In 2012, the Calgary Stampede, the annual rodeo and western culture show held in Calgary, Alberta marked the 100th anniversary of its first event.

Canada, and the Royal Canadian Mint (R C M), celebrated the anniversary with a commemorative proof silver dollar featuring a design highlighting the Stampede's bareback bronc riding event. The design was created by Steve Hepburn.

The 50th anniversary of the National Ballet of Canada was celebrated in 2001 with a commemorative silver dollar struck by the Royal Canadian Mint (R C M).

The National Ballet of Canada staged its debut performance at Eaton Auditorium in Toronto, Ontario on November 12, 1951. It was founded by dancer Celia Franca who not only danced with the Company for a time, but also served as the Ballet's Art Director for 24 years. The world-famous Company performs at its own theater, currently the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto, as well as in halls around the world.

The coin was designed by Scott McKowen.

Here's the commemorative silver dollar, with selective gold plating, that was part of the Royal Canadian Mint's (R C M) Fine Silver Proof Set for 2013; the GP version of the coin was not available individually, though unadorned proof and brilliant uncirculated silver examples could be purchased.

The Canadian Government sponsored the Canadian Arctic Expedition (CAE; 1913-18) to explore the expansive western Arctic region to learn more about its vast, frozen territory and to blunt potential exploration and claims over newly-discovered areas (islands) by the United States. The Expedition party consisted of 100+ people, including scientists from multiple disciplines and First Nations Iņupiat, Inuvialuit and Inuinnait who assisted as hunters and guides.

In the end, the CAE was a mix of success and failure. Seventeen men died during the expedition, one of its ships was lost and it cost more than 7X original estimates/budgets. But, it did effectively establish Canadian sovereignty over the territory, discover several new islands, help correct maps of the area, bring European goods and culture to a new people and collect thousands of scientific (geological, biological) samples and cultural artifacts to bring back and study.

The coin's commemorative reverse design, created by Bonnie Ross, is based on a photograph taken during the CAE. It presents a group of three men standing next to a dogsled, with its dog team standing at the ready. A large compass forms the artistic background for the scene.

Next up is Canada's 2006 silver $5.00 coin that was issued in support of Canada's Breast Cancer Awareness initiative; the coin was released in silver for collectors and as a colorized 25-cent circulation coin. The silver $5 collector coin has a completely different design vs. the circulating 25-cent coin.

The Royal Canadian Mint (R C M) collaborated with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBC Foundation) to raise awareness about breast cancer; the campaign was implemented under the banner of "Creating a Future without Breast Cancer." The CBC Foundation was organized in 1986 and was thus celebrating its 20th anniversary of raising funds for breast cancer research and raising awareness about breast cancer. Press releases of the time noted that 21,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005, and that more than 5,000 women had died of the disease during the year.

UK Ģ5 coin issued in 2019 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria:

The reverse design shows technological advances of Queen Victoria's lifetime: railways, shipping, the telephone and a Penny Farthing bicycle, with cogwheels illustrating the Industrial Revolution.

Here's Canada's 1984 commemorative silver dollar marking the 150th anniversary of the incorporation of Toronto, ON.



The coin's commemorative reverse design has an effective "then-and-now" theme with a canoe being paddled on Lake Ontario by a First Nations person (circa 1834) in the foreground and the modern (circa 1984) skyline of Toronto in the background. The coin was designed by D.J. Craig and engraved by Walter Ott.

The annual Convention of the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association ( RCNA) was held in Toronto in 2018. As a souvenir of the event, the RCNA encapsulated 50 examples of the 1984 silver dollar - here's my example:

Here's a 1982 Netherlands silver 50 Guiden that was issued to mark the 200th anniversary of formal, friendly relations between the Netherlands and the United States. A gold version of the coin was also struck.

The reverse of the coin uses allegory/symbolism to represent the two countries: Lion (the Netherlands) and eagle (the United States). Simple but effective! (IMO)
