January 11 2015 - As Canada prepares to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation in 2017, the Royal Canadian Mint proudly celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of the nationís primary architect and first Prime Minister: Sir John A. Macdonald.
June 9, 2015 - As the Canadian Flag celebrates its 50th anniversary, the Royal Canadian Mint proudly pays tribute to our national symbol by issuing both a coloured and non-coloured commemorative 25-cent circulation coin to celebrate this milestone. Few symbols of Canada are as easily recognized as the red and white national flag featuring the emblematic red maple leaf. Canada's flag represents pride, valour, freedom and peace and is considered one of the most widely recognized national symbols in the world. But most of all, for Canadians, it represents home and unites us all by creating a common identity that bridges our different cultures, languages and beliefs.
This coin includes a design of fifty children who each represent one of the flag's 50 years, as well as Canada's future. The words "50 years/ans" appear at the bottom center.
2015 marked the 100th anniversary of Canadian Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae's writing of In Flanders Fields.

The poem's striking imagery has served to enshrine the poem and the poppy as enduring and powerful symbols of remembrance for all Canadians, to this day.
Issued March 8, 2016 on International Women's Day - The 100th Anniversary of Women's Right to Vote is commemorated with this beautifully crafted $1 circulation coin depicting a woman proudly casting a ballot, while her daughter, who represents the future, looks on.
