In 1964, Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson sought to replace Canada’s British-derived flag in order to promote Canadian identity and unity in anticipation of the upcoming centennial of Confederation in 1967. From various design submissions, the parliamentary committee responsible for this task ultimately chose a red stylized maple leaf on a white ground flanked by two red bars. The colors red and white had been Canada’s national colors since 1921, and the red maple leaf had been in official use by the Canadian military and by Canadian Olympic athletes since the turn of the 20th century.
• Eleventh coin in the O Canada 1/2 oz. silver coin series, focusing on iconic Canadian images.
• Your coin is engraved in exquisite detail and celebrates one of Canada's most important national symbols: the maple leaf.
