Description

The reverse is a faithful re-issue of the medal’s original design by world-renowned engravers J.S. and A.B. Wyon of London, England. Inspired by the rich medallic traditions of Europe and the still young United States, the ultra-high relief design features allegorical representations of Great Britain and the fledgling Dominion of Canada. Britannia, Great Britain’s timeless allegory, is peacefully seated and is adorned with a helmet and armour. She holds a trident on her right as a shield ornamented with the Royal Union Flag rests on her side. A lion, the stalwart symbol of Great Britain, is seated at Britannia’s feet and is resting its head on her knees. Britannia is presenting a figurative representation of the British North America Act that reads CONFEDERATION.

The Confederation scroll is being bestowed upon four young maidens, who represent the four original provinces of 1867 (clockwise from the top): Ontario with a sickle and sheaf symbolizing agriculture; Quebec holding a canoe paddle that representing commerce; Nova Scotia with a shovel representing its rich mining; and New Brunswick with an axe, representing forestry. The prominent Latin motto around the reverse reads JUVENTAS ET PATRIUS VIGOR, or YOUTH AND PATRIOTIC STRENGTH.

The obverse features an ultra high relief effigy of Queen Victoria as she appeared at the time of Canadian confederation in 1867.

Edge Lettering - Incuse edge lettering shows the Canada 150 re-strike issue date of 2017, the silver fineness of .9999 and weight of 10 ounces.
