DID YOU KNOW?
Built in 1845, the Point Prim Lighthouse predates Canadian Confederation (1867).
It takes about 10 minutes to drive across the Confederation Bridge, the longest in the world crossing ice-covered waters. Construction began in 1993 and the bridge opened on May 31, 1997.
Designed by artist Bonnie Ross, your coin’s reverse features an engraved collage of iconic sights and symbols of Prince Edward Island in honour of the 150ᵗʰ anniversary of its joining Confederation (1873-2023). The first lighthouse in Prince Edward Island, the Point Prim Lighthouse, appears in the foreground; it sits atop the shield from the Arms of Prince Edward Island, which is flanked by another official provincial emblem, the Lady’s Slipper (Cypripedium acaule) flower. Behind the lighthouse and beneath the view of the Confederation Bridge, a map outline of the island shows the Confederation Trail. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
