It was the era that laid the groundwork for a modern Canada. With its art nouveau look, the first coin in our three-part First 100 Years of Confederation series travels back in time for a glimpse of Canada between 1867 and 1914. These were the years in which the locomotive, like the 4-4-0 one featured on this coin, was the engine of change and the driver of progress. The completion of the transcontinental railway in 1885 ushered in a season of unprecedented growth for an emerging country, and by 1914, these ribbons of steel were wrapped around almost every aspect of life in Canada.
An outstanding start to a new series that fuses art, history and industry. Order your coin today!
