•     Comes in genuine leather book-style packaging to showcase your coins with elegance!

Design:
Your coin brings together symbolic elements that reflect how the Canadian flag is perceived both at home and abroad. Occupying much of the image's field, the famous red flag—its white centre square bearing the stylized red maple leaf—billows softly in the wind at full-mast atop a flagpole. Beneath it, a backpacker stands turned to the right and gazes at the horizon beyond a landscape that is a cross-section of Canada. This traveler's journey highlights the freedom and opportunities offered by Canada to explore and grow, whether at home or abroad. And while the addition of a small Canadian flag on the backpack is a common practice for Canadian travelers, it also speaks to the respect and recognition this national symbol receives throughout the world. The flag's 50th anniversary is highlighted with a symbolic ring of 50 maple leaves.

Since it was first raised in 1965, the National Flag of Canada has come to symbolize many of the values and opportunities that have defined Canada and its people.

Did you know?
•     The adoption of a national flag was proposed as far back as the late nineteenth century, but to no avail—that is, until the idea was raised again in 1964 by Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson.
•     After much divisive debate, the National Flag of Canada was approved by Parliament in 1964. At the stroke of noon on February 15, 1965, the Canadian Red Ensign (Canada's previous flag) was lowered on Parliament Hill and replaced by the National Flag of Canada!
•     The official way to describe the flag is by explaining it as a red flag with a white square in its centre, which is adorned with a red maple leaf.
•     The design is symmetrical—if you fold the flag from one red edge to the other, both halves should be the same!
•     The maple leaf has long been used as a symbol for this country; meanwhile, red and white were featured prominently in the Canadian coat of arms, as proclaimed by King George V in 1921. Official flag etiquette requires that the National Flag of Canada never touch the ground!

    Most time's I collect the Proof set for the year and then the Special proof set and this year there were little or no difference between them. A painted flag on the Silver DollarSilver Proof set and a painted flag on the Speciall edition is not much of a change. I would go with the Fine Silver Proof Set and see if I could pick up the Quarter that has the flag painted on.

            A soldier or a backpacker?

            Great quality and display of Canadian coinage. I love the 50th celebration of Canada's flag, however whenever I see the figure of the backpacker, I frequently think it is a soldier. This confusion continues despite the fact that I know better. Am I the only one? Probably not. Mint designers and approvers should have seen this possibility and adjusted the picture accordingly.
