The Royal Canadian Mint has used cutting-edge technology and artistic vision with the 2017 ¾ oz Proof Silver Canadian Our Home and Native Land Coin. Laser frosting gives the flag on the reverse an ethereal appearance that helps it rise up from behind the 3D outline map of the Canadian nation.
Following decades of conflict between the European powers, the United Kingdom brought most of modern-day Canada into its control by the late 18th century at the conclusion of the French-Indian Wars on the North American continent. The British North America Act of July 1, 1867 (nearly 100 years later) established a semi-autonomous federal Dominion of Canada comprising the colonies of Canada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia.
On the reverse of the 2017 ¾ oz Proof Silver Canadian Our Home and Native Land Coin is the outline of Canadian sovereign territory. The aforementioned technology and artistic vision comes into play on this side with the national flag, and its enduring maple leaf emblem, rising in the background. A massive engraving of “150 Years” features in the center to mark the occasion.
The obverse of all 2017 ¾ oz Proof Silver Canadian Our Home and Native Land Coins features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty appears on the obverse of all Canadian coinage, and has since she ascended to the throne of England in 1952.
The Royal Canadian Mint is the official mint of the federal government of Canada. Founded in Ottawa in 1908, it now has a second facility in Winnipeg that was opened in 1980s to help boost capacity in the mint system.
