Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This 2015 $20 pure silver coin is a new release from the Royal Canadian Mint that anticipates the 150th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation in 2017! It features Sir George-Etienne Cartier, one of the Fathers of Confederation.

The reverse design by Canadian artist William Lazos features a portrait of George-Etienne Cartier, presented directly facing the viewer, gazing stoically toward the left of the image. The beautifully rendered portrait is engraved in exquisite detail, bringing life to the gaze of this powerful figure in Canadian political history. In the background behind him we see part of the facade of Province House in Charlottetown, in which the 1864 Charlottetown Conference took place. The image of this structure is inspired by nineteenth century engravings. The engraved circle framing this inner portrait is finely decorated with stylized maple leaves of varying sizes flanking its left and right sides.

The coin contains just over one ounce of pure silver, and is being produced with a limited mintage of 8,500 coins. As a pure silver coin produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is exempt from GST or HST.
