2017 Canada 150 Proof Pure Silver Dollar Special Edition Sets: Learn More

2017 marks the Canada 150 year celebration as an independent nation. To mark the occasion, the Royal Canadian Mint has created several new coin sets and individual coins that collectors must add to their coin collection. The new Canada 150 coins include special edition sets created specifically for the silver dollar, with two options to choose from. Learn more about these coins below and be sure to add them to your collection as they have the ability to sell out quickly.

2017 Proof Pure Silver Dollar

This coin was created as a unique representation of Canada to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation. Only 30,000 of these coins were minted, each in 99.99% pure silver with a 1 dollar value. The reverse side was designed by Canadian artist Rebecca Yanovskaya while the obverse was designed by Susanna Blunt. The bold design of the new coin makes it a must have, with a symbolic image of Canada clearly depicted on the coin, with every element speaking to the history of the nation.

This coin was finished with world-class frosting and the image was struck by the Mint three times so that a crisp and clear impression could be made, down to the finest detail. To help the coin look it’s very best, special dies were used along with hand polishing. When you receive your coin, it will include a serialized certificate with a unique number to your specific coin.

2017 Special Edition Pure Silver Proof Set—Canada 150: Our Home and Native Land

The second one dollar coin created by the Royal Canadian Mint to celebrate this milestone is the 2017 Special Edition Pure Silver Proof Set—CANADA 150: Our Home and Native Land. This collection includes a Proof Dollar, Glow-in-the-Dark Coloured 2 Dollars, 1 Dollar, 50 cent, 25 cent, 10 cents and 5 cents coins. This set was particularly unique as it was created with a design picked during the My Canada, My Inspiration contest.

After the design was chosen, the Royal Canadian Mint created the My Canada, My Inspiration 2017 collection with 99.99% pure silver, consisting of five brand-new circulation coins. The iconic symbols of Canada were reimagined to create a new option for coin collectors to enjoy. One of the highlights of this set is the Special Edition Proof Dollar. Gold plating was added with a golden sheen placed on the rim to give this coin a unique appearance. The coin has also laser frosting included so that the flag has a unique visual quality.

These are just a few of the new coins created by the Royal Canadian Mint for the 150th Anniversary celebrations.
