We love this 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!

Get your historic proof silver dollar quickly! Every year the special edition silver dollars sell out. This Special Edition silver dollar celebrates Canada's 150th birthday. With vibrant red enamel and a mintage of just 10,000, it will sell all the more rapidly as a result. The similarly-themed 2017 Double Dollar Proof Set has already sold out at the Mint!

A Tour-de-Force Design!

The design by Canadian artist Jamie Desrochers captures the celebratory spirit of the great nation of Canada in 2017. Viewed from a unique perspective, the map of Canada has a distinctive dimensional feel to it as the viewer’s eye sweeps across the nation from coast to coast. The focal point is the huge “150” at the center. Enhanced with vibrant red enamel and superimposed on the map, the “150” is as large as the nature of the celebrations commemorating the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Below it, the words CANADA, DOLLAR and commemorative dates 1867-2017 are also engraved in Heritage Canada’s official font to mark this outstanding occasion, alongside the CANADA 150 official logo. Behind this scene is Canada’s national maple leaf flag, rendered via laser frosting that gives it an ethereal feel - a fitting way to convey the swelling sense of pride and patriotism that, though it can't be physically seen, can be palpably felt swelling within Canadian hearts during this momentous year.

Investment Note
Since 2015, the mint has imposed a strict, reduced mintage limit of only 20,000 on the Annual Proof Silver Dollar, 20,000 less than in 2014 and 30,000 less than in 2010! This silver dollar's mintage limit is half that - just 10,000! And it's extremely affordable.All collectors of Canadian dollar coins and all silver dollar collectors need this inexpensive precious metal silver dollar to keep up their collections, so a sell-out at the Mint is a forgone conclusion, just like the last few years!

Technology Note - Enamel
The spectacularly brilliant, deep vermilion red of the anniversary commemoration "150" features the Royal Canadian Mint’s patented enamel technology. This proprietary technique applies deep, rich, semi-opaque colors to the coin, while the glaze over these hues enhances the effect of real enamel.
