Wedding ceremonies vary from one culture to another around the globe, but if there is one staple of the celebration is the bestowing of gifts upon the bride and groom by their friends and family. The concept of a gift has changed over time as well, with original notions of a gift coming in the form of a dowry paid to the groom by the bride’s family, with the first recorded dowry exchanged in 3,000 BC.
In the modern world, the concept of wedding gifts in North America began when Macy’s invented the first known gift registry in the late 1920s. While many couples routinely receive items they’ll need as a married couple around the home, there are other options when it comes to gifting, such as buying silver.
All 2017 1 oz Proof Silver Canadian Best Wishes on Your Wedding Day Coins arrive inside of a protective box with a premium graphic beauty case that includes the heart-shaped design found on the coin’s reverse side.
On the reverse of the Proof Silver Canadian Best Wishes on Your Wedding Day Coin is the image of a number of hearts and other designs that combine to make a larger heart shape. Each of the hearts within the larger design are plated in pink gold, and an engraving of “Married in 2017” commemorates the marriage of any two people for the calendar year.
The obverse of the 2017 1 oz Proof Silver Canadian Best Wishes on Your Wedding Day Coin features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy appears on all Canadian coinage, and this design was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt.
