Don’t miss out on the opportunity to get what RCM officials are calling
“the fastest sellout coin ever”!

To celebrate Canadian Confederation in 1867, the Fathers of Confederation sought to mark the event by creating an extraordinary commemorative medal, which was commissioned to be produced (in England) by the leading engravers of the era, J.S. and A.B. Wyon. The resulting medal has been considered a masterpiece of medallic art, and the few surviving original silver specimens today sell for several thousand dollars each. In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, the Royal Canadian Mint has recreated this spectacular design on a new ten ounce fine silver coin with a $100 denomination. The design uses the same large 3 inch (76.25 mm) diameter as the original medals issued in 1867.

The reverse design is inspired by the rich medallic traditions the era, and features allegorical representations of both the fledgling Dominion of Canada and Great Britain. Britannia, Great Britain’s timeless allegory, is peacefully seated and is adorned with a helmet and armour. She holds a trident on her right as a shield ornamented with the Royal Union Flag rests on her side. A lion, the stalwart symbol of Great Britain, is seated at Britannia’s feet and is resting its head on her knees. Britannia is presenting a figurative representation of the British North American Act that reads “CONFEDERATION”.

Best of all, although the current price for single coins in this series is $1495.95, we are pleased to offer limited remaining quantity of complete subscription sets at original issue price of $899.95 per coin.
