First of Its Kind Silver Proof!
A Mint first! Fashioned from white bronze, the filigree gate is painted to give it an aged appearance, like the weathered but timeless look of a real wrought-iron gate. Extensive research and development helped determine the exact right amount of metal required to create a resilient filigree design - but one that won’t obscure the view of the garden behind it! The elegance of the gate paired with the spellbindingly colorful garden behind it make this a truly timeless piece and a prized addition to your collection. A true must-have for gardeners, nature lovers, creative spirits and lovers of beauty alike!

An Original Work of Art!
Inspired by gardens across North America, the stunning design pays tribute to nature’s beauty and the artistic endeavors of gardeners everywhere. There’s a prevailing sense of enchantment and mystery thanks to the filigree gate that stretches across the face of the coin. Fashioned from white bronze and inspired by an 18th century design, the filigree garden gate by Canadian artist Margaret Best has an intricate, delicate appearance that belies its strength and resilience. The coin’s large diameter (50 mm - 2 inches!) allows a breathtaking mix of color-over-engraved details behind the gate, as the eyes wander down the stone pathway leading towards the quaint cottage. Designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco, this magical summer garden brings together some perennial garden favorites in Canada: a climbing rose, hydrangea, phlox, bee balm, salvia and rudbeckia. All are depicted in full bloom, which heightens the larger-than-life quality of this picture-perfect setting.
