Description

Canada’s heraldic history comes to life in this gorgeously detailed re-imagining of the 1905 Arms of Dominion of Canada. Designed by Fraser Herald and artist Cathy Bursey-Sabourin, this 1-kilogram 99.99% fine silver coin captures the charm and beauty of heraldic art at the turn of the twentieth century. Rich details and a beautiful flowing design make this low-mintage collectible a jewel in the crown of any collection.

The reverse of this silver coin centres around the seven-province shield used in Canada from the 1870s to the early twentieth century. It bears the arms of the four founding provinces (Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia) as well as those that were added shortly after Confederation (Manitoba, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island). The central shield is surmounted by a stylized royal crown. At its base is a beaver and a ribbon bearing the bilingual text “DOMINION OF/DU CANADA”. Flanking the central shield are four individual versions of the shields of the original provinces, with Ontario and Nova Scotia on the left and Quebec and New Brunswick on the right. Each of individual shields is encircled by a laurel wreath. The background is filled with stylized maple leaves. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt against a background with a pattern of maple leaves in the same style as featured on the reverse.
