2022 Canadian Passages Fine Silver Puzzle Coin Set (No Tax)
Look to the North Star for direction in this journey through Canada’s history! Like tinted memories, and inspired by iconic images from our past, the colour depictions on the 13 puzzle-shaped coins trace the evolution of transportation in Canada, culminating in the geography-themed centrepiece. But this set represents more than just a timeline of travel – it’s about connections, for as the nation evolved, so too did the transportation links that keep us connected and moving forward together.
This year’s puzzle coin set features a transportation theme. Inspired by classic images from our past, the 13 puzzle-shaped coins are vintage-tinted snapshots tracing the evolution of transport modes in Canada. But this is more than just a timeline of travel – it’s about the transportation links that changed the way Canadians connected and communicated with each other, represented by the pattern of interconnected maple leaves.
The puzzle-shaped coins include depictions of:
• Prairie Schooner
• Voyageur Canoe
• Passenger Steamboat
• Passenger Liner
• Air Transport
• Pontoon Airplane
• Passenger Bus
• Train Ferry
On the selectively gold-plated $50 centrepiece, the reverse design by Royal Canadian Mint engraver Alex Tirabasso features a compass rose over a map of Canada that represents history, exploration and travel; the compass rose also forms a repeating pattern on the obverse. Designed by artist Trevor Tennant, and inspired by period imagery, the puzzle-shaped $20 coins feature colour snapshots of 13 historically significant modes of transportation and a pattern of interconnected maple leaves. Each obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
