Launched in 1867, the confederation process in Canada was the legislative process through which the three British colonies in Canada joined together in a federation that granted the group broader local control over the destiny of the region. The existing colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick joined together to create the Dominion of Canada.
Immediately upon processing confederation and creating the Dominion of Canada, the colony known as Canada was split into two provinces. These new provinces were Quebec and Ontario. Over the course of its history since confederation, Canada has grown from four provinces to include 10 provinces and 3 territories.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse side of the 1967 $20 Canadian Confederation Gold Coins. Issued in 1967, these gold coins have the right-profile effigy of Queen Elizabeth II created in 1965. It was used on Canadian coins through 1989 and captures a depiction of a young Queen Elizabeth II wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara on her head. This is just the second effigy of the Queen to have featured on Canadian or British coins at this point in her reign.
The Canadian coat of arms is showcased on the reverse elements of the 1967 $20 Canadian Confederation Gold Coin. The coat of arms for Canada is a complex one that includes various elements from British and Canadian history, including various nods to French influence in Canada.
These 1967 $20 Canadian Confederation Gold Coins are available to you as either Brilliant Uncirculated or Proof specimens. The proof coins will show hints of frosted designs and mirrored fields. The Royal Canadian Mint issued these coins only in 1967 to mark the centennial of confederation in Canada.
