On July 1, 2017, Canada will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation—our nation's 150th birthday! To commemorate this very special occasion, we have created a truly unique coin that could only be designed by the Royal Canadian Mint.

Applying cutting-edge ultra high relief technology to a kilogram format coin, this is our first coin to feature true-to-size recreations of circulation coin reverses and obverses from the last 150 years. Each coin featured on the reverse was specially selected to highlight key moments in Canada's history since Confederation, from the effigies of the various Kings and Queens who have reigned over our constitutional monarchy to the moments that have pressed us toward the modern era.

Featuring approximately 35 obverse and reverse images from previous and current circulation coinage, this amazing large-format coin makes the ideal canvas of purest silver. From the 100th Anniversary of Women's Right to Vote to the Victory Nickel of the Second World War, from the War of 1812 to the 50th Anniversary of the Canadian Flag, and from the Canadian Arctic Expedition to the Canadian Centennial, this amazing coin takes us on a journey through Canada's most memorable moments. Its stunning antique finish lends even more depth, detail, and patina to a design we guarantee you've never seen before.

An amazing coin for the Canadian circulation coin collector! Order today!
