Description

In the heart of our nationÕs capital, the hallowed walls of Parliament are home to thousands of carved and sculpted artworks of exceptional beauty. The Royal Canadian Mint is proud to showcase one of the many delights that grace these spaces with the second coin in its series featuring carvings inspired by the sculptural art of Parliament in 99.99% pure silver.

Engraved in ultra-high relief, the coin features an original depiction by Dominion Sculptor Phil White of a Gothic-style grotesque interpreted from a carving found on the East Block of the Parliament Buildings. The image portrays a Green man disgorging stylized Òstiff-leafÓ foliage from its mouth. The staring figureÕs brows and hair are also composed of whirling, stylized leaves and stems.

Makes a unique gift or fine addition to any collection featuring Canadian, historical, artistic, or political themes.
