Tour-de-Force Designs!
Designed by Canadians, the engraved images on each of the five circulation coins from the My Canada, My Inspiration collection are one-year-only, exclusive to Canada’s 150th anniversary year. The set also includes a 50-cent coin bearing the official CANADA 150 logo of a maple leaf mosaic of 13 parts (one for each province and territory), which represents Confederation, and a special edition proof dollar designed by artist Jamie Desrochers. Here, the most identifiable of all Canadian symbols, the national flag, is frosted to give it an ethereal appearance - it’s a moving representation of the immense national pride that fills the air as Canadians from coast to coast to coast (represented by the map) come together to celebrate a great nation’s milestone 150th birthday!
