Description

This 2013 huge silver coin has a diameter of more than 10 cm (4 inches), and weighs one full kilogram – 32.15 ounces of .9999 pure silver.  The face value is $250.  With a mintage of just 500 coins, this is one of the lowest mintage silver coins ever produced by the Royal Canadian Mint.  


The coin commemorates the 250th anniversary of the end of the Seven Years War, a war which had a major lasting impact on the development of pre-confederation Canada.  Most importantly, battles fought in Canada led by Generals Wolfe and Montcalm ultimately led to Canada becoming a British Colony.  The coin is double struck in pure silver with a frosted cameo finish and near flawless surfaces.  


The Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Luc Normandin, features a period map, showing the battlefront region where the Seven Years War was fought in North America. The coin also displays a commemorative banner at its center, flanked by the Royal Arms of France on the left and Britain on the right. 


Arguably one of the most defining moments in Canada’s history, the Seven Years War (1756-1763) was the world’s first global conflict extending far beyond North America to Europe, India and Africa. This huge pure silver coin maps the legacy of war while celebrating the 250th anniversary of the end of the Seven Years War.
