Step into the real and fictional worlds of literary icon L. M. Montgomery.

L. M. Montgomery (1874-1942), one of Canada’s most enduringly popular authors, has influenced culture and literature internationally. Publishing hundreds of short stories and poems in addition to 20 novels, she achieved lasting fame through the creation of one of the world’s unforgettable characters: a plucky, talkative orphan girl with red braids, big feelings and imagination, and the same deep love for Prince Edward Island as her creator.

With the 2024 $1 commemorative coin, L. M. Montgomery becomes the first author to be featured on a Canadian circulation coin, which shares a reverse design with this 99.99% pure silver coin marking the 150th anniversary (“150 YEARS ANS”) of the writer’s birth. On this silver piece, the modified design has been given a colour boost that highlights the Anne of Green Gables author’s inspiration and the most famous character of her imagination. It features a more detailed view of the P.E.I. landscape, along with a full-colour rendering of the fictional Anne Shirley – with her famous red hair.

Own the fine silver companion to the 2024 $1 commemorative circulation coin.


  • Canada celebrates L. M. Montgomery. The 2024 $1 commemorative circulation coin celebrates the life and literary works of L. M. Montgomery, one of Canada’s most widely recognized and celebrated authors, on the 150th anniversary of her birth. The creator of Anne of Green Gables is the first author commemorated on a Canadian circulation coin, and its reverse design has been enhanced on this 1 oz. of 99.99% pure silver collectible.
  • Celebrating the power of imagination in Montgomery’s life and works. Flowing from the engraved view of the Anne of Green Gables author putting pen to paper, the coin design gets a big boost of colour as it moves into the inner world of L. M. Montgomery, where the fictional Anne Shirley gazes out at the P.E.I. landscape immortalized in Montgomery’s writing.
  • A personal connection. The artist, Brenda Jones, has a family connection to Anne of Green Gables: her grandparents owned the Green Gables house associated with the story. The original house is now part of the Green Gables Heritage Place in Cavendish, P.E.I., where millions from around the world have come to walk in Montgomery’s footsteps and with her characters.
  • A sentimental piece. A great gift or keepsake for readers, fans of the author’s many works, and the kindred spirits who relate to the imaginative heroine of Anne of Green Gables and her Island home.
  • Low mintage. Only 5,000 coins are available to collectors worldwide.


Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a black Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a custom beauty box.


The coin features bright, bold colours on its reverse. Unlike the $1 commemorative circulation coin, this silver coin uses greater colour with the heroine of Anne of Green Gables and with Montgomery’s manuscript; in addition, the Prince Edward Island landscape (and the blue sky above it) includes more details that convey its tranquil beauty.


The style of the author’s signature (re-created on the coin’s reverse) is how Montgomery signed many of her books, complete with miniature cat drawing.


Born on November 30, 1874, L. M. Montgomery began writing Anne of Green Gables in 1905 in her Macneill grandparents’ kitchen in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island. She balanced a portfolio on her lap, used a dip pen and ink well, and committed her thoughts to paper, following a detailed outline. Later, she typed a final copy that combined her handwritten story manuscript and the pages of notes she had created while she revised.

Designed by Canadian artist Brenda Jones, the coin’s selectively coloured reverse features a profile portrait of beloved Canadian author L. M. Montgomery (1874-1942) around the time Anne of Green Gables was written, along with her signature and the cat drawing she often included in inscriptions. The words “150 YEARS ANS” commemorate the 150th anniversary of her birth. As a tribute to the power of imagination in Montgomery’s life and works, the coin design flows from the engraved view of the prolific writer putting pen to paper (represented by the portfolio and inkwell) to her colourful inner world, where the novel’s eponymous heroine is seen gazing out at Canada’s Prince Edward Island – the idyllic setting for Anne of Green Gables, and the real-life inspiration for many of Montgomery’s stories. The obverse features the effigy of His Majesty King Charles III by Canadian artist Steven Rosati.


The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world. The Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint opened in 1908 and was renamed The Royal Canadian Mint in 1931 when control was transferred to the Canadian government. Their high standards for excellence and quality allowed them to be the first refinery to manufacture 9999 fine gold bullion coins in 1982, as well as the first to reach 99999 fine gold purity in 1998.
