On the reverse, an engraved flame tops this small-scale replica of the Centennial Flame monument on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario. The 13-sided fountain consists of one panel for every Canadian province and territory, which are represented by their armorial bearings. On the edge of the fountain basin, the province or territory’s floral emblem frames its date of entry into Confederation. An antique finish adds a weathered look that emphasizes the deep sunk relief. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Located on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, the Centennial Flame commemorates Canada’s 100th anniversary as a Confederation.

He was joined on the hill by leader of the Opposition and former Prime Minister, John Diefenbaker, and Secretary of State, who was in charge of the Centennial, Judy LaMarsh as well as thousands of onlookers. The Flame is fuelled by natural gas and surrounded by a fountain whose ledge contains the shields of Canada’s 13 provinces and territoriesNunavut was originally absent as it was not created until 1999.
