Product Description

Celebrating Canada's 150th anniversary, this year's annual Double Dollar Proof Set is struck completely in 99.99% pure silver and features a 24-karat gold-plated silver dollar (available only in this set) celebrating celebrating 150 years since Confederation in 1867!

• This proof set contains the 6 classic Canadian circulating coin designs (loonie, toonie, beaver nickel, etc.), unlike the other, 2017 special edition proof set, in addition to the exquisitely beautiful commemorative silver dollar personifiying Canada!

As Canada marks its 150th anniversary, the annual Double Dollar Proof Set for 2017 represents a heartfelt celebration of what it means to be Canadian. The annual proof silver dollar shows Miss Canada in all her glory! Strong, wise and hopeful, the goddess Canada embodies the ideals and aspirations of a nation that has proudly come into its own since its creation in 1867. Through the symbolic female figure gloriously depicted, this proof silver dollar presents a powerful personification of Canada - of her history, her people and her spirit. The figure of Canada is the visual embodiment of a nation that is today celebrating its 150-year journey, while looking ahead to the future.

All this makes the 2017 gold-plated edition of the low-mintage (only 20,000) annual pure silver dollar (found only in this set, and nowhere else) a must-have work of art for silver dollar collectors and lovers of all things Canadian! So it's understandable why we're so excited to bring you this amazingly beautiful silver dollar proof set celebrating Canada's 150th birthday!

A Tour-de-Force Commemorative Silver Dollar Design!
The design by Canadian artist Rebecca Yanovskaya features a contemporary take on a classic female allegory that personifies Canada on her 150th anniversary. Every element in this complex design represents a different political, historic, geographic and social aspect - it represents the story of a nation, conveyed by the intricate engraving and careful use of multiple finishes.

Canada 2017 Gold-Plated Silver Proof Dollar Featuring Allegorical Miss Canada In the foreground, the goddess Canada rises up strong, majestic and bold. She bears a youthful appearance, given Canada’s status as a relatively young nation. Canada is the very picture of grace and a vision of strength in her protective armor. She carries no weapon, a symbolic nod to Canada’s historic peacekeeping role, and our efforts to bring peace throughout the world. Her brow is wreathed with a glorious garland of poppies, much as the lyrics of O Canada affirm in French. Facing outward as though looking to the future, Canada’s gaze is calm and steady while her arms are open wide, ready to embrace what challenges and triumphs lie ahead. In one hand she holds the British North America Act, which represents the birth of the Dominion of Canada 150 years ago. In her other hand is a single feather that pays tribute to those who helped forge our nation’s path: the Native American peoples and the Fathers of Confederation. A fur cape is a further reminder of Native American traditions, as well as the importance of the fur trade in Canada’s early history. This representation of fur clothing in no way condones the slaughter of innocent animals for human profit; one should not wear real fur. Faux fur is just as attractive, much less expensive, and the moths won't eat it.

Back to our allegory. Thirteen rays of light (one for each province and territory) shine down upon Canada, while the waves at her feet represent the oceans (Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic) that surround the Great White North. The Canadian flags link air, land and sea, while in the background, Mount Logan (Canada’s tallest peak, and the namesake of the X-Men character Wolverine) represents the diversity of the land, and alludes to the ability of Canadians to “rise” to the challenges we face - yesterday, today and tomorrow.
