Be a Part of Canadian History!

Posted by Fabiola Arevalo - Bellissimo Law Group PC

My Canada, My Inspiration Contest: a contest created by the Royal Canadian Mint in commemoration of Canada’s 150th anniversary. This contest provides Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents of the country with the opportunity to design the five circulation coins to be released in 2017. The contest is currently open and will be accepting entries until April 30th, 2015. Once the contest has been closed, notable Canadians will be judging all the entries submitted. Shortly thereafter, the public will be given the opportunity to vote on designs selected by the notable Canadians. A selection of winners will be announced in the spring of 2016.

To enter this contest and potentially be a part of Canadian history, visit the Royal Canadian Mint website and begin by selecting your theme. There are four diverse themes that can be chosen : Our Wonders, Our Character, Our Achievements or Our Passions. There is also a fifth theme, solely available to children under the age of 12, titled Our Future. The next step after the desired theme has been selected, is to let your imagination run wild and begin designing Canada’s next coin!

Bellissimo Law Group will be participating in this contest! We have created three different designs and we would like you to vote on your favourite one via Facebook (Bellissimo Law Group) or Twitter (@bellissimolaw)! The design with the most votes will be submitted for the My Canada, My Inspiration contest.
