Description

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of our iconic flag, the Royal Canadian Mint has issued this unique rectangular $50 Canadian flag coin.  The coin is struck in pure silver with vibrant red enamel highlights, and weighs just over 1.5 ounces.  Mintage is limited to 10,000 pieces.  As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.


The Design:
The reverse design features the unmistakable Canadian Flag, with the iconic maple leaf as the center focal point. The beautiful engraving is richly enhanced by the use of red and white enamel that recreate the flag's distinctive colours.  With its bright red maple leaf, the famous red-and-white flag stands as a proud symbol for Canadians.  

The coin includes the engraved English and French words "50th ANNIVERSARY OF THE CANADIAN FLAG” on one side and “50e ANNIVERSAIRE DU DRAPEAU CANADIEN," on the other.  The face value "50 dollars" and the commemorative dates "1965-2015" all border the vibrant red and bright white enamel that has been meticulously applied to each coin to recreate the famous colours of Canada's flag. 

As our national banner, it speaks of our sense of belonging to a broader community, one that is a growing, vibrant mosaic of different cultures, languages and beliefs. It also represents our history and our identity within the international community as we work together to shape a future for ourselves, and for generations to follow.
