Like a puzzle, Confederation came together piece by piece, every part clicking into place over time, the end result far greater than the sum of its parts. Diverse geographies, natural wonders and resources coming together from coast to coast to coast. A multitude of traditions, languages, and skills blurring distinct cultural lines. History may have recorded the beginning of Confederation 150 years ago, but for today’s citizens, Canada can begin anywhere on this nation’s ever-evolving continuum. This puzzle coin is an outstanding, first-ever achievement at the Mint, and a unique portrait of Canada that will be the highlight of the most distinctive collections.

Canadian heraldic artist Cathy Bursey-Sabourin has recreated Canada’s 13 provincial and territorial shields on a series of jigsaw pieces that encircle a central coin to create a large, 14-part coin. Each shield is exquisitely coloured and presented in the order each province and territory entered Confederation. A garland of maple leaves visually connects the pieces and carries a ribbon with each province’s and territory’s year of entry into Confederation. The central coin features a selectively gold plated Centre Block of Parliament Hill with the
Centennial Flame burning in the foreground. A double-date (1867-2017) flanks the Peace Tower, and its clock indicates 10:00 pm when fireworks usually begin on Canada Day.

Each piece of the puzzle is legal tender with a face value of $50 (central coin) and $20 (each of the jigsaw pieces). An unmatched portrait of Canada that will soar above all other commemorative keepsakes for its rich heraldic artistry, historic prestige, and cutting-edge technology. This coin is a must-have acquisition for dedicated numismatists, history buffs, and anyone seeking to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary with a prestigious collectible that will stand the test of time.
