2014 $20 Fine Silver Coin 1 oz Craigdarroch Castle: Stained Glass '14 Canada

2014 $20 Fine Silver Coin 1 Troy Ounce '14
RCM Royal Canadian Mint
Craigdarroch Castle: Stained Glass

This simple, yet stunningly elegant coin is crafted in honour of the world-renowned stained glass windows located in Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, British Columbia. The castle is a mansion constructed in the late 1800s by a wealthy coal baron, who requested it be designed in the Scottish Baronial style. Despite its 39 rooms and 28 acres, the many examples of ultra-sophisticated stained glass windows remain its primary claim to fame. This coin is the first in an exquisite new series by the Royal Canadian Mint, which celebrates the wide-reaching beauty of this artful glass. The representation of stained glass from Craigdarroch Castle on this coin is enhanced by translucent glass-like enamel that makes the coin shine and reflect light, alluding to the ethereal light-play that actual stained glass creates. The elegant enamel is hand-filled into individual crevices, mimicking the painstaking task of creating stained glass. The beautiful design, struck into one ounce of fine silver, is sure to bring a smile to the face of any art-lover; it would also make a surprising and elegant addition to any collection of fine silver.
