2017 COINS THAT REFLECT AND HONOUR CANADA'S HISTORY
The 2017 150th anniversary commemorative pieces are among the exceptional sets from the
Royal Canadian Mint. In 1967 Canadians celebrated the centennial marking 100 years of Canadian Confederation with celebrations that took place throughout the provinces and one big celebration known as Expo67. Designed to celebrate this significant milestone in Canadian history, the birth of modern Canada, these sets come in a wide variety of designs and values.
Coins that celebrate Canada’s military past are very important. They symbolize and reflect the bravery, sacrifice, and triumphs of Canadians who serve this great nation and our world with honour. In 2017 several military coins were released. These coins include the Battle of Vimy Ridge 5-Coin Circulation Pack. This pack was designed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the pivotal War One Battle which took place in France. It was a proud and painful moment in Canadian History as the Canadian Forces secured the victory at great human expense. The set contains five beautifully crafted coins bearing a $2 denomination and engravings that reflect the great military event. Without a doubt, it is a great way to keep in memory those who made such a tremendous sacrifice so that we can enjoy a better world today.
THE TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS COMMEMORATIVE COINS
The 2017 coins also include those that commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Toronto Maple Leafs, an ice hockey team that has been a source of pride and admiration for Canadians across the spectrum. Canada’s superstars on ice are deserving of the honour that these coin collections bestow on them. Fans of the team can bask in the joy of acquiring their very own commemorative coin. This and other Maple Leafs commemorative coins are available in bundles called rolls, allowing you to gift these collectible items to as many as 25 recipients. Since this team is such a great national symbol, these coins make the perfect gift for any hockey-loving Canadian.
