The 2005 Saskatchewan Centennial Silver $5 coin marks the 100th anniversary of Saskatchewan joining the Canadian Confederation on September 1, 1905 (the same date as Alberta). As with Alberta, Saskatchewan was created from land that was previously part of the North-West Territories.

The coin's design (by Paulett Sapergia) presents a singing Western Meadowlark, perched on a fence post with barbed wire, as its primary foreground design element; the bird is flanked by shafts of wheat. To the left are seen railroad tracks that lead to a large grain elevator in the background. To the right of the Meadowlark is depicted the sun setting over the open prairie.

The $5 coin was struck as a proof on a 0.9999 fine silver planchet. The coin has a weight of 25.175 grams and a diameter of 36.07 millimeters; it features a reeded / serrated edge.

The Susanna Blunt portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the coin's obverse; the Blunt portrait of QEII began appearing on Canada's coins in 2003.


For a detailed discussion of the coin and the 25-cent circulation piece with which it shares its design, check out:

I'm revisiting the 1936 Providence-Rhode Island Tercentenay half dollar in this post. I previously included it in the Flora thread, but, upon reflection, feel it might be more appropriate for this Agriculture-themed thread due to its inclusion of an agricultural crop element within its design vs. a flower/bush/tree/leaf, etc. The agricultural element does not dominate the coin's theme, but it is important to its overall message (see below).

The 1936 Rhode Island half dollar marks the 300th anniversary of the founding of City of Providence in what would ultimately become the State of Rhode Island. Providence was founded on the principles of freedom of religion, the individual's rights to his/her religious beliefs, as well as a tolerance of others and their beliefs.

The obverse design for the coin depicts Roger Williams, founder of the Providence Plantations colony, standing in a canoe as he comes ashore at the mouth of the Moshassuck River. He is shown with his right hand raised and offering a friendly greeting to the Native American meeting him; his left hand is holding a Bible. The Native American is shown with the palm of his right hand faced down, toward the ground. The official description of the coin's design describes this as being a Native American sign language gesture meaning "Good." (Report of the Rhode Island Tercentenary Commission, 1937.) (Just FYI: This is opposite of the current sign for "Good" in American Sign Language (ASL) which defines a gesture with the palm facing up.)

The design includes a single stalk of maize/corn seen growing behind the Native American. It is meant to be "symbolic of the native contribution to the new American civilization and particularly characteristic of Rhode Island." (Report of the Rhode Island Tercentenary Commission, 1937.) It is well-documented that corn/maize was a very important crop for the Native Americans; it remains an important agricultural crop to the present day, with it being ranked as the US' #1 crop.

The reverse of the coin presents a version of the Rhode Island State Seal with its central anchor.

The coin was co-designed by Newport, RI artists John Benson and Arthur Carey; both were graduates of the Rhode Island School of Design.

Cool token. What was the level of circulation such pieces?

Next up is an official commemorative medal that was issued as part of the 1938 Delaware-New Sweden Tercentenary. The bronze medal features the Great Seal of Delaware on its reverse; the Seal includes multiple agricultural elements.

The Seal includes depictions of wheat and corn within its shield at the top, two important agricultural crops for Delaware, plus an ox to represent the importance of animal husbandry to Delaware's economy. Supporting the shield (on the viewer's left) is a husbandman (i.e., farmer) holding a hoe, another nod to the importance of agriculture to Delaware. The Seal also includes a rifleman/soldier as a supporter (right), and is surmounted by a sailing ship (not the Kalmar Nyckel). At its bottom is seen a ribbon with the text "Liberty and Independence" which was adopted as the State Motto in 1847.

For more details on the Seal's elements, and to read the official Delaware law regarding the Seal, I suggest having a quick look at https://www.ereferencedesk.com/reso...elaware.html[.
