Fine Silver Ultra-High Relief 3-Coin Set – Sculptural Art of Parliament – Mintage: 4,000 (2016)
The buildings that stand on Parliament Hill are among the most important examples of Gothic Revival architecture in the world. These historic buildings echo the architectural style of medieval Europe, but those who look beyond the pointed archways, buttresses and extensive stonework will discover an enigmatic world of uniquely Canadian images carved into wood and stone—maple leaves, Canadian fauna and flora, satirical scenes, First Nations mythology, snarling gargoyles, dinosaurs and countless fantastical characters known as grotesques.
This unprecedented series features three of the most captivating grotesques to pique the interest of art lovers, architects, historians, and collectors alike. Each coin was designed by Phillip White, a Canadian artist who has been Canada’s official Dominion Sculptor since 2006 and who has an intimate knowledge of the thousands of figures that adorn Parliament Hill. Every detail has been painstakingly reproduced, and every coin has been struck numerous times to achieve the ultra-high relief necessary to capture the depth, dimension and drama of the original sculpture—a unique art form rarely seen beyond the halls and walls of Parliament Hill!Special features:
- ULTRA-HIGH RELIEF! This expressive image in each coin seems to emerge from each coin’s face thanks to detailed engraving in ultra-high relief.
- EACH COIN HAS BEEN CAREFULLY CRAFTED TO REMAIN FAITHFUL TO THE ORIGINAL SCULPTING TECHNIQUES! 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.
