New Issue: Mint talks ‘Canada 150’

As Canadians begin celebrating the country’s sesquicentennial, the Royal Canadian Mint is commemorating this once-in-a-generation event with a “dazzling new array of finely-crafted collector coins to suit all tastes.”

To mark the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation, more than 40 products will be issued as the Mint unveils its monthly catalogues this year. On Jan. 10, a new Proof silver dollar and the 2017 Classic Uncirculated Set will be released, and there’s more to follow throughout the year.

“Every coin crafted by the Royal Canadian Mint is a celebration of our Canadian identity, our collective pride and our most cherished moments, which we are delighted to capture with our new Canada 150 coin program,” said Sandra Hanington, president and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint.

“Canada 150 is a once-in-a-generation experience that will give each of us lasting memories and the Mint is proud to offer Canadians a unique way to preserve those memories through the joy of collecting our new coins.”

Collectors in Canada and abroad can now order a number of coins celebrating Canada 150, including the 2017 $3 Fine silver coin, The Spirit of Canada. For beautiful colour perspectives of Canada seen through the eyes of photographers from every province and territory, customers can choose from the 2017 $10 Fine silver coin series, Celebrating Canada’s 150th, which will feature a new coin each month until July 2017.
