Every element in this complex design represents a different political, historic, geographic, and social aspect it represents Canadas story as a nation, all conveyed by the intricate engraving and careful use of multiple finishes. In the foreground, Canada rises up strong, majestic and bold; she bears a youthful appearance, given Canada's status as a relatively young nation.
Canada is the picture of grace and a vision of strength in her protective armor; and yet, she carries no weapon a symbolic nod to Canada's historic peacekeeping role, and Canadas efforts to bring peace throughout the world. Her brow is wreathed with a glorious garland of poppies, much as the lyrics to O Canada affirm in French. Facing out as though looking to the future, Canada's gaze is calm and steady while her arms are open wide, ready to embrace what challenges and triumphs lie ahead.
In one hand is a symbolic representation of the British North America Act, which represents the birth of the Dominion of Canada 150 years ago.

Unsearched All of the coins offered in this listing are unsearched. Many coin dealers search all coins when they are received from the Mint. They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc. When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins. When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed. Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera.
We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces. However, tilting the coin may resulting one side being slightly out of focus. Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting. We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits.The item "Canada 2017 Pure Silver Proof Set 150th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation" is in sale since Saturday, March 25, 2017.
