- 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: Features an original depiction by Dominion Sculptor Phil White of a Gothic-style grotesque interpreted from a carving found on the Center Block of the Parliament Buildings. The humorous, slightly unsettling horned Green Man sticks out his tongue, his grimacing mouth topped with a jaunty mustache. His face is encircled by stylized foliage as 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!
