They are the timeless scenes that have come to represent Canada: the rugged coastline; the lakes and forests that give it a wild, untamed quality; the agricultural landscape of the Prairies; the Rocky Mountains that once made the land seem unfathomable; and the Arctic emblems of “the True North strong and free.”

From one coast to another, Canadians share a common iconography that powerfully reflects our history, geography, and natural legacy. Each of these visual elements carries deep meaning; when combined together, they convey the soaring spirit of a nation, and inspire everlasting pride among the diverse people who call Canada “home.”

A great gift that represents Canada and Canadians—at home and abroad! Order your coin today!

Special features:
  • AFFORDABLE PURE SILVER COIN! The inspiring beauty of Canada shines bright in the most affordable fine silver coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint.
  • SPECIMEN FINISH! Your coin includes a striking specimen finish, a combination of brilliant and frosted relief over a lined background. No other mint in the world offers coins with this kind of finish.
  • UNIQUE FOLDER-STYLE PACKAGING! Your coin is securely enclosed in unique folder-style packaging that can either be stored for posterity or displayed with pride on a table or mantle to share with friends and family; simply pop out the easel back and it becomes a collectible piece of art! It's a meaningful legacy piece and a sure conversation-starter!
  • CRAFTED FROM 99.99% PURE SILVER! Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

Design:

Designed by Steve Hepburn, your coin presents a cross-country journey that ties together some of Canada's most iconic images—particularly those that have come to define the Canadian experience, and the landscape itself. The upper portion features that celebrated emblem of Canada's Pacific coast, the orca whale. The scene transitions smoothly to the northern coastline of the Canadian Arctic, which is represented by an inukshuk and a polar bear with cub. Beneath these are the majestic Rocky Mountains, which once made the land seem impenetrable to early European explorers. The peaks tower over the vast boreal forest on the left, which stretches across much of Canada, and the agricultural landscape of the Prairie provinces on the right, where a tractor is at work in a hay field. Atlantic Canada is represented by a Nova Scotian/New Brunswick Herring Seiner, which slightly overlaps the stirring image of a raised Canadian flag blowing in the wind. Finally, the nation's northern climate is represented by the heartwarming image of two youths playing Canada's beloved winter sport: hockey.

Did you know…
  • As the second-largest country (after Russia), Canada has the longest coastline in the world.
  • Canada also has more lakes than the rest of the world combined! Approximately 60% of the planet's lakes lie within our boundaries.

Packaging:

Folder-style packaging offers an easy way to store for posterity or display with pride and share with your family and friends.

                          Since this is a collectable coin we can use a $3 face value. The Royal Canadian Mint uses multiple face values on collectable coins.

                          Unfortunately a 2 dimensional image does not look like the coin does in real life and therefore it looks darker due to lighting. The video of this coin shows a better representation of the finishes.
