Capture the era of Canada’s 1927 Diamond Jubilee with this “The Forgotten 1927 Designs” three coin fine silver. All three one ounce fine silver coins feature the unused circulation coin designs intended to commemorate Canada’s Diamond Jubilee in 1927. Working with the original sketches, the Royal Canadian Mint’s engravers set out to interpret each artist’s vision as though the art had been entrusted to them today, to mark Confederation’s 150th anniversary. Mintage of this unique three coin set is limited to just 5,500. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

The 90-year-old concepts have been painstakingly adapted for modern engraving techniques—including a reverse proof finish that allows the more brilliant engraved elements to shine bright against the matte backdrop. 

The one-cent coin:
Features an Art Nouveau-inspired design by Canadian artist Gustav Hahn (1866-1962), with a bough of maple leaves encircling the commemorative dates “1867-2017”. 

The five-cent coin:

By Canadian artist J.E.H. MacDonald (1873-1932) features a crowned lion gripping a maple leaf as it stands perched on a rock, which represents the changing Canadian landscape cradled by the sea; beneath the forepaw is Canada’s motto, “A MARI USQUE AD MARE” (“From Sea to Sea”), while the commemorative dates “1867” and “2017” are inscribed above the lion. 

A second design by MacDonald graces the reverse of the 25-cent coin, and centres on a soaring view of the iconic Peace Tower on Parliament Hill. The clock tower soars high above the clouds and is surrounded by a ribbon-wrapped laurel of leaves, from which hangs four bells—an ode to the Dominion Carillon, which was inaugurated on July 1, 1927, during the Diamond Jubilee festivities.  Each bell bears engraved numbers that combine to form the commemorative dates “2017” and “1867”.  The back design features an effigy of King George V, who reigned from 1910-1936.
