Celebrating 150 Years with a Numismatic Fireworks Show -- in 99.99% Pure Silver!
One of the youngest yet proudest nations on earth celebrates its 150th anniversary of confederation in 2017. No celebration of that importance would be complete without fireworks, and that is precisely what this coin provides. This reverse design of this special piece glows in the dark, with the Canadian flag waving proudly in the foreground as fireworks explode in the sky beyond. An inscription at the top marks the occasion, reading, “CANADA 1867-2017.” Essential information about the coin’s weight and purity are included below, while the initials of the designer, “TB” (Tony Bianco) are on the right. The obverse bears Susanna Blunt’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II at the center. The image is encircled by a frame, beyond which are inscriptions that together read, “ELIZABETH II D.G. REGINA” (“Elizabeth II, By the Grace of God, Queen”).

With the prominent role that Canada plays in the world today, it is sometimes easy to forget what a young country it is. In fact, it was only the Canada Act of 1982 that officially ended the British Parliament’s involvement in the process of amending the Constitution of Canada. Canadian contributions to the world run the gamut from its status as the world’s seventh largest oil producer and largest exporter of wood to its prowess in winter sports to several prominent cultural figures who are known throughout the world. This coin offers a unique celebration of Canada’s rich history through fireworks and the country’s iconic flag. Whether you are a proud Canadian or you simply respect the country’s rich history, you can be a part of this landmark occasion by ordering your Proudly Canadian Specimen today!
