Happy Canada Day, 151 Yrs. Old, Sherman Pins, including Canada Day Pin 1967

The Canada Pin I got in late 2016, The Canada Pin was designed by Gustave Sherman in 1967 close to our new Maple Leaf flag. Celebrations, activities and events of all kinds were held across Canada in 1967 to mark the 100th anniversary of Confederation, and promote the country’s achievements, history and cultural heritage. The federal Centennial Commission funded thousands of special events and activities, such as the Centennial Train and Caravans, the Centennial Medal, and numerous music and sporting events across the nation. A focus of Centennial Year was the immensely successful Expo 67 World’s Fair in Montréal, which was visited by 50 million people. In addition, provinces, municipalities, businesses and individuals undertook thousands of events that contributed to a national mood of excitement and optimism. I remember this quite vividly as we studied it as it happened in Social Studies class. Unfortunately we were too far from the crux of the most exciting activities !!
This Canada Pin has black stones with a bit of ab shine to the black stones, it gives the black stones a very light silver sheen which captures the still light. However when looking at it the black takes over as it should and there is no other colours reflected ! This particular pin is very highly collectible and rare!~

The 3 other Sherman pins I collected in 2018. Love to all, on this, our birthday !~
