To celebrate the new millennium, Canada created a two-year circulating commemorative program that was conducted in two parts: one in 1999 and one in 2000. Each program released 12 quarters per year and each featured a unique design.
The 1999 designs were meant to look back on Canada's past, honouring the development and achievements of the nation, while the 2000 designs depicting the hopes and dreams for the future of Canada. While the 1999 coins were labelled with their month of issue, the 2000 coins were labelled with the relevant theme.
