Description

In the heart of Ottawa, Ontario, an imposing wrought-iron fence guards a fortress-like complex where history is both made and commemorated. In honour of the Royal Canadian MintÕs 110th anniversary, this filigree gate-themed offering pays homage to the heritage building that has borne witness to our historic milestones, along with the wrought-iron gates that have safeguarded it since 1908.

The emblematic home of the Royal Canadian Mint has a commanding presence in the reverse image by Steve McPhee. Highly detailed engraving adds texture from behind the colour overlay, mimicking the appearance of the heritage buildingÕs sandstone-clad walls, recessed windows, even the coat of arms that preserves history just above the main entrance.

Adding to this stately appearance, a filigree gate is affixed to the coinÕs rim to re-create the fence and gates that line the siteÕs perimeter. The Òwrought ironÓ gates are painted black to resemble their real-life counterparts, which have guarded the entrance to the site since the official opening of the Ottawa branch of the Royal Mint on January 2, 1908. The reverse includes the engraved word ÒCANADAÓ and the commemorative dates Ò1908-2018Ó. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

A visually striking coin that creatively commemorates the 110th anniversary of both a Canadian institution and a historic site: the Royal Canadian Mint!
