Special features:
  • A CANADIAN CELEBRATION OF INNOVATION! The year 2022 marks the 175th anniversary of the birth of Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922), the great inventor whose interests and inventions had a profound impact on our modern world—and many of those advancements were made in Canada.
  • A GOLD TRIBUTE! Impeccably crafted in 99.99% pure gold, this is the only gold coin within the Alexander Graham Bell: Great Inventor commemorative collection, which celebrates Bell’s achievements across several coins issued in 2022.
  • INSPIRED BY PATENTS AND BLUEPRINTS! On the coin’s reverse, the laser-engraved outer rim is based on actual patent drawings and blueprint illustrations for several inventions and ideas attributed to Alexander Graham Bell. It’s an artistic celebration of science!  
  • AN EARLY TELEPHONE! Your coin’s reverse includes a depiction of an experimental telephone transmitter built in 1876. The telephone is the invention that made Bell world famous, and the one that paved the way for his other contributions to science and technology.
  • A DAZZLING MIX OF ENGRAVING TECHNIQUES! To ensure none of the engraved details are lost in the mix, we used different engraving techniques and frostings—like the laser-engraved outer rim—to create an interplay of light and shadows that adds depth to the design.
  • A LIMITED COLLECTIBLE! Only 2,000 coins are available to collectors worldwide.
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
  • NO GST/HST

Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Simon Ng, your coin’s reverse features a portrait of Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922) and a depiction of the liquid transmitter that served as an experimental telephone in 1876. The outer rim features a mix of laser-engraved patent drawings and blueprint illustrations of some of Bell’s many inventions. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

“With insatiable curiosity, Dr. Bell constantly sought ways to better the world. After losing two brothers to tuberculosis, he considered methods to generate clean energy that would not exacerbate what he called the "Greenhouse effect."  When he lost his two premature sons, he devised an apparatus that was the precursor to the iron lung. Bell was a true visionary, seeing beyond all horizons, from sound transmission and recording, to photo phone and human flight.” - Marian Weissman, Teacher and Bell descendent

Did you know?
  • In his lifetime, Bell had more than 18 patents to his name, and 12 more that he shared with collaborators. Many of his other ideas would be expanded upon by inventors and scientists who left their own marks on our modern world.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
