Canada turned 150 in 2017 and the RCM struck new designs on 5-cent, 10-cent, 25-cent, loonie and toonie coins to commemorate the anniversary.
A national design contest, My Canada, My Inspiration, kicked off in March 2015 when the RCM asked Canadians to create new designs from five theme perspectives: Our Wonders, Our Character, Our Achievements, Our Passions, and Canada’s Future. The public cast more than 1 million votes for designs that numbered in the thousands. The finalists in each class were determined by the RCM and a panel of notable Canadians. Canadians then voted and selected a final design for each category in September 2015.

The design illustrates the iconic engineering achievements which dominate the Canadian landscape from east to west. It depicts landmarks like Lion’s Gate Bridge in British Columbia, a prairie grain elevator, the CN Tower, Quebec City’s majestic Chateau Frontenac Hotel and an East Coast lighthouse. It pays tribute to Sir John A. Macdonald's vision of a national railway to unite the country — and celebrates the skill and drive that made that vision real through the steam age into the diesel era.
