2020 Canada $250 Reimagined 1905 Arms of Dominion of Canada Kilo Fine Silver (TAX Exempt)

This richly detailed coin was inspired by a popular historic postcard from 1899, a time when it was common for collectibles like postcards and commemorative dishware to feature a country's arms.

The reverse of this exceptional coin centres on the seven-province shield that was widely used in Canada, both officially and unofficially, from the 1870s to the early twentieth century. The imagery includes the arms of Canada's four founding provinces at Confederation (Quebec, Ontario, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick) as well as those of Manitoba (which joined in 1870), British Columbia (1871) and Prince Edward Island (1873). The four shields of the founding provinces are also individually highlighted, encircled by laurel wreaths.

The artist for this coin, Cathy Bursey-Sabourin, maintained the charm of the original postcard, making a few revisions to fit it perfectly to the coin. She is uniquely qualified for this work: Cathy Bursey-Sabourin is the Fraser Herald and principal artist of the Canadian Heraldic Authority. She painted the arms for the current and several previous Governors General of Canada and the Coat of Arms of Canada.
