2006 $200 22-Karat Gold Coin - Timber Trade. Comes with all original packaging from the Mint

A voice cried out in the forest, "TIMBER!", and a towering tree falls to the ground. This was the scene that played out across Canada as the lumbermen worked to fill the growing demand for wood in the 19th century. "Lumbering" was a welcome supplements to the lean winter months that farming communities had to face. Armed with brawn, saw and axe, leagues of men disappeared into the forest for the entire season. Trees were easier to fell when the sap was not running. And snow greatly eased the difficult task of moving logs to the river. Later, when the ice thawed, the lumbermen's attention turned to the downriver drive. They released winters bounty into the water and jumped from log to log as they guided their quarry with long hooks. The sawmills was days or weeks away and they traveled by raft, a floating community that could span hundreds of meters across. It was dangerous work, an adventurous life. And this perfectly crafted 22-karat gold coin recapture the early days of timber trade--- an industry that helped build a nation and continues to enrich the Canadian experience in the 21st century.
