2021 Canadian $50 The First 100 Years of Confederation 5 oz Fine Silver 3-Coin Set


For the first 100 years of Confederation, the story of Canada was shaped by our efforts to bridge distances and come together by means of different transportation—first by rail, then by sea, and finally, by air.

This is the story that unfolds across the three coins in our 2021 The First 100 Years of Confederation series. Each coin features a different history maker and a design that channels the spirit of the era through its perfect blend of art, history and industry. It is all tied together by the multiple effigies on the obverse, where the arrangement represents a century of rapid change and innovation in Canada.


Design:

Coin #1: An Emerging Country:
Designed by Canadian artist Glen Green, your coin's reverse highlights the importance of railways in Canadian history and the role they played in the expansion of Confederation after 1867. Art nouveau design elements surround the depiction of Engine No. 374, the 4-4-0 locomotive that hauled the first passenger train along the transcontinental railway that linked eastern and western Canada. The obverse combines five of the effigies that have appeared on Canadian coins since 1867 (clockwise, from top): the first effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Mary Gillick, with the Latin inscription "ELIZABETH II D·G·REGINA"; the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget, with the inscription "GEORGIVS VI D·G·REX"; the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. Mackennal, with the inscription "GEORGIVS V D·G·REX ET IND: IMP:"; the effigy of King Edward VII by G. W. De Saulles, with the inscription "EDWARDVS VII D·G·REX IMP:"; and the effigy of Queen Victoria by L. C. Wyon, with the inscription "VICTORIA D·G·REGINA".

Coin #2: Coming of Age
Designed by Canadian artist Glen Green, your coin's reverse features a symbol of a Canada's new-found standing on the world stage after the First World War (1914-1918). Art deco elements surround the depiction of HMCS Saguenay; built in 1931, the vesselwas one of the first warships built for the Royal Canadian Navy before the naval service's rapid expansion during the Second World War (1939-1945). The obverse combines five of the effigies that have appeared on Canadian coins since 1867 (clockwise, from top): the first effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Mary Gillick, with the Latin inscription "ELIZABETH II D·G·REGINA"; the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget, with the inscription "GEORGIVS VI D·G·REX"; the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. Mackennal, with the inscription "GEORGIVS V D·G·REX ET IND: IMP:"; the effigy of King Edward VII by G. W. De Saulles, with the inscription "EDWARDVS VII D·G·REX IMP:"; and the effigy of Queen Victoria by L. C. Wyon, with the inscription "VICTORIA D·G·REGINA".

Coin #3: Canada Takes Wing
Designed by Canadian artist Glen Green, the coin's reverse features a symbol of Canada's high stature on the world stage during the post-war years (1945-1967). Canada's famous bush plane, the de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver, is rendered in a pop art style. The obverse combines five of the effigies that have appeared on Canadian coins since 1867 (clockwise, from top): the first effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Mary Gillick, with the Latin inscription "ELIZABETH II D·G·REGINA"; the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget, with the inscription "GEORGIVS VI D·G·REX"; the effigy of King George V by Sir E. B. Mackennal, with the inscription "GEORGIVS V D·G·REX ET IND: IMP:"; the effigy of King Edward VII by G. W. De Saulles, with the inscription "EDWARDVS VII D·G·REX IMP:"; and the effigy of Queen Victoria by L. C. Wyon, with the inscription "VICTORIA D·G·REGINA".
