Canadian artist Laurie McGaw has created a fun and uplifting collage of the places and things that make Canada great. Clockwise from the top: hockey sticks and puck, snowflakes, polar bear, inukshuk, Parliament Hill, Canadian flag, maple syrup, lighthouse, lobster traps, toboggan, Canada goose, canoe, beaver, moose, black spruce tree, Beaver plane, salmon, wheat, cowboy boot, mountains. The elements are roughly placed in an east/west/north/south orientation to reflect their location on a Canadian map. Together, they encircle a maple leaf that is the heart of the design—and the heart of this nation. Proudly engraved with "150 YEARS/ANS".


Folder-style packaging offers an easy way to store for posterity or display with pride and share with your family and friends.

How many are being produced?


Hello Rita and thank you for asking. We are producing them on demand until we stop selling them. We do not have a specific mintage on these.


Hello. Does this coin fit any of your necklace coin frame pendant kits

tamtam red

Hi tamtam, Yes the "Pure Silver Coin - Heart of Our Nation (2017)" coin is 27 milimetres in diameter so it will fit in the "27 mm Sterling Silver Pendant Necklace-Making Kit". Here's the link to the product page:


I like the coin; however, I am disappointed with the failure to include a representation of one of our most recognizable icons and that is of the RCMP. I know that there has to be a selection process as not everything can be included on one coin. Nevertheless, I would think the boots and Stetson of the RCMP would have been a better choice than the toboggan or, maybe, could have replaced some of the lobster pots. The histories of Canada and the RCMP have gone hand-in-hand and the RCMP represent Canada coast-to-coast-to-coast.


Great comment Valerie! The artist had some challenges ensuring to capture as many icons on such a small surface and stay identifiable. If we ever do a coin that features multiple icons I will ensure to make this suggestion to my team.

Is this coin available in a set?


Hi Sue, This coin is available in the "2017 Canada 150 Most Affordable Pure Silver 3-Coin Subscription", but not in any set. Here's the link to the 3-coin subscription page;


I agree with last comment from Chris Jennings - I have been buying coins for years and was waiting for a spectacular silver coin - at least one ounce in value - I truly wish you had designed one for this 150th celebration for Canada - sadly to date - I haven't seen one that I feel truly represents this historic celebration.........and yes I would have thought there would have been at least one in the $50.00 for $50.00 - $100.00 for $100.00 or $200.00 for $200.00 range. It too has made me rethink my purchasing of coins and sadly, neither will I purchase this coin. Sincerely Joanne E. Brown/Paul W. Poehlmann


We have more Canada 150 products still to launch, so I hope there will be an option that you will love still to come. Unfortunately we don't unveil our products ahead of time. But to learn about more Canada 150 coins, please sign up for our email newsletter.

If this coin was to be purchased at a Canada Post location in person, would it come with the foldout display card for packaging?


Hi Nikki, If you were to purchase this coin at Canada Post you will get that same style packaging.

Ashley (Product Team)

Will it tarnish? If so, how should it be maintained? Can I prevent it from tarnishing?


This coin should not tarnish as it is sealed in a folder style packaging. to prevent it from tarnishing please keep it in its original packaging.

Ashley (Product Team)

I have more of a comment but includes a question as well. We are celebrating this great country's 150th year and are producing such a small coin. I have been purchasing products form you folks for years and appreciate your skills in the items. I would have thought that a coin of this significance would warrant a full ounce of silver and have a diameter size of 36-42 mm. and sell for $50-100. I have bought various 27 mm coins and accepted them for what they represented. I would love to purchase this coin, even at face value of $1 , and pay $100.00 if the specs were more suited to the importance it represents. However , carry on with your routinely fine standards. Sadly I will not purchase this coin. Respectfully Chris Jennings


Thanks for your comment Chris. We are trying to offer a wide range of coins at different sizes and price points for all Canadians to choose from. I hope you have been able to find another Canada 150 product that you love. To learn about more Canada 150 coins coming out this year, please sign up for our email newsletter.

You can purchase a roll of Canadian Silver Maple Leafs via That's what I'm handing out for Christmas presents this year. They are each 1 full ounce and for what you get (25 per roll) it works out to an affordable gift! The price is obviously "moving" (in keeping with the market). But not outrageously so. I will say from first-hand experience, that they are absolutely gorgeous. Both in size and elegant simplicity.

Nicole F., Ottawa

As a person of limited means, I would not purchase a $100 commemorative coin, but I will purchase this one because it is so affordable.

Danny Moosehead

Do these coins come in a decorative box or display?
