Description of obverse and reverse The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse design boasts an astonishing level of dimension and depth through the use of the coin’s concave shape, which lends itself beautifully to recreating the Library of Parliament’s lavish interior and domed ceiling. A unique viewing perspective from the base of the marble statue of Queen Victoria immerses the viewer in the artwork, conveying the reading room’s soaring height and spaciousness while creating the impression that they are on-site, looking upward at the ceiling. The intricately carved pine bookshelves that encircle the reading room are replicated on the reverse along the rim, further contributing to the 360-degree viewing experience while the application of a timeless antique finish to the ultra high relief engraving showcases the meticulous precision and masterful artistry.
A brief annotation Built in the Gothic Revival style of the 19th century, the Library of Parliament is one of Canada’s shining architectural jewels and has been described as our most beautiful room. Inside the circular building, ornate woodwork and a breathtaking dome speak of its artistic merit, its cultural importance, and its historic heritage as the only remaining link to the first Centre Block of Parliament, which was destroyed by fire in 1916.
