Celebrate Manitoba 150 with this 2 oz. throwback to a famous design. Order today.

The year 2020 marked the 150th anniversary of Manitoba's entry into Confederation, and we're commemorating this milestone with a special issue: a 2 oz. pure silver version of the 1970 Manitoba Centennial nickel dollar. This commemorative piece is nearly twice the size and every bit as detailed as the original issue—it even features the same effigy (by Arnold Machin) on its obverse.

"The year 2020 marked 150 years since the Manitoba Act received royal assent, paving the way for Manitoba to become Canada's fifth province. Manitoba 150 "United in Celebration – Unis dans la fête" emphasizes that our province is in the heart of the country, uniting the east and the west. The unbroken line of the logo represents our unity and the strong connection we feel to our home, uniting us as Manitobans. We are thrilled that the Mint is re-releasing the Centennial coin, depicting the Manitoba Crocus, while also now incorporating the Manitoba 150 logo, to mark our sesquicentennial in 2020." Brad Robertson, Chief of Protocol and Manitoba 150 Committee Member

A wonderful gift to celebrate and remember the 150th anniversary of Manitoba's entry into Confederation. Order today.

Special features:
  • MANITOBA 150: The year 2020 marked the 150th anniversary of Manitoba's entry into Confederation, and in honour of this milestone, we've re-created the 1970 Manitoba Centennial nickel dollar on a 2 oz. pure silver coin. Its prairie crocus design is a beautiful, symbolic tribute to the province, its history and its people!
  • HISTORIC OBVERSE: Just like the original issue in 1970, the obverse features Arnold Machin's 1964 effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
  • LASER-ENGRAVED FIELD PATTERN: Behind the effigy, the laser-engraved Manitoba 150 logo forms a cutting-edge field pattern that commemorates the anniversary.
  • A CLASSIC DESIGN! The reverse design looks nearly the same as the original coin, except for the higher face value and the double dates ("1870-2020") that reflect the anniversary.
  • A PRECIOUS METAL UPGRADE: The 1970 coin was crafted from 99.9% nickel but this piece is crafted from 2 oz. of 99.99% pure silver.
  • LARGER SIZE: This pure silver coin also weighs 62.69 g and has a diameter of 50 mm. It's much larger than the 1970 commemorative dollar, which measured 32.13 mm and weighed 15.62 g.
  • A SPECIAL CONNECTION: We're celebrating too! Winnipeg, Man., is home to our state-of-the-art facility—it's where every Canadian circulation coin has been produced since 1976—and the Royal Canadian Mint family includes many proud Manitobans!
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE: The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.

The reverse is a 2 oz.-sized reproduction of the 1970 Manitoba Centennial nickel dollar by Canadian artist Raymond Taylor. The official floral emblem of Manitoba, the prairie crocus (Anemone patens), is surrounded with the updated legend "MANITOBA 1870-2020" that commemorates the province's 150th anniversary. The obverse features a laser-engraved repeating pattern of the Manitoba 150 logo behind the historic effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin.

"I have fond memories of my grandfather sharing his passion for coins with me as a little girl. He had a few 1970 Manitoba Centennial dollars in his collection so I recognized this image right away. Coins have this way of connecting us to share memories. I look forward to hearing those amazing Manitoba stories from our visitors and sharing mine with my daughter one day." Tracey Heminger, Supervisor, Retail Operations (Winnipeg), Royal Canadian Mint 

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