Gold Confederation Set

This pure gold limited edition re-strike of Canada’s 1927 Diamond Jubilee of Confederation medal is the second in a series of three important historical pieces commemorating Canadian Confederation. Each medal features a historic milestone in the story of our nation: Canadian Confederation in 1867, the 1927 Diamond Jubilee of Confederation, and Canada 150 in 2017.

As Canada reached its milestone 60th Anniversary of Confederation, the precedent first set in 1867 was followed with a new official medal representing an updated image of Canada. The design was first created by Canadian illustrator Charles William Jefferys (1869-1951), and was engraved by the illustrious French medallist, Raymond Delamarre (1890-1986) of the Paris Mint. Medals were struck in silver and bronze and awarded to prominent Canadians, dignitaries and members of government, while one medal was struck in gold and presented to King George V. 90 years after the celebration of Canada’s 60th anniversary of confederation, this re-strike of the original design continues to honour the legacy set forth by the Fathers of Confederation and those who carried on fulfilling their vision of what Canada could become.

The 1927 medal design provides an allegorical representation of the growth, development and early transformation of Canada. In place of the four eager young maidens which represented the founding provinces of Canada on the 1867 medal, a new single “Canada” figure on the 1927 medal has gained maturity and confidence, and represents the unified country. Her arms are spread wide, echoing Canada’s official motto which appears across the medal AD MARI USQUE AD MARE (“FROM SEA TO SEA”). Below the allegorical figure are sheaves of wheat and clusters of maple leaves. Behind her, a map of the country includes the transcontinental rail links and the shield from the Royal Arms of Canada. The names of four prominent explorers are also included: (Captain James) Cook, (Captain George) Vancouver are inscribed along the West coast, while (Jacques) Cartier and (Samuel de) Champlain are inscribed on the East side of the map. ‘Canada’ stands proudly on a pedestal marked 1867-1927.

The obverse features a regal crowned effigy of King George V by Sir Bertram Mackennal. While this is essentially the same portrait that appears on most Canadian coins from 1911 to 1936, it appears as an exceptional striking image in this large format with high relief and a proof-like finish.
