Now, a powerful figure from Canadas past is making a comeback: the historic Miss Canada icon. A visual representation of national values and identity who first appeared after Confederation, Miss Canada appeared in everything from political cartoons to political advertising, literature and film. She was originally portrayed as Britannia's youthful and obedient daughter - but as Canadas role and international relationships changed over time, so too did the symbolism associated with this icon.Miss Canada was withdrawn from public use shortly after the Second World War. Miss Canada makes a special appearance on a new 1/4 oz. Gold coin for 2013, with all the ideals and values of todays 21st-century Canada. This coin celebrates Canadian culture and heritage.

Designed by Canadian artist Laurie McGaw, your coin features a stunning iconic rendering of a new Miss Canada allegory for modern-day Canada.

Many coin dealers search all coins when they are received from the Mint. They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc. When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins.Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed. Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera.
Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just artists conception drawings from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting. We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits. The item "2013 $25 Canada An Allegory 1/4 oz.
