The 150th anniversary of Canada, also known as the 150th anniversary of Confederation and promoted by the Canadian government as Canada 150, occurs in 2017 as Canada marks the sesquicentennial anniversary of Canadian Confederation.
The Royal Canadian Mint held a national contest titled My Canada, My Inspiration for the design of the reverses of each of five circulating coins of the Canadian dollar, which would be part of the "Canada 150 Collection".
The Royal Canadian Mint also produced commemorative coins, including a 2-ounce (57 g) matte proof finish silver coin with a face value of $10, a 2017 variant based on the Silver Maple Leaf coin. It expects to release about fifty commemorative and circulating coin products, including Brilliant Uncirculated sets.
