First Series of Its Kind Silver Proof!
A Mint first! Fashioned from black 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 spell-bindingly 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!

A World of Beauty!

Celebrate the beauty of Canada’s gardens! This dimensional design combines two of the most well known (and beloved) features of the Halifax Public Gardens: its main gate, and the bandstand that is at the center of this public space. Adding to the authenticity of it all, the gate is carefully painted to give it an appropriately aged look - like metalwork that has been exposed to time and the elements.

An Original Work of Art!
Combining extraordinary visual appeal with historical significance, the design 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, as if one were standing before the actual gate! The center 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 colorful vibrancy to the engraved design, which was created by Cathy Bursey-Sabourin and colored 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.

Obverse
Designed by Canadian artist Margaret Best, the design features a world of carefully cultivated beauty beyond the gate that stretches from rim to rim. This ornamental gate closely replicates the main gates of the Halifax Public Gardens, whose ornate scrollwork has been carefully adapted to retain its century-old aesthetic on a smaller scale, without sacrificing the element’s durability.
