2022 Canada $100 Great Inventor - Alexander Graham Bell 1/4oz Pure Gold (No Tax)

The Royal Canadian Mint's gold tribute to Alexander Graham Bell! The telephone is the symbol of communication in our modern world, and the person associated with its invention is remembered for both his dedication to understanding the world around him, and for his ability to envision a brighter future. Bell’s contributions to many different fields are the foundations of a legacy that goes beyond any single invention; this is represented on your gold coin’s reverse, where an early telephone and its inventor are surrounded by patent drawings and blueprint illustrations that speak to Bell’s commitment to the advancement of science and technology.

Designed by Canadian artist Simon Ng, your coin’s reverse features a portrait of Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922) and a depiction of the liquid transmitter that served as an experimental telephone in 1876. The outer rim features a mix of laser-engraved patent drawings and blueprint illustrations of some of Bell’s many inventions. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

• A CANADIAN CELEBRATION OF INNOVATION! The year 2022 marks the 175th anniversary of the birth of Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922), the great inventor whose interests and inventions had a profound impact on our modern world—and many of those advancements were made in Canada.
