2011 Canada $25 Toronto City Map 2oz. Gold Plated Fine Silver (No Tax)

Featuring a stunning bird’s-eye relief view of one of Canada’s great cities, this 60 mm silver coin combines exciting new technologies in both cartography and minting with the proven, centuries-old tradition of finely minted collectible coins.

Alive with microscopic three-dimensional detail, the coin presents a dynamic aerial portrait of Toronto as if zooming-in from space-the rounded, magnified image reminiscent of an astronaut’s visor.

Toronto
Above this city of lofty buildings, second only to New York City in North America for its number of high-rises, soars the 553.33-metre CN Tower, North America’s tallest freestanding structure and officially one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. It attracts more than two million visitors each year and is an icon of Toronto’s skyline.

In addition to the CN Tower, this amazing coin’s plated gold border features key Toronto landmarks, including the 98-room Casa Loma, an important early twentieth century Gothic Revival castle now used as a museum; the Royal Ontario Museum, Art Gallery of Ontario, and Ontario College of Art and Design-three of Canada’s premier cultural destinations for knowledge-seekers, tourists, art-lovers, and artists alike; the Ontario Legislature Building at Queen’s Park, which houses the province’s Legislative Assembly; the former Skydome (now the Rogers Centre), which was the world’s first stadium with a fully retractable motorized roof; Toronto’s iconic twin curved City Hall buildings; the Hockey Hall of Fame; and the organic curves of the Ontario Science Centre.

Through an innovative new minting process, Toronto’s recognizable details are transferred to the coin’s surface without sacrificing the refinement expected of a fine proof coin. The Royal Canadian Mint’s first 2-oz 99.99% fine silver coin encapsulates one of the world’s great cities from an ‘eyes-wide-open’ vantage point offered by premier technologies in cartography, satellite imagery, and networking-all using the latest advances in coin-making.
