Special Features:
• Second in the three-coin series featuring a carved image from the East Block of Parliament, reinterpreted by Dominion Sculptor Phil White, in ultra-high relief.
• Canadian sculptor and art conservator Phil White has been Canada's official Dominion Sculptor since 2006.
• The coin's ultra-high relief profile lends dramatic depth to the image. Royal Canadian Mint engravers worked closely with the Dominion Sculptor to interpret the designs, including reviewing the tools and techniques that would have been used to carve this type of art in stone. Each coin has been carefully crafted to remain faithful to those original techniques.
• A low mintage of only 4,000 of each coin means this series is sure to be sought after by collectors.
