This low mintage coin is the second in a series of three important historical 10 troy ounce legal tender pieces creating three famous Canadian Confederation medals. Each medallic proof features a landmark along the path of Canadian history: Canadian Confederation of 1867, the 1927 Diamond Jubilee of Canadian Confederation, and the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation in 2017.

Investment Opportunity!On July 1, 1927, the Dominion of Canada marked 60 years of progress under the banner of Confederation. To commemorate the occasion, the Diamond Jubilee of the Confederation of Canada Medal was issued as a special presentation piece that expressed a nation’s pride and identity on its Diamond Jubilee. As we celebrate 150 years of Confederation, the Royal Canadian Mint travels back in time to revisit another historic year - a distant predecessor to Canada's 150th Anniversary - through a magnificent artefact that is part of our medallic history.

A Highly Symbolic, Allegorical Medal!
This huge, ten troy ounce pure silver proof is a faithful tribute to the original 1927 table medal. Inspired by a general design by Canadian illustrator Charles William Jefferys, the design is recreates the original (1927) design by Raymond Delamarre.

With arms spread wide to physically depict Canada’s official motto, Ad Mari Usque Ad Mare (“From sea to sea”), a robed female figure is engraved in high relief as a symbol of a young nation’s strength. She is an allegory, Miss Canada, representing her great nation as she stands among sheaves of wheat that signify growth and prosperity across Canada, which is also represented by the clusters of maple leaves at her feet. Behind her, a map of the Dominion of Canada is marked by transcontinental railroad links and the shield from Royal Arms of Canada (as it appeared in 1927). The combination of different finishes enhances the design, while a circular frame bears the engraved words CANADA and A MARI VSQVE AD MARE, the face value 100 DOLLARS and the commemorative dates 1867 and 2017.

The reverse features the dual effigies of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt and Her Majesty Queen Victoria by Leonard Charles Wyon. The reverse also includes the cypher used by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and the cypher that was used by Queen Victoria. Each cypher is topped with a crown depicted in a style specifically used by each monarch.
