Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
In the heart of our nation’s capital, the hallowed walls of Parliament are home to thousands of carved and sculpted artworks of exceptional beauty. The Royal Canadian Mint is proud to showcase one of the many delights that grace these spaces with the third coin in its series featuring carvings inspired by the sculptural art of Parliament.

Engraved in ultra-high relief, the reverse features an original depiction by Dominion Sculptor Phil White of a Gothic-style grotesque interpreted from a carving found on the Centre Block of the Parliament Buildings. The humorous, slightly unsettling horned Green Man sticks out his tongue, his grimacing mouth topped with a jaunty moustache. His face is encircled by stylized foliage and his deep-set eyes peer from below heavy brows. Two small goat-like horns curl out from his forehead.

Makes a unique gift or fine addition to any collection featuring Canadian, historical, artistic, or political themes.
