9999 Fine It was 100 years ago that a new, distinctive coat of arms was created for Canada. But before that, a dizzying array of heraldic art celebrated and represented a young nation that had yet to come into its own. One of those concepts has been plucked from the national archives and brought to life on this fine silver kilo coin. Its design is based on a 1912 drawing of Canadian heraldic emblems. And while the historic style itself is captivating, it's what's missing from the composition that provides rare insight into Canada's heraldic past.Special features: FROM THE ARCHIVES!
