2017 Canada Peace Tower Clock 90th Anniversary 5oz Antiqued Silver Coin
At the stroke of noon on July 1, 1927, the Peace Tower Clock made its debut during Confederation’s Diamond Jubilee. Now, 90 years later, the commanding timepiece and its copper-clad apex are the pride of Canada! This beloved icon has been painstakingly re-created here in 99.99% pure silver, with two gears crafted from copper that once clad the roofs of Canada’s Parliament Buildings.
- A WORKING PIECE OF ART AND A MINT FIRST! Celebrate the 90th anniversary of an iconic timepiece: the Peace Tower Clock.
- IT’S HISTORIC: The two gears are made from oxidized copper that originally clad the roofs of the Parliament Buildings. It’s a tangible piece of Canada’s architectural history—right in the palm of your hand!
- NO TWO COINS ARE QUITE ALIKE! To preserve its historical value, the copper has not been melted down: any colour variations or markings occurred naturally during its time on the roofs of Parliament Hill—they also help to make each coin unique!
- A GLIMPSE AT THE INNER WORKINGS: Both gears have the same number of teeth as their real-life counterparts.
- AN AGED LOOK AND FEEL: Applied by hand, the coin’s antique finish enhances the precision engraving and gives it an aged look that reflects 90 years of history
