2015 Canada $20 Sir John A. Macdonald Fine Silver (No Tax)

The year 2017 will mark the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation. As we approach this momentous sesquicentennial, the Royal Canadian Mint is proud to launch this exceptional coin featuring Sir John A. Macdonald, one of the Fathers of Confederation.

The reverse design by Canadian artist William Lazos features a portrait of Sir John A. Macdonald. Inset in the centre of the reverse within a circular engraved frame, Macdonald is presented in three-quarter profile. The beautifully rendered portrait is engraved in exquisite detail, bringing life to the gaze of this powerful figure in Canadian political history. Behind him we see part of the facade of the original Centre Block at Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Canada. The engraved circle framing this inner portrait is finely decorated with stylized maple leaves of varying sizes flanking its left and right sides.
