  • 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!

  • 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.


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.


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