Design:

Canadian heraldic artist Cathy Bursey-Sabourin has recreated Canada's 13 provincial and territorial shields on a series of jigsaw pieces that encircle a central coin to create a large, 14-part coin. Each shield is exquisitely coloured and presented in the order each province and territory entered Confederation. A garland of maple leaves visually connects the pieces and carries a ribbon with each province's and territory's year of entry into Confederation. The central coin features a selectively gold plated Centre Block of Parliament Hill with the Centennial Flame burning in the foreground. A double-date (1867-2017) flanks the Peace Tower, and its clock indicates 10:00 pm when fireworks usually begin on Canada Day.

Did you know…
  • This puzzle coin was inspired by the Centennial Flame featured on the central coin. The Centennial Flame is located just inside the Queen's Gates in the forecourt of Parliament's Centre Block. It was originally a temporary installation for Canada's centennial celebrations in 1967, but became permanent due to its popularity. The basin is made of red Canadian granite and features the bronze armorial bearings, floral emblem and year of entry for each province and territory that was part of Confederation in 1967. The water represents Canada's three oceans, and the flame burns 365 days a year as a symbolic light to lead Canada into the future.
  • Nunavut is Canada's youngest territory and was created 32 years after the Centennial, on April 1, 1999. As such, it was not part of the Centennial Flame. Nunavut also distinguishes itself by using a round shield instead of the traditional pointed shield shape.
  • This coin was designed by Canadian heraldic artist Cathy Bursey-Sabourin who has produced the artwork of some of Canada's most visible emblems.
