This set is the only collectible that offers all five different coin rolls featuring the 2017 commemorative coin designs to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary. Designed by Canadians for Canadians, and selected by popular vote through the My Canada, My Inspiration contest, these are historic collectibles that reflect this nation’s voyage through time, and expresses the people’s pride and optimism for the future.
The rolls include 25 x $2 coins, 25 x $1 coins, 40 x 25 cent cent coins, 50 x 10 cent coins, and 40 x 5 cent coins. For the $2 and 25 cent denominations, the rolls include a random mix of coloured and non-coloured coins. The coloured $2 coins also feature a special glow-in-the dark effect.

Dance of the Spirits, celebrates the wonders of Canada with a design featuring the spectacular Aurora Borealis.

Loon Style Dollar Design Artist: Wesley Klassen – St. Catherines, Ontario
Connecting a Nation, pays tribute to Sir John A.

Featuring impressive landmarks along the country's rail routes — from the Lion's Gate Bridge in British Columbia to the Grand Banks of the East Coast
25 Cent Colour Design Artist: Joelle Wong - Richmond Hill, Ontario
Hope for a Green Future features a pair of hands bringing life to a plant that connects all living things — represented by some notable Canadian animals. A random portion of these coins will include selective coloured elements.
10 Cent Design Artist: Amy Choi – Calgary, Alberta
An airborne maple leaf which forms the wings and tail of a dove delicately outlined beneath it. Like the olive branch, the Canadian maple leaf has become a worldwide symbol of hope, peace and good faith.
5 Cent Design Artist: Gerald Gloade – Millbrook First Nations, Nova Scotia
This unique design features a beaver in the traditional style of the northeastern woodland tribes of the Algonkian people. The beaver has long been the traditional emblem on Canada's five-cent coins. But its power as a symbol of the land we share goes back thousands of years, deeply connected to the heritage of First Nations people.
