Take your collection to fabulous new heights with the second coin in our architectural series that celebrates Toronto s defining landmark the CN Tower. At 553.33 m (1,815 ft 5 in), it is the tallest building in the world!

The CN Tower took 1,537 workers 40 months to build. Once the graceful tower was complete, the steel broadcasting antenna was put into place. Each section was raised by helicopter and secured into position by workmen who were standing on a 1.5 m (5 ft) diameter platform more than (450 m) 1,500 ft in the air!

After all, this is why Canadian National built it to send transmission signals far above the skyscrapers that were built during the 1960 s. With microwave receptors at 338 m (1,109 ft) and a broadcasting antenna at 553 m (1,815 ft), Torontonians would enjoy some of the clearest reception in North America!

But the towering architecture quickly surpassed this achievement as the tower was named one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.
