2020 Canada 1/10th oz. Tribute to Alex Colville: 1967 1-Cent Pure Gold Coin (No Tax)

A centennial celebration of Canada becomes a centennial celebration of Alex Colville (1920-2013) in a series, honouring the 100th anniversary of his birth. For the first time, all six of the artist's 1967 Centennial circulation coin designs have been re-imagined as 99.99% pure gold coins – from the “Canada goose” dollar to the “rock dove” one-cent coin.

This 2020 1/10thoz Tribute to Alex Colville: 1967 1-Cent Pure Gold Coin is the sixth and final coin in the 2020 Alex Colville series. This coin features Colvillle's most well-known numismatic design: Canada’s “rock dove” one-cent circulation coin. The Colville-designed image of a bird in flight made the 1967 Canadian penny stand out from its previously issued predecessors, when the piece featured either a maple leaf wreath (1858-1920), two maple leaves (1920-1936) or a maple twig (1937-2012).

The reverse re-creates Canada’s 1967 Centennial one-cent coin design by artist Alex Colville and features a front profile view of a rock dove in flight. The reverse also features the engraved face value “1 CENT”, the word “CANADA” and the date “2020”. The obverse features the second effigy (1965-1989) of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin.
