Canadian Mint Unveils Six String Nation 50-cent Coin!

Canadian Mint Unveils Six String Nation 50-cent Coin!

April 2009

"This coin will strike a chord with all Canadians. Music lovers will quickly notice how it’s shaped like a guitar pick—the perfect tie-in to the Six String Nation Guitar.

The brainchild of broadcaster [and author] Jowi Taylor, this one-of-a-kind instrument is made of wood, bone, metal and stone from across the country. Indeed, to hold the guitar is to hold Canada’s amazing history, cultures and stories in one’s hands—an amazing sense of nationhood that countless musicians and spectators have experienced since the guitar was first played on Parliament Hill during the Canada Day celebrations in 2006."
