In the French version of O Canada, the poignant line "Ton histoire est une épopée" (Your history is an epic) alludes to the great lessons and legacy of the past, which has helped define Canada as a hopeful, strong and steadfast nation. Its 150-year history is personified by the allegorical figure on the coin, where Canada carries the legacies of the Fathers of Confederation and the First Nations peoples while stretching out her arms to welcome whatever the future brings.

Designed by Canadian artist Rebecca Yanovskaya, your coin introduces a contemporary take on a classic female allegory that personifies Canada on its 150th anniversary.

Within this complex and richly symbolic design, every element represents a different political, historic, geographic and social aspect of Canada's story as a nation.

In the foreground, Canada rises up strong, majestic and bold, with a youthful appearance that reflects Canada's status as a relatively young nation. Clad in protective armour, she is the picture of grace and a vision of strength as her arms are open wide, ready to embrace what lies ahead.

Fittingly, she stands on a plinth bearing the words HISTORIA TUA EPOS EST—a Latin translation of the line "Ton histoire est une épopée" (Your history/story is an epic) from the French version of O Canada. One hand holds a symbolic representation of the British North America Act, 1867, which marked the birth of the Dominion of Canada 150 years ago; in the other hand, a single feather pays tribute to those who helped forge our nation's path: the First Nations peoples and the Fathers of Confederation.

A wreath of poppies adorns her head, while a fur-trimmed cape is a reminder of First Nations traditions, and the importance of the fur trade in Canada's early history. Perhaps tellingly, Canada carries no weapon—a nod to Canada's peacekeeping traditions, and our contributions to peace throughout the world.

In the background, the Canadian flags are positioned in a way that resembles unfurled wings; this creates an impression that Canada is a nautical figurehead, steering the course through the often-turbulent waters of history. Behind her is Mount Logan, our tallest peak; it reflects the diversity of the land but also alludes to the ability of Canadians to "rise" to the challenges we face.

The obverse features the effigies of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt and Her Majesty Queen Victoria by Leonard Charles Wyon. The obverse also includes the royal cypher used by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and a cypher used by Queen Victoria. Each royal cypher is ensigned with a crown depicted in a style specifically used by each monarch.

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a Canada 150 beauty box.
