An Unique Numismatic Treasure!
A Royal Canadian Mint first! A 5 troy ounce, oxidized antique finish pure gem!
 - TRULY RARE: Genuinely low mintage limit of just 1,200!
 - A GLIMPSE AT THE INNER WORKINGS: Both gears have the same number of teeth as their real-life counterparts.
 - AN AGED LOOK AND FEEL: Applied by hand, the coin’s antique finish enhances the precision engraving and gives it an aged look that reflects 90 years of history!
 - HISTORY IN YOUR HAND: The two gears are made from oxidized copper that originally clad the roofs of the Parliament Buildings. It’s a tangible piece of Canada’s architectural history - right there in the palm of your hand!
 - NO TWO COINS ARE QUITE ALIKE! To preserve its historical value, the copper has not been melted down or recast. Any color variations and markings occurred naturally during its time on the roofs of Parliament Hill, so they also help to make each coin unique!

The design by Canadian artist Calder Moore features an antique finish that brings an aged elegance to this depiction of the famed Peace Tower Clock on Parliament Hill. Precision engraving re-creates one of the four identical faces that grace each of the four sides of the iconic clock tower, which rises up high above Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario, the capital of Canada. The Roman numerals, minute markers and geometric-inspired center pattern are all beautifully and faithfully reproduced. In fact, the only engraved addition is the widening of the center's circular frame to include the engraved words CANADA, the year 2017, and the face value of 50 DOLLARS.

The clock’s hands are attached to the center of the coin, and provide an immobile base for the two gear wheels that allow a glimpse at a clock’s inner workings. These are exact replicas of two of the clock’s gears, albeit on a smaller scale: the larger wheel has 90 teeth while the smaller pinion has 32. For added historical value, these cogs have been fashioned from copper that once clad the roofs of Canada’s Parliament Buildings. This means that all color variations and markings have been preserved to make each coin unique.
