The Royal Canadian Mint is proud to showcase some of the many delights that grace these spaces with its stunning new series. Second 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: A Gothic-style grotesque interpreted from a carving found on the East Block of the Parliament Buildings. The image portrays a Green man disgorging stylized “stiff-leaf” foliage from its mouth. The staring figure’s brows and hair are also composed of whirling, stylized leaves and stems.
- The coin’s ultra-high relief profile lends dramatic depth to the image. Royal Canadian Mint engravers worked closely with the Dominion Sculptor to interpret the designs, including reviewing the tools and techniques that would have been used to carve this type of art in stone. Each coin has been carefully crafted to remain faithful to those original techniques.
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 Foliated Green Man coin to your cart today!
