While Canada’s first puzzle coin issued in 2017 celebrated Canada 150, this new 2018 puzzle coin set consists of 14 individual coins that piece together to tell the story of a nation’s character and growth between 1866 and 1916. The coins beautifully connect Canadian history and highlight iconic elements of the first half-century of the Dominion of Canada-the era that laid the foundation for the Canada we now call home. With the same ultra-low mintage of just 800 as the 2017 issue, demand is expected to far exceed supply for this newest puzzle set. The outer ring is comprised of 13 linked puzzle-shaped pieces that feature sepia-toned reproductions of original photographs from Library and Archives Canada, all dating from the same seminal half-century of our nation. As a pure silver coin set issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt. These include Queen Victoria, King Edward VII and King George V. Each of the 13 outer coins features an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada’s first prime minister and the statesman of a new nation. Northwest Mounted Police, established in 1873. Sowing for Tomorrow: Canada’s tradition of agriculture. Klondike Gold Rush of 1896. Forests and loggers who contributed to building Canada. The Iron Horse Across Canada: Canadian Pacific Railway Locomotive No. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, a prime minister known for his mastery of the art of compromise. Winter on the Rideau Canal: Lord and Lady Minto, Canada’s eighth governor-general and his wife, skating. Fishery tradition on Canada’s coasts. Totem poles of Alert Bay, BC, a cultural representation of First Peoples. Westward Bound, featuring the westward journey of many settlers. Total number of coins: 14. Assembled diameter: 123.7 mm.
