The Royal Canadian Mint has released new silver Proof coins which highlights the centenary anniversary of one of the country’s premier national events. Known simply as ‘The Royal,” it is Canada’s premier showcase of agricultural products and horsemanship.
The reverse side of the coins is designed by artist Glen Green who offers an Art Deco-style highlighting some of the sights and events that have made the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair a premier showcase of agricultural and equestrian excellence. An array of livestock depicts a chicken, sheep, cow, and a horse which are surrounded by agricultural products, a rider, and a horse as they compete in the Royal Horse Show. Behind all these elements is The Royal logo, which is shown on a champion rosette. Above the design is the text CANADA shown in Art Deco style lettering, and the commemorative years 1922 and 2022 are seen below in the same style text. The *obverse features the effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II (1926–2022) created by Susanna Blunt and the denomination 30 DOLLARS placed under the Queen’s likeness.
