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

Reviews

Garbage Coins, sure aren't like they used to be!

These coins which I ordered many sets of for gifts embarrasses me over the quality, the packaging and the excessive costs. I never realized the Canadian mint was the worst place to order from. The time it takes you people to send out an order is a joke. I still have one more set coming and when I phoned yesterday I was told it won't be delivered till sometime in October! What a joke.I will never order coins from you again, PERIOD!

what is she holding?

Em the awesome

On the left, she's holding a feather. On the right, a symbolic representation of the British North America Act.

I do not understand why we have a Female "Goddess of Liberty" Angel on Canada's 150th Anniversary Coin? I would have thought something like the Fathers of Confederation or Canada's first Parliament Buildings? Could someone please explain the significance of the selected image?

CoinCanuck

CoinCanuck, As mentioned in the copy on the site, we're choosing to show the female allegory for Canada (sometimes known as Miss Canada), like Britannia (UK), Marianne (France) and yes, Lady Liberty in the US. A lot of countries have a female allegory to represent them. Ours is uniquely Canadian. I strongly suggest you read the text above to see the levels of symbolism! Also - I recommend looking up the interesting history of "Miss Canada" as an allegory...it's interesting to see how she's come of age.

What were the other two coins?

Hi postaclerk, The two other pure silver proof dollar coins that sold out were; "Special Edition Proof Silver Dollar - Our Home and Native Land (2017)" item # 158838 and the "Proof Fine Silver Dollar - 150th Anniversary of the Transatlantic Cable (2016) " item # 149997.

Chad

Is the figure depicted on this coin male, female?

DM

Hi DM, She's a lady! The allegory is female, to honour past depictions of Canada...especially in the Art Nouveau style.

Jamie (Product Team)

Female

I think it is the Goddess of Justice who overlooks Canada, as the Goddess of Liberty overlooks the USA.

Jeannie

a female

Em the awesome

In my opinion, the face in the figure is that of a male, wearing a peculiar non-gender head covering, while the female body below creates the impression of a woman.
