New Canadian coins just in time for Canada’s birthday
As the nation gears up for July 1st, the Royal Canadian Mint continues to find new ways to celebrate Canada with original and innovative coins. These creations include the 2019 $30 Fine Silver Coin – The Fabric of Canada. Artist Rebecca Yanovskaya has designed a first-ever undulating, coloured Canadian flag, realistically fluttering above national landmarks, such as Parliament Hill’s Peace Tower and an East Coast lighthouse. Sharing her unique vision of our nation, artist Alisha Giroux has created a collage of story book-like illustrations of Canadian fauna, evoking the boundaries of our provinces and territories, on the 2019 $50 Fine Silver Coin – The Canadian Landscape, which is uniquely shaped like the map of Canada. Both of these coins and many other outstanding collectibles are available as of today.
