Description
 
They are a connection to our past; and for many coin collectors, they ignited a lifelong passion for collecting. As Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary, this Commemorative re-issue of the 1967 Canadian Centennial coins revisits one of Canada’s most iconic coins: the Alex Colville-designed five-cent coin, which has been beautifully re-created and enhanced on this 5 oz. fine silver coin.

Item Number: 156446
Composition: 99.99% pure silver
Mintage: 2,150
Weight (g): 157.6

Special Features:
- FOURTH coin in an unforgettable series that celebrates Canada’s 150th anniversary and the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Canadian Centennial circulation coins.
-
Never before have these iconic designs been featured in 99.99% pure silver—and on a much larger scale (65.25-mm diameter)—uniquely enhanced with stunning gold plating selectively applied to the reverse and obverse.
-
The proof finish is gorgeously enhanced with modern polishing techniques that highlight the meticulous engraving of each subject.
-
For added historical authenticity, the obverse features the second effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as it appeared on the original coins.
-
Purchase individually or subscribe today to guarantee all six coins: each subscription comes with an elegant wooden collector case that will beautifully showcase the coins together as one complete set.
-
Third Big Coin series to feature iconic Canadian circulation coins: Previous ones sold out very quickly; given the popularity of the original designs, and a low mintage of just 2,150 coins per denomination, this series will be highly sought after.
-
An eye-catching addition to any Canadiana-, history-themed or circulation coin collections.
-
A great opportunity to revisit a proud moment in our history while celebrating another key milestone!

Packaging:
Maroon clamshell with graphic beauty box.
