Years before the United States issued their Statehood Quarters, Canada issued circulating commemoratives of their own 12 territories in celebration of their 125th Anniversary of the Canadian Confederacy.

In 1992, Canada celebrated it 125th Anniversary of the Confederation by issuing 12 different obverse designs (one design per month) of the twelve existing provinces and territories .

Coinage designs were based on designs submitted by citizens, each capturing a visually stunning image representative of their province or territory. Each coin had a composition of pure nickel, a diameter of 23.8 mm, and weighed 5.03 grams.

The series proved extremely popular among collectors and the general public. As a result many high grade examples were saved and are readily available at a cost just above face value.

The success of the program would not just be limited to Canada but would cross the border into the United States where the series became the inspiration for the United States Statehood Quarter series.
