Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Plucked from the national archives, a pen-and-ink drawing from 1912 is now a limited-edition work of finely engraved art. All the ornate details of the original concept have been painstakingly re-created and adapted to fill both sides of this luminous 99.99% pure gold kilo coin. There’s a timeless quality to the reverse, yet its elegant design predates the arms created for Canada a century ago.

The reverse features an engraved rendering of a heraldic art concept that pre-dates the Arms of Canada proclaimed in 1921. Based on the pen-and-ink drawing by Joseph Aubé, the design centres on the quartered shield emblem of the Dominion of Canada and features a circular arrangement of the nine provincial coats of arms in use in 1912: (clockwise from the top) Ontario, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick and Quebec. The composition is surmounted by a stylized royal crown and surrounded by symbols of Canada, France and the United Kingdom, as well as a banner scroll that seemingly continues on the obverse. A garland of emblems also appears on the obverse, which features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
