About the Coin
Canada is a vast country. The drive to bring us all closer together — from coast to coast to coast— has led to some amazing achievements, including the building of our massive nationwide railway system.
The new 2017 $1 coin, Connecting a Nation, pays tribute to Sir John A. Macdonald’s vision of a national railway to unite the country — and celebrates the skill and drive that made that vision real through the steam age into the diesel era. Featuring impressive landmarks along the country’s rail routes — from the Lion’s Gate Bridge in British Columbia to the Grand Banks of the East Coast — its inspiring design is testament to our spirit of exploration and ingenuity, depicting the sights and scenes that call Canadians to each other — and the world to Canada.
Connecting a Nation is part of the My Canada, My Inspiration 2017 coin collection designed by Canadians for Canadians.
The tie that binds these coins is the Canada 150 logo, whose mosaic of 13 triangular shapes –one for each province and territory –evokes memories of the 1967 emblem.
