2018 Canada Before Confederation Colonial Currency of the Atlantic Provinces Fine Silver 4-coin Set (No Tax)

Before Confederation, the provinces of Atlantic Canada were separate British North American colonies, each with their own particular cultural character and even their own coins — a fact that adds a fascinating diversity to Canada’s coin history. This four-coin set reaches into history for a special look at circulation coins issued in a time before each province joined Confederation. A time before Canada.

Special Features:
-A TRIBUTE SET TO OUR PAST. A magnificent showcase of Canada’s coin history and the colonial coins of Atlantic Canada.
-The use of an antique finish adds an appropriately aged, patina-like appearance to these pre-Confederation designs by the renowned British engraver, L.C. Wyon.
-ADAPTING THE PAST TO THE PRESENT. These 19th-century designs have been painstakingly re-created and adapted to a larger-sized canvas than the original coins.
-HISTORY SIDE-BY-SIDE. Together as a set, these four coins allow for a close study and comparison of the different designs-even the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick cent coins have slight variations that set each one apart.
Packaging:
Maroon clamshell with black beauty box.
