Special features:
  • THE BICENTENNIAL OF THE 49TH PARALLEL! Your circulation 6-coin set celebrates Canada while commemorating the 200th anniversary of a famous boundary—the 49th parallel.
  • ONLY AVAILABLE AS PART OF THIS SET! Your 6-coin set includes a special edition 50-cent coin that glows in the dark—and it's only available as part of this set. In the dark, glow-in-the-dark technology lights up the whole map, along with the latitude and longitude lines!
  • GLOW-IN-THE-DARK TECHNOLOGY ON YOUR 50-CENT COIN! Your 50-cent coin combines engraving, colour, and glow-in-the-dark technology—three technologies on one coin! To activate the effect, hold the coin set under a light source for 30-60 seconds, and then view the 50-cent coin in darkness.
  • ONE OF EVERY DENOMINATION! Your set also features one of every denomination in circulation in 2018: $2, $1, 25-cent, 10-cent, and 5-cent coins.
  • NONE OF THESE COINS HAVE BEEN CIRCULATED! These are new coins that were taken directly from the press at our Winnipeg facility and packaged together in this special 6-coin set.
  • READY TO DISPLAY WITH PRIDE! All six coins are packaged together in a colourful presentation card with a built-in support flap that turns it into an instant display.

Design:

On your special-edition 50-cent coin, the image by Steve McPhee features the red-and-white flag of Canada, which is superimposed over all of Canada on an outline map. An engraved line highlights the International Boundary known as the 49th parallel, which marks its bicentennial in 2018. In the dark, glow-in-the-dark technology lights up the whole map, along with the latitude and longitude lines. The reverse includes the engraved word "CANADA" and the commemorative dates "1818 – 2018". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • The Convention of 1818 was a treaty between Great Britain and the United States:
    It stipulated that the western boundary between British North America and the United States should follow the 49th parallel from Lake of the Woods to the Rocky Mountains (known to many English speakers as the "Stony Mountains" at the time). But it divided more than Americans and British North Americans: the international boundary also transected the ancestral lands of several First Nations.
  • The boundary was extended to the Pacific in 1846:
    The Oregon Treaty of 1846 extended the land boundary to the Strait of Georgia, but it gave rise to a dispute over the sea boundary between the mainland and Vancouver Island. This dispute was settled by international arbitration in 1872.
  • By the numbers:
    Total length of the International Boundary between Canada and the United States: 8,891 km (the longest land border shared by two countries).
  • A few other Canadian boundaries defined by longitude or latitude:
    • The 60th parallel north forms the mainland boundary between four Canadian provinces (British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba) and the territories (Nunavut, Yukon and Northwest Territories).
    • The 120th meridian west forms the northern border between British Columbia and Alberta (but the southern portion follows the Continental Divide).
  • Where in the world...
    Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, France's busiest airport, sits on the 49th parallel north, which also runs through the region of Normandy.

Packaging:

All six coins are packaged together in a colourful presentation card with a built-in support flap that turns it into an instant display.

Gifts for my grandkids mostly to replace too many toys.

Gifts to the young to promote collecting or possible example of value increases or not.

I found this to be a unique set of coins. Love the glow in the dark 50 cent coin. They are a keepsake for someone like myself who does not always buy all the coins, but just some special sets.

Disappointed, and mislead!

I got excited to have a new 50 cent coin for the collection, but it's not a coin, it's a piece of gift ware. It's much bigger than a "circulation" 50 cent coin, and not very attractive. This set is 5 circulation coins, and one piece of gift ware; not 6 circulation coins as advertised. I was so disappointed, I sent mine back; first time I ever returned an item to the mint.

Shipping charges should not apply because I can buy some of the coins at the post offices without mailing charges. Also the precious metal coins are over priced.

Can these coins be cashed in for face value in the future

none

Hello and thank you for asking. These coins are circulation coins and can be used when making a purchase. The 50-cent piece is a circulation coin but is hardly ever used anymore.

Chantal

Can the coins be removed from the presentation card?

Jewell

Hello and thank you for asking. The coins can be removed from the collector card.

Chantal

Is there a different finish on the reverse of the coins of the collector card - "the 49th parallel" and why is this not mentioned in the description of the finish?

none

Hello and thank you for asking. All coins have a uncirculated finish both on the reverse and obverse of the coins.
