On July 1, 2017, Canada will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation. To commemorate this very special occasion, a truly unique coin has been created.

Applying cutting-edge ultra high relief technology to a kilogram format coin, this is the first coin to feature true-to-size recreations of circulation coin reverses and obverses from the last 150 years. Each coin featured on the reverse was specially selected to highlight key moments in Canada's history since Confederation, from the effigies of the various Kings and Queens who have reigned over the constitutional monarchy to the moments that have pressed Canada toward the modern era.

The lofty 4.4-millimetre relief height raises this coin high above the standard 1.2-millimetre height for a one-kilogram coin. The antique finish lends extraordinary depth, detail, and patina to a collection spanning from the Georgian era to today's circulation designs!

Featuring approximately 35 obverse and reverse images from previous and current circulation coinage, this amazing large-format coin makes the ideal canvas of purest silver. From the 100th Anniversary of Women's Right to Vote to the Victory Nickel of the Second World War, from the War of 1812 to the 50th Anniversary of the Canadian Flag, and from the Canadian Arctic Expedition to the Canadian Centennial, this amazing coin takes on a journey through Canada's most memorable moments.

Coin is encapsulated and housed in a wooden display case with a black beauty box.
