2017 LIMITED EDITION SILVER DOLLAR PROOF SET CANADA 150: OUR HOME AND NATIVE LAND- 159428Designed by Canadians for Canadians, the engraved images on each reverse are exclusive for Canada’s 150th anniversary year—including those of the five circulation coins from the My Canada, My Inspiration collection. The $2 coin, Dance of the Spirits, celebrates the wonders of Canada through its depiction of paddlers gliding across a placid lake under the shimmering curtain of the aurora borealis. The $1 circulation coin, Connecting a Nation, pays tribute to the railways that have brought our country together—and the many impressive landmarks along Canada’s rail routes. The 25-cent coin, Hope for a Green Future, shares a child’s hope for Canada’s abundant nature to be preserved for years to come, through a pair of hands that bring life to a plant that connects all living things. The 10-cent coin, Wings of Peace, captures our spirit of peacekeeping in a stylized design featuring an iconic maple leaf in the beak of a dove. The 5-cent coin, Living Traditions, reimagines the quintessential Canadian beaver in the traditional style of the northeastern woodland Algonkian tribes, thus celebrating 150 years of cultures meeting, sharing and evolving together. The set also includes a 50-cent coin bearing the official CANADA 150 logo of a maple leaf mosaic, and the set’s centrepiece: a limited edition 99.99% pure silver proof dollar. Designed by Canadian artist Jamie Desrochers, the background features an engraved micro-pattern of thousands of maple leaves that are curved to create the feeling that the coin is a globe, along with a map of Canada to bring the focus on our nation. Engraved above it is the number “150”, whose large size conveys the significance of this milestone year, while the application of red colour echoes that of our nation’s flag. The words “CANADA”, “DOLLAR” and the commemorative dates “1867-2017” are also engraved below in Heritage Canada’s official font for the occasion, along with the CANADA 150 logo. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.$92.45 Add to cart
ZODIAC SERIES: GEMINI – 159159The reverse design by Canadian artist Simon Ng offers an artistic tribute to Dragon Boat Festival through the skilful fusion of ancient symbolism, traditional art elements and modern minting techniques. The lower portion of the coin is dominated by foam-tipped waves—an auspicious pattern that also adds a sense of motion to the design. In fact, curved lines are present throughout this water-themed design, including the dragon’s mane that evokes the sensation of wind and movement. Engraved in ultra-high relief for added depth and dimension, the serpentine spirit emerges from the water in a way that mimics the shape of a dragon boat, with its neck curved like a boat’s gunwale. The dragon’s features are resplendent in colourful hues of red, gold, green and blue, culminating in the blue pearl held tight in its jaw as a symbol of wisdom, and the active yang aspect of qi—the life force that surrounds us. The reverse includes the engraved year “2017”, the word “CANADA” and the face value, “25 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.$42.35 Add to cart

2017 $10 FINE SILVER COIN CELEBRATING CANADA’S 150TH: PEYTO LAKE- 155072Based on a photograph by Canadian nature photographer Missy Mandel, the reverse features vibrant colour over detailed engraving that showcases the famous mountain landscape of Banff National Park. The viewpoint from the Bow Summit Lookout affords a sweeping view of the forested valley below, where the partly clouded sky has cast shadows over the terrain. Sunlight shines through the clouds and enhances the colourful appearance of Peyto Lake, which steals the spotlight with its dreamlike, turquoise hue. The glacier-fed waters are nestled among the Rocky Mountains, where snow-capped peaks add a majestic quality to the scenery as they seemingly rise up to touch the sky. The reverse also features the engraved word “CANADA” and the dates “1867-2017” to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.$40.04 Add to cart
