An extremely low mintage and compelling art combine to make this one of the most appealing coins to celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation. There’s a timeless quality to Jesse Koreck’s reverse design, which provides a lasting snapshot of Canada Day festivities on Parliament Hill. The view of the Centre Block building helps create a more immersive viewing experience—one gets the sense of being there in person, among the hundreds of thousands of people who have gathered on the lawn to take part in this joyous occasion. The outpouring of national pride is evident in the revellers’ red-and-white clothing and the prominent placement of Canadian flags. However, the crowd’s attention is focused on the sky overhead, where the aerobatic Snowbirds Demonstration Team performs a thrilling fly-past above the iconic Peace Tower. The use of a full colour application adds a rich vibrancy to the daytime scene; but the strategic integration and layering of photoluminescent technologies allow for a surprising transition to night. When viewed under a black light, a day of celebrating has reached its spectacular climax with an unforgettable pyrotechnic display! Black light and glow-in-the-dark technology re-create the elaborate firework finale above Parliament Hill, where the dazzling array of colours and patterns faintly illuminate the buildings and the crowd below. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a graphic beauty box.
