Full of symbolic meaning, the Arms of Canada are present in the everyday lives of Canadians through their depiction on Canadian currency, passports, official publications and more. This national symbol has undergone only a few artistic changes since it was first proclaimed by King George V on November 21, 1921. Combining the official symbols of France and Great Britain, as well as Canada's iconic maple leaf, the Arms herald the history and values of our nation to the world.

A gorgeous design, one you will display proudly in your collection. Don't be disappointed, hurry and order yours today before they're all gone!

Special features:
  • SELECTIVE GOLD PLATING ON BOTH SIDES! Artfully crafted from one kilogram of 99.99% pure silver, with selective gold plating that adds a timeless elegance to the reverse and obverse.
  • A NATIONAL SYMBOL CELEBRATES ITS 95TH ANNIVERSARY! Your coin is a timeless celebration of Canada, its proud people, history, and heritage all depicted through this distinguished national symbol.
  • STRUCK BETWEEN 2 TO 4 TIMES! Kilogram coins are usually struck between 2 to 4 times, with weight in excess of 800 tonnes to achieve the levels of relief and brilliant field that are seen in your coin.
  • RANGE OF MATTE AND SPARKLING SHADES! Your coin's design features an outstanding amount of engraved details, all skillfully enhanced through polishing techniques that produce a range of matte and sparkling shades of pure silver.
  • 1-KILOGRAM 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN! Your coin is GST/HST exempt!
  • LOW MINTAGE: Only 500 coins will be made worldwide.

Design:

The selectively gold-plated reverse features a faithfully detailed reproduction of the Arms of Canada, as drawn by Cathy Bursey-Sabourin, Fraser Herald at the Canadian Heraldic Authority. At the centre is the shield; in the upper quadrants lie the three royal lions of England, the royal lion of Scotland, the harp of Ireland and the royal fleurs-de-lis of France, while the bottom portion features a sprig of three maple leaves to represent Canadians of all origins. On either side of the shield are the supporters, which are based on those of the Royal Arms of the United Kingdom: to the left is a lion holding a lance with the Union Jack, while at right is a unicorn (a royal symbol of Scotland) holding the royal flag of France. The circlet behind the shield reads “DESIDERANTES MELIOREM PATRIAM” (They desire a better country), while above the shield is the royal helmet draped with a mantle representing maple leaves. Atop the royal helmet is the crest set on a wreath of twisted white-and-red cloth, and is comprised of a crowned lion holding a maple leaf in its right paw. Above the crest is the royal crown that represents the monarch as Canada's Head of State. At the base of it all lies a garland of floral emblems—the English rose, the Scottish thistle, the Irish shamrock and the French lily—beneath a scroll that reads the motto of Canada, “A MARI USQUE AD MARE” (From sea to sea). The reverse includes the engraved face value “250 DOLLARS”, the word “CANADA” and the year “2016”.

Packaging:

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

        Comments about One Kilogram Pure Silver Coin – The Arms of Canada – Mintage: 500 (2016):

        I am speechless as the beauty of this coin is beyond words. Makes me consider only buying kilos from now on. Just spectacular. The gold plating makes the intricate engraving pop. IF I had a criticism it is that many recently arrived coins have dust and scratches on the inside of the air-tite capsule distracting from full enjoyment of coin. Not sure if there is a solution as I do not want to disturb the seal in attempt to clean them.

            the mirror like finish enhances the fine detail of the image and the gold plating defines it even more. opening the display box is a real treat as the coin sparkles in the light. the display box that comes with the coin is much nicer than the one pictured on the mints web site which makes this purchase a very pleasant experience. nice job !

                    The Coat of Arms of Canada has to be one of the most intricate designs ever to be engraved on a coin. This coin looks awesome.
