Special features:
  •   Your coin features a gold-plated image of the Statue of Cleopatra VII, one of the earliest pieces acquired by the museum. The granite bust is believed to be a rare representation of the young woman who would become the last Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, and earn immortal fame through romantic conquests.
  •   Your coin includes detailed engraving and the use of several finishes beautifully highlight the distinctive architectural details of the Royal Ontario Museum’s renowned Michael Lee-Chin Crystal.
  •   Your coin is GST/HST exempt with a limited worldwide mintage.

Design:
Your coin includes a gold-plated image of the Statue of Cleopatra VII, a unique piece that was purchased in the early 1900s by the museum’s first director. This ancient granite bust is believed to be a rare, idealized representation of the Egyptian queen whose romantic conquests earned her immortality. Behind the bust, the crystalline-like shape of the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal rises up to fill much of the image field, adding a modern element to the design. Its angled, prismatic structures are rendered in beautiful detail – from the aluminum strips giving the building its brushed metal appearance, to the many windows that capture and reflect light. The museum’s centennial is commemorated above the building with the words “100 YEARS ANS,” while below are engraved the face value of
“20 DOLLARS” and the word “CANADA.”

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a protect sleeve.
