DESIGN
Designed 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.
