2017 50-CENT SPECIAL WRAP ROLLS- 157747Largely unchanged since 1959, the reverse design of Canada’s classic 50-cent coin features the Canadian Coat of Arms. The history of our nation is powerfully conveyed through each of the richly symbolic elements—particularly within the shield, where a sprig of maple leaves represents Canadians of all origins while the upper portions honour the founding nations. On one side, a lion holds a lance with the Union Jack; on the other, a unicorn holds the royal flag of France. Saint Edward’s crown above the crowned lion represents the monarch as Canada’s Head of State, while beneath it all, a scroll reads Canada’s unifying motto, “A MARI USQUE AD MARE” (From Sea to Sea). On the reverse of the special commemorative issue, Ariana Cuvin of Toronto (Ontario) has transformed a maple leaf into an eye-catching mosaic representing Confederation. The four diamond shapes connected to the stem symbolize the original provinces that formed Confederation in 1967 (Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia), while the remaining 9 shapes represent the provinces and territories that followed. Combined, they form the iconic symbol that represents unity, freedom and peace for people around the world—an ideal that is now 150 years proud! 50¢ – Canada 150 Paired with the classic design featuring the Coat of Arms of Canada, the commemorative issue bears Canadian Heritage’s official CANADA 150 logo by Ariana Cuvin of Toronto (ON). Four diamond shapes connected to the stem symbolize the original provinces of Confederation, while the 9 shapes represent the provinces and territories that followed. 50¢ – Coat of Arms of Canada Paired with the commemorative issue which bears the Canadian Heritage’s official Canada 150 logo, the reverse design of Canada’s classic 50-cent coin features the Canadian Coat of Arms. The history of our nation is powerfully conveyed through each of the richly symbolic elements.$49.95 Add to cart
2017 $15 FINE SILVER COIN GREAT CANADIAN OUTDOORS: AROUND THE CAMPFIREThe reverse design by Joel Kimmel captures the mood in an idyllic lakeside setting, where two campers are enjoying a fireside moment. Blue and purple colours dominate the landscape, where the shadowy shapes of rolling hills and dense forest rise up along the horizon. In the sky, pink hues are the last, lingering reminders of daylight, as a canopy of stars emerges overhead. Glow-in-the-dark technology re-creates the luminous shine of a full moon and its reflection on the lake, where a loon and two chicks are still visible in the moonlight. On the sandy beach, the male camper rests on a rock while the female sits on a log; both are quietly enjoying each other’s company while taking in the beauty of their surroundings. Their profiles are softly illuminated by the warm glow of the campfire “burning” bright at the centre of the coin, not far from the pitched tent that is illuminated from within. SPECIAL FEATURES
