2015 Canada $100 200th Ann. Birth of Sir John A. Macdonald 14K Gold

Despite its relative youth, Canada boasts a rich political history whose past leaders, through now, left a lasting mark on the nation Canada was to become. This gold coin celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Canada's first Prime Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Glen Green pays tribute to Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada's first Prime Minister and a Father of Confederation. His reputation as a nation builder is symbolized by the modern-day map of Canada, which stretches from one side of the image field to the other and overlaps beyond the image rim. As one of Macdonald's achievements, the completion of the Canadian Pacific railway is represented here by the steam locomotive no. 374 - the first transcontinental passenger train to arrive in Vancouver in 1887. A side profile of Sir John A. Macdonald is portrayed on the right side of the image field, overlapping the rim, while the commemorative dates "1815-2015" signal the bicentennial of his birth.
