The Royal Canadian Mint has long followed the practice of issuing commemorative coins to mark important moments in national history. 1967 included the release of a $20 gold coin to mark 100 years since Canadian Confederation occurred in 1867. The confederation process put the British colonies of Canada on the path to independent governance and was a seminal moment in national history. Provident Metals currently has $20 Canadian Confederation Gold Coins available for online purchasing.

The shield and crest are topped by a lion in the passant guardant with the Union Jack to one side and the French flag to the other. The shield is supported by the Lion of England and the Unicorn of Scotland.
The Canadian Confederation movement saw the British colonies in Canada form a federation together. This included the Province of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick uniting together. The federation resulted in four provinces with the former Province of Canada split into the provinces of Ontario and Quebec to join Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
