In the heart of Canada's capital, the hallowed walls of Parliament are home to thousands of carved and sculpted artworks of exceptional beauty. Each piece in this three-coin series is engraved in ultra-high relief in .9999 fine Silver. The Royal Canadian Mint is proud to showcase some of the many delights that grace these spaces with its stunning new series. Third in the series!
- Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine Silver in an Ultra High-Relief form.
- Comes in a mint-issued maroon clamshell box with a certificate of authenticity.
- Limited mintage of 4,000 coins.
- Obverse: The likeness of Queen Elizabeth II.
- Reverse: The reverse features an original depiction by Dominion Sculptor Phil White of a Gothic-style grotesque interpreted from a carving found on the Centre Block of the Parliament Buildings. The humorous, slightly unsettling horned Green Man sticks out his tongue, his grimacing mouth topped with a jaunty moustache. His face is encircled by stylized foliage and his deep-set eyes peer from below heavy brows. Two small goat-like horns curl out from his forehead.
The coin’s ultra-high relief profile lends dramatic depth to the image and allows engravers to use multiple techniques to capture the gorgeous detail of White’s images. Add this 1 oz Silver Grotesque Horned Green Man coin to your cart today!
