Product Description

Canada:  2018 $30 The Queen's Gate: Formal Entrance to Parliament Hill - 2 oz. Pure Silver Coin

Design: 

Combining high visual appeal with national historical significance, your coin features a filigree gate that captures the likeness of the Queen's Gate on Parliament Hill. This multi-dimensional design element is fashioned from black bronze and mimics the wrought-iron vines and floral flourishes that represent the height of Victorian craftsmanship and metalwork. Affixed to the coin's rim using a tongue-and-groove approach, the imposing entry re-creates the intended viewing experience if one was standing before the actual gate: the centre railing is perfectly aligned with the central axis of the parliamentary grounds, and forms a straight line from the gate, past the Centennial Flame, to the Peace Tower that dominates the Centre Block building. The green lawn, blue sky and burning Flame add colourful vibrancy to the engraved reverse, which was designed by Cathy Bursey-Sabourin and coloured by Patrick Belanger, while the Peace Tower's spire and flagstaff add a sense of soaring height by rising up beyond the image's edge. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
