This $100 proof coin weighs about half an ounce and is struck in 14K gold. The design features the buildings in which the Charlottetown and Quebec Conferences took place, events that helped lay down the foundation for the Canada we know today.

The coin is double struck with a frosted cameo finish set against a mirror background field. This is the highest quality finish produced by the Royal Canadian Mint.  The total mintage is limited to just 2,500 pieces.

The architectural elements of each building have been carefully polished to showcase the structures as they would have appeared 150 years ago. The top half of the design features the Charlottetown Colonial Building, now called Province House. In the lower half of the image, we see Quebec Parliament Buildings that stood in the place now occupied by Chateau Frontenac. Bringing to life the intricate detail of the original engraving, this image presents the building from atop a canon-lined battlement, overlooking the harbor at Cape Diamant.

The Charlottetown Conference was held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island in 1864 for representatives from the colonies of British North America to discuss Canadian Confederation. The conference was originally planned as a meeting between representatives from the Maritime colonies only: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. Newfoundland agreed with the movement, but was not notified in time to take part in the proceedings. Britain encouraged a Maritime Union between these colonies, hoping that they would then become less economically and politically dependent on the Crown, as well as provide for greater economic and military power for the region in light of the ongoing American Civil War. However, another colony, the Province of Canada-comprising present-day Ontario and Quebec-heard news of the planned conference and asked that the agenda be expanded to discuss a union that would also include them.

The conference concluded on Wednesday, September 7, but the representatives agreed to meet again the next month in Quebec City. At that conference, George-Étienne Cartier was largely responsible for convincing the French-Canadian members of the Legislature in Canada to accept the resolutions, even though he himself did not support such a strong central government. Canada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia then set about securing partial autonomy from the British government, which culminated in a third London Conference in 1866, and the British North America Act on July 1, 1867.
