It was one hundred fifty years ago on July 1, 1867 that the British provinces of Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia joined together as the Dominion of Canada (the other provinces were formed or were added later). To celebrate the 150th anniversary this year, the Royal Canadian Mint issued limited-edition 2017 $10 coins with a special design, inscription and finish. Struck in 1/2 oz. of 99.99% silver and featuring both brilliant and frosted elements, the one-year-only coins feature the revered maple leaves motif seen on the Canada penny from 1937 until 2012 when 1¢ coins were abolished. The reverse also bears the English/French inscription 150 YEARS/ANS. Depicting Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse, each one-year-only coin comes in a handsome display case with a certificate of authenticity. Limited in mintage to just 35,000 coins worldwide and very affordable, this 1/2 oz. silver anniversary issue is sure to be a collector favorite. Reserve yours today while supplies last!
