To accommodate the Commonwealth Games logo on reverse, the date, denomination and nationality of the coin was moved to the obverse. The mirror finish bust of Queen Elizabeth wears a brilliant finish tiara. The queen’s name along the bottom is separated from the rest of the inscription by dots. The inscriptions “DOLLAR”, “1978” and “CANADA” are separated by maple leaf icons.


The reverse features Raymond Taylor’s design of the logo for the XI Commonwealth Games. Pictograms of eleven different sports surround a stylized Maple Leaf, with the inscription “XI GAMES - XI JEAUX Commonwealth Edmonton 1978”

Curious about how a bank wire transaction works?

Orders totaling $2000 or more qualify for payment by bank wire. To pay by bank wire, a temporary hold of 5% of the purchase price will be placed on the debit or credit card supplied at check out (10% for international customers). Bank wire instructions will be emailed once the hold has been authorized.

Bank wires for the full amount must be initiated by the end of the next business day. Once the wire payment is received, Gainesville Coins will release the hold of the 5% authorization fee.
