The Design:

A striking first! Ultra high relief coins are a grand tradition within the numismatic, exonumic, and paranumismatic arts. These coins blend sculpture and coin design to create a coin whose relief image literally stands above its two-dimensional counterparts. In the past, the Royal Canadian Mint has struck ultra high relief coins in silver.

This coin represents the Mint’s first-ever gold ultra high relief coin—and the world’s first such coin using 99.999% pure gold. This amazing coin was created through a new minting technique that builds the apex of the gold relief image to the extreme heights usually found only in Medallic art, where dimensional images are created through the casting processes of sculpture. Striking gold into such high relief offers unique challenges and benefits resulting from the softness, malleability, and flow rate of gold. While the image design and coin minting processes must address a number of rigorous challenges driven by the properties of the gold, these properties themselves result in an image of extraordinary height and fluidity. Featuring a lovely traditional profile effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
