Project: Commemorative Scraps of Canada

A project concerning the commemorative coins of Canada and how their designs relate and represent it.

What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I learned that there was a lot of thought and effort put into the theme of a commemorative design and that it is possible to represent a part of your history in something that represents Canada's.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I learned that there is more to a coin than using it to buy things or to collect. Some people may take the commemorative designs for granted, but the coins can represent the essence or history of Canada.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

As most people I have studied in my project come from the year 2000, I would compare our lives by how we came to be born in Canada when our parents were born somewhere else, like Amy Choi.

    I enjoyed the presentation, very informative. I myself is a coin collector but now I know I am not just collecting coins but history as well.
