Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn, your coin’s reverse is double dated (“1921 2021”) to mark the 100th anniversary of Canada’s national colours. Its selectively coloured image is an extraordinary display of patriotism: a Canadian proudly holds up the red-and-white flag of Canada as they shout their love of country from the highest mountain. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

“The Canadian flag’s bold colours and stylized maple leaf are easily recognized the world over and have come to represent qualities like kindness, tolerance and diversity. We have a deep sense of pride for our country, and it is easy to see when we’re travelling the world or cheering on our beloved sports teams and athletes.” – Steve Hepburn, Artist

I am proud to say I’m Canadian, and I’m proud of the contributions we’ve made and continue to make on a national and global scale. For these reasons and more, this image gives me goosebumps! – Libby Sim, Product Manager

“Based on suggestions dating back to 1895/96 and 1919, respectfully, both the maple leaf and our national colours of red and white (as proclaimed by King George V in 1921) were the driving force implemented by John Ross Matheson in his oversight of the final design of the National Flag of Canada.  Every Canadian should be extremely proud of our red-and-white symbol, which is recognized and respected around the world.” – Robert J. Harper, Executive Director, Canadian Flag Education Centre

Did you know?
  • The red-and-white “Maple Leaf” flag has been the National Flag of Canada since 1965. In the words of John Ross Matheson, M.P. and leader of the parliamentary flag committee, it took “many loving hands” to finalize the flag’s design, which was inspired by Canada’s national colours.
  • There are over 500,000 shades of red but only one appears on Canada’s flag. The exact colour value was recommended by a team of scientists at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), who tested and analyzed different fabric dyes before determining the most durable shade of red. This was the first time that international colour standards were applied to a national flag—a world first that happened in Canada!

Packaging:
Your coin comes in a full-colour custom folder with a removable capsule that allows for a close-up view.
