Together, they complete a proud portrait of Canada and the red maple leaf that connects us all.

Special features:
  • THREE SPECIAL-EDITION COINS IN ONE SET: The world's longest coastline and the second-largest country are too big for one coin! Our special edition Connecting Canada set is a three-part celebration of Canada and our vast coastline.
  • INCLUDES GPS COORDINATES: All designs include the engraved latitude and longitude coordinates for points on Canada's Pacific, Arctic, and Atlantic coasts.
  • THE COLOUR OF CANADA: We've added a patriotic red colour to the portions of the maple leaf on every coin. When the three coins are viewed as one design, the red leaf and the map form the design elements that are connecting Canada.
  • A FUN WAY TO EXPLORE CANADIAN GEOGRAPHY: Whether it's an addition to your growing collection, or a gift to start someone on their own collecting journey, this affordable set is an opportunity to share your passion for coins, for Canada, and all the wonders that lie within our ocean borders.

Design:
Designed by artist Tony Bianco, each reverse design highlights one of Canada's three coasts:

  • On the Pacific-themed coin, a salmon-fishing Kermode bear (Ursus americanus kermodei) is paired with the GPS coordinates for Haida Gwaii (53.2500, -132.2500) to represent some of the westernmost portions of Canada's coastline.
  • A narwhal (Monodon monoceros) appears in Canada's northern waters on the Arctic-themed coin, which includes the coordinates for the northernmost permanently residential community of Grise Fiord, Nunavut (76.4166, -82.8958).
  • The Atlantic-themed coin features the Atlantic puffin (Fratercula arctica) as a symbol of Canada's eastern shores, along with the coordinates for Canada's easternmost point, Cape Spear, N.L. (47.5238, -52.6201).

When viewed together, the three coins complete a geographic portrait of Canada and its red maple leaf emblem. Each obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Canada has the world's longest coastline, which measures a total length of 243,042 kilometres. Canada is also one of the few countries bordered by three oceans!
  • Cape Spear, NL is Canada's easternmost point. Its GPS coordinates are included on the reverse of one of our Connecting Canada coins.
  • Some of the westernmost coastal communities in Canada are on Haida Gwaii, the homeland of the Haida people. It is often referred to as "Canada's Galapagos" due to its endemic plant and wildlife species.
  • Home to 129 permanent residents, Grise Fiord is Canada's northernmost permanently residential community and the largest one on Ellesmere Island! With an average July temperature of about 2 degrees Celsius, Grise Fiord is also Nunavut's coldest community — in fact, its name in Inuktitut means "place that never melts."

This three-coin set connects Canada's east, west and north—and all points in between.
