Why purchase this perfectly graded 2017 Locomotives Across Canada 1 oz. Gold Plated Silver Proof?

This gilded silver proof is the first release of a three-coin series produced by the Royal Canadian Mint commemorating advancements in Canadian locomotive technology. At the time of Canada's Confederation in 1867, the 4-4-0 Locomotive was the most heavily used steam engine, and one of the first to utilize the newly completed Intercolonial Railway in 1872. Mintage of this gorgeous selectively gilded proof celebrating the 4-4-0 is limited to 7,500.

Magnificent Engraved Details

The reverse features the talent of Canadian artist David A. Oram, illustrating a highly detailed scene set in 1867, depicting a gold plated 4-4-0 locomotive of the Great Western Railway (GWR) in the foreground, with the engraved image of the train shed of GWR's Toronto Yonge Street passenger station in the background. Inscribed "CANADA 2017."

The obverse features the gilded image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Canadian artist Susanna Blunt. The portrait is encircled by "ELIZABETH II," "D.G. REGINA" and "20 DOLLARS."
