Talisman Coins is proud to bring you the latest in Royal Canadian Mint innovation - the Mint's second puzzle coin! Talk about must-haves! While Canada’s first puzzle coin in 2017 celebrated Canada 150 (and sold out in minutes), this new 2018 puzzle coin set tells the story of a nation’s history between 1866 and 1916 - from the eve of Confederation through the five decades that followed. This impressively sized (123.7 mm or five inch diameter) set consists of 14 individual coins that piece together to tell the story of the first half century of the Dominion of Canada.

Investment Opportunity!The selectively gold-plated image on the $50 centerpiece features the original Center Block of Parliament which was completed (for the Province of Canada) in 1866 and served as the political heart of the young Dominion of Canada until it was destroyed by fire in 1916. The outer ring is comprised of 13 linked puzzle-shaped pieces that feature sepia-toned reproductions of original photographs from Library and Archives Canada, all dating from the same seminal half century of Canadian history. The images on these $20 coins go beyond the dates and events found in history textbooks. They speak of progress and enduring traditions of an evolving nation beginning to forge its identity.

Obverse
Like pieces of a larger puzzle that is the story of Canada, the design by artist Tony Bianco reflects on the Canadian experience during Canada's first five decades — from the eve of Confederation to the devastating fire on Parliament Hill, on a series of jigsaw pieces that encircle a central coin to create a large, 14-part master coin. The dual dates 1866-1916 commemorate 50 years of Canadian history.
