YOU'VE NEVER OWNED ANYTHING QUITE LIKE IT! Order now before they're all gone!

On July 1, 2017, Canada will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation—our nation's 150th birthday! To commemorate this very special occasion, we have created a truly unique coin that could only be designed by the Royal Canadian Mint.

Applying cutting-edge ultra high relief technology to a kilogram format coin, this is our first coin to feature true-to-size recreations of circulation coin reverses and obverses from the last 150 years. Each coin featured on the reverse was specially selected to highlight key moments in Canada's history since Confederation, from the effigies of the various Kings and Queens who have reigned over our constitutional monarchy to the moments that have pressed us toward the modern era.

Featuring approximately 35 obverse and reverse images from previous and current circulation coinage, this amazing large-format coin makes the ideal canvas of purest silver. From the 100th Anniversary of Women's Right to Vote to the Victory Nickel of the Second World War, from the War of 1812 to the 50th Anniversary of the Canadian Flag, and from the Canadian Arctic Expedition to the Canadian Centennial, this amazing coin takes us on a journey through Canada's most memorable moments. Its stunning antique finish lends even more depth, detail, and patina to a design we guarantee you've never seen before.

An amazing coin for the Canadian circulation coin collector! Order today!

    Comments about The Canadian Coin Collection – Pure Silver One Kilogram Ultra-High Relief Coin – Mintage: 500 (2017):

    The pictures on the website do not do this coin justice. The ultra high relief is spectacular. The historical significance of the coin in relation to the 150th anniversary of Canada is perfect. I love showing this coin to people (when they have not seen an image before) and have them guess what design would best demonstrate the history of circulation coins in Canada. The reactions are always very positive. The antique finish is well executed and is the right choice for the overall design and concept. The price category is well aligned to collectors who want 1KG coins but do not have the appetite or budget for the gold 1KG coins. Would love to see future 1KG Silver coins designs with this level of innovation from RCM.

      This coin is a true masterpiece of the minting profession. Yes, the price is high, but so is the quality. - The coin of coins, I would say, - and I've been collecting for quite some time.

          I have never bothered to write a review of a coin before, but I made an exception this time. The most spectacular looking high relief 1 kilo silver coin ever. The RCM have outdid themselves. Truly a work of art.

                  • Q:

                    The listing says both approximatly 35 and over 35 coins are represented. It also says the modern penny is represented. I can only see 34 coins and can not see the modern penny only the 1967 penny. My question is how many coins are represented exactly? Is the modern penny present? Is the image of the actual and final coins? Thanks just making sure before I spend so much money.

                      A:

                      Hello!
                      The 34 designs on the reverse and queen on the obverse make up the 35 designs represented on this coin. The modern penny is fairly hidden underneath the 1987 Loon and Voyageur dollar. One of the fun things about this coin is holding it in your hands and looking through all the designs to see if you can spot them all!

                      Thanks!

                    Hello, I purchased one of these last month and it looked like it should start shipping on Nov 1st. Is something holding up the shipping of these beautiful coins?
