Here's pair of silver dollars issued by Canada in 2017 as part of its numismatic commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation. The female figure on the coin's commemorative reverse is an allegorical representation of Canada.

The unadorned silver dollar was available for individual purchase ($59.95 CAD), while the selectively gold-plated SD was available only in a Pure Silver Proof Set ($234.95 CAD).





You can read more about the coins in my previous post about it here: 2017 150th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation Allegory SD.

Here you go:



Neptune riding a whale, seated backwards, with a mermaid blowing a conch shell in the background. What more could you want in a coin?
