Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This 2017 $20 pure silver coin series includes three different coins all themed “Locomotives Across Canada”. Each coin features selective gold plating, highlighting Canada’s history through some of its most iconic locomotives. Like modern engines of change, Canada’s locomotives have been instrumental in shaping our nation throughout its 150 years of history.

The 4-4-0, which was the most commonly used locomotive at the time of Confederation, and the first type built in Canada. The first coin – The 4-4-0 – will be shipped right away, with the remaining two coins being shipped one per month in July and August. With the second coin you will receive a custom embossed metal tin case to store your three coins.

As pure silver coins struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this entire series is HST/GST exempt.

The 4-4-0 - The reverse design by Canadian artist David A. Oram transports the viewer to Toronto, ON, in the year of Confederation: 1867. The selective application of gold plating immediately draws the eye to the 4-4-0 locomotive of the Great Western Railway (GWR) in the foreground. The left-side three-quarter view allows for a thorough examination of the steam engine’s defining characteristics—from the balloon smoke stack and large driving wheels to the cattle guard—all rendered in outstanding detail. In the background, the arched train shed of GWR’s Yonge Street passenger station adds an architectural point of interest, while the horse-drawn carriage waiting trackside completes this meticulously engraved snapshot of a bygone era.
