Product Description

Mintage of only 7,000 coins!
Fifth coin in a seven coin series! The reverse features an adaptation of Franz Johnston’s painting, The Guardian of the Gorge. The outer frame on the reverse side features the words “CANADA” and “FRANZ JOHNSTON” along with the date “2013” and the face value of “20 DOLLARS.” The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. In this detail of the painting, we see massive outcroppings of granite acting as guard and gateway to a vast river canyon. The figurative becomes literal as one notices the figure of a crouching man emerge from the rock and at the crest of the cliff (not seen here), the face of the elderly guardian watches over the vast chasm.
Comes to you in the original box with numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
