“Century Sam” – BC Centennial Mascot

This commemorative patch features “Century Sam”, the gold prospecting mascot of BC’s centennial celebrations. No question, the gold rush had a big influence on the province and I can only imagine that this aspect of our history must have felt a lot closer/more relevant 50 years ago.
