This year, the Canada 150 celebrations will begin as the country is celebrating their independence. The country is 150 years old and the Royal Canadian Mint has decided to commemorate the occasion, as they do with so many milestones, with several new coin mintings and sets. The Canada 150 coins include two new released proof sets for the 150th anniversary that are already being purchased by collectors. Learn more about these two new sets below!

2017 Special Edition Pure Silver Proof Set-CANADA 150: Our Home and Native Land

The first new coin we are going to discuss, Our Home and Native Land is a unique proof that is created from 99.99% pure silver. The set consists of a proof dollar, 2 dollars, 1 dollar, 50 cent, 25 cent, ten cent and five cent coins. Each coin is created from pure silver while the Proof Dollar has selective gold plating, the 2 dollar coin has a gold-plated inner core and the 1 dollar is also gold plated.


What makes this proof set unique is that the design was created from a contest known as My Canada, My Inspiration. Each coin has a different designer for the reverse side, with the designers using the iconic Canadian symbols but reimagining them for this new set. Designed by Canadians, this set is sure to please individuals from Canada as well as avid coin collectors.


2017 Pure Silver Proof Set-150th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation

This second proof set takes a modern approach to tradition in the design of the included coins. This set includes a proof dollar, 2 dollars, 1 dollar, 50 cent, twenty-five cent, ten cent and five cent piece, each consisting of 99.99% pure silver. Gold plating is included which makes this set a top choice for collectors.


The proof coin of this set is of the highest possible quality as it was finished with frosting and the image was struck by the Mint three times in order to create a stunning and crisp image. The specialized dies are hand polished and replaced to ensure that each coin minted comes out perfect.


With this set, the owner will have a unique addition to any coin collection as these coins will not be placed in circulation. Classic coin designs were used to commemorate this milestone year for Canada with images including a polar bear, the Canada Coat of Arms, caribou, Bluenose and beaver. This set is placed in a leather book-style which helps you to display your new collection proudly.
