Product Description

Get the fourth in the arresting and innovative Gates of Canada program - the wrought iron gates that protect the Royal Canadian Mint castle headquarters in Ottawa on its 110th anniversary, struck in 2 troy ounces of pure silver, with full color and a genuine, elaborately ornate black bronze filigree gate, too!

Investment Opportunity!In the heart of Ottawa, Ontario, an imposing wrought-iron fence guards a fortress-like complex where history is both made and commemorated. In honor of the Royal Canadian Mint’s 110th anniversary, this filigree gate-themed offering pays homage to the heritage building that has borne witness to our historic milestones, along with the wrought-iron gates that have safeguarded it since 1908. This 2 troy ounce pure silver coin captures the stately, Edwardian-era beauty of the commanding gateway, where a cast metal black bronze gate adds to a magnificent view of the Mint in the capital in Ottawa.

First Series of Its Kind!
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!
The iconic home of the Royal Canadian Mint has a commanding presence in the image by Steve McPhee. Highly detailed engraving adds texture from behind the full color overlay, mimicking the appearance of the heritage building’s solid sandstone walls, recessed windows, and even the coat of arms that preserves history just above the main entrance.

Adding to this stately appearance, a filigree gate is affixed to the coin’s rim to re-create the fence and gates that line the site’s perimeter. The “wrought iron” gates are painted black to resemble their real-life counterparts, which have guarded the entrance to the Mint since the official opening of the Ottawa branch of the Royal Mint on January 2, 1908. The design includes the legend CANADA and the commemorative dates 1908-2018.
