A unique souvenir to mark Canada's 150th birthday! Order today!

From coinage to Canada's national flag, the maple leaf is woven into the very fabric of this nation's history reaching back to the 1700s. In 1858, when the first pennies were struck for the Province of Canada, maple leaves dominated the design. In 1920, an updated motif reduced the number of leaves from 16 to two; and in 1937, the maple twig you see on this coin made its debut—a bold move when the Dominion of Canada created its own designs to reflect its growing sense of nationhood.

Today, the same design that defined the Canadian penny for over 75 years continues to inspire, five years after its retirement from circulation. This commemorative counterpart is twice the size of the original, and is struck in 99.99% pure silver. It's a timeless keepsake to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday that will shine with pride—today and tomorrow!

Affordable and upscale—a cherished heirloom to last generations! Order today!

Great coin in a cheap cardboard package & plastic film

I would not give this to an adult in the cheap package. A nice product, packaged poorly, is always a disappointment.

A wonderful design that resembles the 1 Cent, to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Canada. The coin is large enough to really enjoy the design and detail of the maple leaves.

Chad

is this coin encased in plastic? I don't see it written in the description and the picture does not display one.

Krys

Hi Krys, Yes, all our collector coins are encapsulated. We are starting to provide photography of our coins in and out of their capsules as many new customers are asking the same question. Thank you for your comment.

Item 156296 Compare the size of this item to the size of a Loonie (Canadian).

kenneth

Hi Kenneth, The Canadian Maple Leaves 1/2 oz. Pure Silver Coin (2017) has a diameter of 34mm and weight of 15.87 grams. So it's significantly larger than the $1 (loonie) coin that has a diameter of 26.5mm and weight of 6.27 grams.
