This ten ounce fine silver coin is the perfect way to show your national pride. The design features a map of Canada which gives shape to an eye-catching collage of provincial and territorial flags. From east to west and across our north, each flag is distinguished by colours and symbols specific to the land, people and history they represent. The 13 flags come together beautifully on this special collectible, where they form an inspiring image that proudly represents Canada as a whole. Mintage is extremely limited to only 750 coins. HST/GST exempt.
Each flag in this colourful collage fills the shape of the province or territory it represents: Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut in the north; and from west to east, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador. The reverse includes the year “2021”, the word “CANADA” and the face value “100 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Bunt.
Did You Know?
that most of these provincial and territorial flags were formally adopted in the 1960s and 1970s, and many were inspired by the province/territory’s coat of arms? For example, the flags of Ontario and Manitoba are both based on the Canadian Red Ensign, which represented Canada prior to the adoption of the maple leaf flag in 1965; However, the two flags are differentiated by the provincial shield: Manitoba’s shield features a bison while Ontario’s shield has three maple leaves. The “youngest” flag in this collage is the flag of Nunavut. The flag was granted on April 1, 1999, the same day Nunavut was officially established.
