3/4 oz 2015 50th Anniversary of the Flag Silver Proof Coin
Buy with Confidence
The Canadian flag was first raised at the stroke of noon at Parliament Hill on February 15th, 1965. The maple leaf has long been a symbol for those who live in Canada, and was an easy choice for the new flag. Red and white were prominent colours on the Canadian coat of arms. The assembled crowd sang "O Canada", followed by "God Save the Queen". The Speaker of the Senate then gave additional meaning to the flag with the following words...
"The flag is the symbol of the nation's unity, for it, beyond any doubt, represents all the citizens of Canada without distinction of race, language, belief or opinion."
The reverse of this coin features a large Canadian flag blowing in a breeze. A backpacker with a Canadian flag sewn on his backpack surveys a wide open landscape meant to be a cross-section of Canada. This open landscape symbolizes the unlimited potential available to all Canadians. The outside of the field is filled with 50 maple leaves, one for each year of the anniversary.
The obverse features the Susanna Blunt effigy of HRH Queen Elizabeth II.
