Request information

Includes a 50-cent coin and swatch of Maple Leaf tartan!

A 50-cent piece was the very first coin to be struck at the opening of the Ottawa Branch of Britain's Royal Mint by Governor General Earl Grey in 1908. In 1931, the Mint became a Government of Canada institution and was renamed the Royal Canadian Mint. With the exception of the centennial year of confederation, the 50-cent coin has featured the arms of Canada on the reverse since 1937. The official arms of Canada depict several symbolic images of Canada's heritage and are an official symbol of the sovereignty of the Government of Canada. The two inscriptions A Mari usque ad Mare and Desiderantes Meliorem Patriam, translate to “From sea to sea” and “They desire a better country,” respectively.

The fabric in your set is "The Maple Leaf Tartan", Canada's official tartan pattern. Created by David Weiser in anticipation of Canada's Centennial celebrations in 1967, the green, gold, red and brown stripes represent the maple leaf's varied colours through the ever-changing Canadian seasons.
