The reverse design on the striking Proof Dollar by Canadian artist John Mantha brings together symbolic elements that reflect how the Canadian flag is perceived both at home and abroad. Occupying much of the image's field, the famous red flag - its white centre square bearing the stylized red maple leaf - billows softly in the wind at full-mast atop a flagpole. Beneath it, a backpacker stands turned to the right and gazes at the horizon beyond a landscape that is a cross-section of Canada. This traveller's journey highlights the freedom and opportunities offered by Canada to explore and grow, whether at home or abroad. The addition of a small Canadian flag on his backpack is a common practice for Canadian travellers, speaking to the respect and recognition this national symbol receives throughout the world. The flag's 50th anniversary is highlighted with a symbolic ring of 50 maple leafs.
These seven beautiful coins are all struck in pure silver, and have a combined weight of 63.17 grams; over two ounces of .9999 fine silver! Mintage of this set is 20,000.
