Mintage of Just 1,938!
Hold railway history in your hands! This Silver Proof coin from Liberia is part of a series of colorized Proof Silver coins paying tribute to historic railroads of the world. This Silver coin contains 0.643 oz of fine Silver. This reverse of this coin is dedicated to the Royal Hudson locomotive of Canada. The locomotive is shown (in color) on its run through the Canadian landscape. The first Hudson steam locomotive was built in 1929 by the Montreal Locomotive Works. These semi-streamlined 4-6-4 steam locomotives saw service with the Canadian Pacific Railway, and one of them was noted for pulling the royal train for the 1939 visit to Canada of Britain's King George VI and his wife, Queen Elizabeth. The Royal Hudsons were widely regarded as one of the most reliable and fast steam locomotives in history.
The obverse features the arms of Liberia dividing the date, and separating the legend and denomination. This Silver coin is a must-have not just for coin collectors but railroad enthusiasts, as well. With such a limited mintage, these are not easy to find, so get one while you can.
