Truro native Gerald Gloade designed artwork for the Royal Canadian Mint’s brand new 5-cent circulation coin celebrating Canada 150! Canadians cast more than 1 million votes online and Mr. Gloade’s special design was 1 of 5 chosen by Canadians to be featured on Canada’s circulation coin in 2017 as a part of the Mint’s ‘My Canada, My Inspiration’ contest. His design is a shining example of artistic talent in Nova Scotia! And tomorrow in Halifax you’ll have the chance to exchange your old 5-cent coin for a sparkling new 2017 MCMI edition at a free upcoming coin exchange! You can do the coin exchange tomorrow from 10AM-3PM at Canada Post on Almon Street. It’s just one of many things you can do to celebrate Canada’s 150th! Happy Birthday Canada!!!!!!!!!!!!!
