Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
It was 100 years ago that a new, distinctive coat of arms was created for Canada. But before that, a dizzying array of heraldic art celebrated and represented a young nation that had yet to come into its own. One of those concepts has been plucked from the national archives and brought to life on this fine silver kilo coin. Its design is based on a 1912 drawing of Canadian heraldic emblems. And while the historic style itself is captivating, it’s what’s missing from the composition that provides rare insight into Canada’s heraldic past.

The reverse features an engraved rendering of a heraldic art concept that pre-dates the Arms of Canada proclaimed in 1921. Based on the pen-and-ink drawing by Joseph Aubé, the design centres on the quartered shield emblem of the Dominion of Canada and features a circular arrangement of the nine provincial coats of arms in use in 1912: (clockwise from the top) Ontario, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick and Quebec. The composition is surmounted by a stylized royal crown and surrounded by symbols of Canada, France and the United Kingdom, as well as a banner scroll that seemingly continues on the obverse. A garland of emblems also appears on the obverse, which features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
