Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco, your coin features a coloured and engraved Canadian flag set against a backdrop of exploding fireworks. In the foreground, the dynamically flowing flag, viewed from slightly below, rises high into the sky above. It is engraved and painted in red and white. In the background, vast sprays of fireworks fill the sky. The fireworks are coloured in dazzling colours overlaid with glow-in-the-dark colouring that reveals even more excitement in the dark. The reverse is engraved with the words "CANADA" and "FINE SILVER 9999 ARGENT PUR", the face value of "5 DOLLARS", and the commemorative dates "1867-2017". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • The idea of Canada Day and official fireworks displays just naturally go hand-in-hand for most Canadians today. But the massive fireworks displays held in all of Canada's major cities on July 1 are actually a relatively new phenomenon—they started in 1981. There have been fireworks on Parliament Hill for many decades, but the official cross-Canada fireworks tradition only began in the 1980s.
  • Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has been in Canada for two Canada Day celebrations: for Canada's centennial in 1967 and for Canada's 143rd birthday in 2010. Her grandson, Prince William, participated in Canada Day celebrations in 2011.

Your coin comes packaged in a festively designed folder that showcases the coin against a background of bright fireworks with the title "PROUDLY CANADIAN".
