA CRÈME OF COLLECTOR SETS! The 99.99% pure silver proof dollar with stunning gold plating makes this the crème de la crème of collector sets!
  • AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY IN THIS SET! Your proof coin is the highest quality possible. Finished with world-class frosting, the image is struck against a brilliant field as many as three times to achieve a crisp impression with outstanding detail. Special dies are hand polished and frequently replaced to maintain absolute perfection, while selective gold plating enhances the coin's focal point, Canada, by adding definition to the detailed frosting.
  • INCLUDES CLASSIC COIN DESIGNS! Canada's classic circulation coin designs will not be placed in circulation during this milestone year—the pure silver proof set is a limited opportunity to own these classic coins (polar bear, Canada's Coat of Arms, caribou, Bluenose, beaver) in 2017. Each set includes:
    • Proof dollar struck in 99.99% pure silver with selective gold plating!
    • 2-dollar (toonie) coin struck in 99.99% pure silver with selective gold plating!
    • 1-dollar (loonie) coin struck in 99.99% pure silver! Fully gold plated!
    • 50-cent, 25-cent, 10-cent and 5-cent coins, all struck in 99.99% pure silver
  • INCLUDES THE 50-CENT COIN! Your coin set includes Canada's Coat of Arms in 99.99% pure silver!
  • Your coin is among OUR BEST SELLERS EVERY YEAR since 1937! Each year, the proof dollar is one of the most sought-after coins issued by the Royal Canadian Mint. This coin is a continuation of a proud tradition that carries added meaning in 2017, as Canada celebrates 150 years.
  • POWERFULLY SYMBOLIC! Your coin features a classic allegory, but is representative of Canada in today's world. Rich in symbolism, every element of the design is representative of our story as a nation.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE: The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER! Your coins are GST/HST exempt with a limited worldwide mintage.
  • GENUINE LEATHER BOOK-STYLE! Beautifully presented in a genuine leather book-style that offers an elegant way to proudly showcase your coin.

Proof Dollar Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Rebecca Yanovskaya, your coin features a contemporary take on a classic female allegory that personifies Canada on its 150th anniversary. Every element in this complex design represents a different political, historic, geographic and social aspect—it represents our story as a nation, all conveyed by the intricate engraving and careful use of multiple finishes.

In the foreground, Canada rises up strong, majestic and bold; she bears a youthful appearance, given Canada's status as a relatively young nation. Canada is the picture of grace and a vision of strength in her protective armour; and yet, she carries no weapon—a symbolic nod to Canada's historic peacekeeping role, and our efforts to bring peace throughout the world. Her brow is wreathed with a glorious garland of poppies, much as the lyrics to O Canada affirm in French. Facing out as though looking to the future, Canada's gaze is calm and steady while her arms are open wide, ready to embrace what challenges and triumphs lie ahead. In one hand is a symbolic representation of the British North America Act, which represents the birth of the Dominion of Canada 150 years ago; in the other hand is a single feather that pays tribute to those who helped forge our nation's path: the First Nations peoples and the Fathers of Confederation. A fur cape is a further reminder of First Nations traditions, as well as the importance of the fur trade in Canada's early history.

Thirteen rays of light—one for each province and territory—shine down upon Canada, while the waves at her feet represent the oceans that surround us. The Canadian banners link air, land and sea while in the background, Mount Logan (Canada's tallest peak) represents the diversity of the land, and alludes to the ability of Canadians to "rise" to the challenges we face—yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Packaging:

Your set includes a numbered certificate with detailed coin specifications—your proof of ownership for this low mintage premium proof set and evidence that each coin has been individually inspected by our resident quality assurance specialists. Your pure silver proof set comes in an elegant genuine leather book-style packaging that complements your beautiful coins.

The 2017 pure silver proof set is a unique opportunity to own a selectively enhanced proof dollar alongside Canada's classic coinage, which will not be placed in circulation during this milestone year.

                  Attractive design of the dollar, coins in general appear to have been nicely struck. I don't expect these coins to appreciate in value--I suspect few Mint products do--but they're nice to look at.

                    The large dollar coin is truely a unique representation of Canada's history. It would have been nice to have the RCM's explanation of that history included with the set for the benefit of future generations. As a proof set for Canada's 150th year, it more then met my expectations.

                                I'm not quite certain what you're looking for exactly, but here goes:

                                There may indeed be another set without gold plating, but I'm not sure if it would be exactly what you're looking for, insofar as "to your taste". If we do, hopefully it is more in line with what you like!

                                The gold plating is 24kt gold.

                            • Q:

                              Please advise me of the actual diameter (I.e., 38 mm) of the gold plated Silver Dollar coin in the beautiful 2017 Pure Silver Proof Set just released.

                              I am interested in purchasing a Bezel for this magnificent looking dollar. It would be stunning! Naturally, this would require me ordering another full set, as my recently ordered, soon-to-arrive Silver Proof Set would no longer be intact.

                              Please advise dimensions at your earliest convenience. Might the RCM even have the correct sized Bezel available for sale? Look forward to your response.

                              Thank you.

                                The Lovely Linda!

                                We're flattered that you find the gold plated version of the Silver Dollar worthy of wearing around your neck! I'm a huge fan myself.

                                If you're looking for a bezel that fits your 36.07mm coin (to be super precise), you'll have to try a third party, unfortunately. We have 27mm and our boutique do sell other sizes, but not that large. I've seen some on the market, though. It's worth an internet search!
