About Sir John A. Macdonald
On July 1, 1867, the Dominion of Canada was created, and Sir John Alexander Macdonald, a key architect of Canadian Confederation, became the new nation’s first Prime Minister. Knighted by Queen Victoria for his role in Canadian Confederation, Sir John A. Macdonald led the nation until his death in 1891, with only a single interruption in his leadership, from 1873 to 1878.

John Alexander Macdonald was born on January 11, 1815, in Glasgow, Scotland. He and his family immigrated to Kingston, Upper Canada in 1820. With a successful law practice, and having held political office at the municipal level in Kingston, Macdonald joined the Upper Canada cabinet in 1847, serving as receiver general and commissioner of Crown Lands. In 1854, he entered the cabinet of the United Province of Canada, serving as Attorney General for Canada West. Taking on a heavy portfolio of legislative work and providing important legal counsel to various departments of the government, his responsibilities grew until he and George-Étienne Cartier were jointly leading the Government.

By the 1860s, it was clear that some form of constitutional change was necessary. John A. Macdonald, along with George Brown, Cartier, and their colleagues presented a vision of a united British North America to the leaders of the Maritime colonies at the Charlottetown Conference in September 1864. They ultimately achieved their goal on July 1, 1867, when the Dominion of Canada was created—with Macdonald, its key architect, as the new nation’s Prime Minister.

Macdonald’s tireless work sowed the seeds of the sovereign nation of Canada.

History moment for the grandchildrens

Every time these sets come out I try and order 3 sets for the grand children. Too bad has a regular buyer we can't be notified when these set come out! We can NOT be on this sight daily, therefore the grandchildren set is uncomplete! Not a good way to get them interested in becomming a collector!

I use my Mint purchases for my grandkids. I like the packaging but wish that they came seperate. I need to very carefully cut between the coins to keep them intact to give to several people. The clear round plastic coin holders would be great but them would increase the cost. Would like to see Loonies and Toonies done with girls in mind. Ages 2-18. ie, ballet,skating, Girl Guides, baseball, scoccer,swimming, gymnastists, girls at play, friendships,skiing,school, etc.

IN MY OPINION A VERY NICE PRESENT

It was part of my forst order that I placed with mint.ca; For a while, after a couple of months I thought that it will never be delivered, but surprise, surprise, it WAS! I love to give gifts to my friends, and it represents a Canadian Symbol despite some connotations related to the figure; Nobody is perfect...the coin is a very nice coin, and for sure next year for the Chinese New Year some of my friends will have it from me; It looks very nice, and it has history in it. I consider that it is a very nice present and/or to be kept for years from now.
