2003 Canadian $20 Transportation: The Bricklin SV-1 Gull-Wing Car Sterling Silver Gold-plated Coin
During the 1970s, Saint John, New Brunswick, was the automotive capital of the world as it began producing the gull-winged wonder known as the Bricklin. Looking very much like Italy’s Maserati (but at a fraction of the cost), the Bricklin promised to deliver performance and safety innovations that were years ahead of its time. Plans were ambitious but short-lived – Bricklin Canada closed its doors after producing just 2,854 cars.
– The popular Land, Sea and Rail Transportation Coin Series returns with special-edition coins that put the spotlight on transportation innovations of the 20th century.
– Each coin features a special-edition cameo struck with an intricate sterling silver design
– The rest of the coin’s surface is treated to an ultra-precise selective gold plating technique
