A unique souvenir to mark Canada's 150th birthday! Order today!

From coinage to Canada's national flag, the maple leaf is woven into the very fabric of this nation's history reaching back to the 1700s. In 1858, when the first pennies were struck for the Province of Canada, maple leaves dominated the design. In 1920, an updated motif reduced the number of leaves from 16 to two; and in 1937, the maple twig you see on this coin made its debut—a bold move when the Dominion of Canada created its own designs to reflect its growing sense of nationhood.

Today, the same design that defined the Canadian penny for over 75 years continues to inspire, five years after its retirement from circulation. This commemorative counterpart is twice the size of the original, and is struck in 99.99% pure silver. It's a timeless keepsake to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday that will shine with pride—today and tomorrow!

Affordable and upscale—a cherished heirloom to last generations! Order today!
