  • 99.99% PURE SILVER! Your coin is GST/HST exempt with a limited worldwide mintage.

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.

                      I bought one for a gift and after seeing it decided to buy one for myself as well. I was surprised that an earlier reviewer said it showed nothing to do with Canada 150 as it clearly shows the stylized 150 maple leaf on the box and the years 1867-2017 on the coin. All in all I think it's a lovely coin.

                        • Q:

                          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?

                            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.

                            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.

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