2021 Canadian $50 The First 100 Years of Confederation: An Emerging Country - 5 oz Fine Silver Coin
It was the era that laid the groundwork for a modern Canada. With its art nouveau look, the first coin in our three-part First 100 Years of Confederation series travels back in time for a glimpse of Canada between 1867 and 1914. These were the years in which the locomotive, like the 4-4-0 one featured on this coin, was the engine of change and the driver of progress. The completion of the transcontinental railway in 1885 ushered in a season of unprecedented growth for an emerging country, and by 1914, these ribbons of steel were wrapped around almost every aspect of life in Canada.
An outstanding start to a new series that fuses art, history and industry. Order your coin today!

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".
Your coin is individually encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
