Get on board our centennial celebration of CN with this colourful coin! Order today!

We’re marking CN’s centennial year with a 25-cent coin that connects the past with the present. The unique red and black freight train—it’s a familiar sight on today’s tracks, which wrap around the coin’s rim. While the rail map hints at CN’s legacy, the engraved steam locomotive is a more nostalgic nod to a time when these chugging and whistling engines criss-crossed a young Canada.

The perfect coin for rail enthusiasts, young and old! Order today!

Special features:
  • OUR MOST AFFORDABLE 2019 TRAIN-THEMED COIN. Priced at just $29.95, this special 25-cent coin is our most affordable train-themed coin in 2019. It’s the perfect gift for rail enthusiasts, young and old.
  • A RAIL-THEMED CENTENNIAL. We’re commemorating CN’s centennial year by celebrating its legacy and its place in our history.
  • TRACKS FORM THE RIM. Instead of denticles, train tracks run along the rim on your coin’s reverse.
  • SELECTIVE USE OF COLOUR. Selective colour highlights the red and white freight locomotives that are a familiar sight today across Canada.
  • TWO WELL-KNOWN LOCOMOTIVES. CN 6218, a 4-8-4 Northern steam locomotive; and the red-and-white CN 2557, an MLW M-420 diesel-electric locomotive.
  • MAPPING CN’S IMPACT. In the background, a stylized rail map hints at CN’s legacy of connecting communities across Canada.

Design:

Designed by Tony Bianco, your coin celebrates the 100th anniversary of Canadian National Railway (CN) by featuring two locomotives that represent the past and present. The coloured engine is CNR 2557, an MLW M-420 diesel-electric locomotive. Beneath the modern-day workhorse is CNR 6218, a steam-driven 4-8-4 Northern locomotive built by Montreal Locomotive Works in 1942. Instead of denticles, train tracks circle the rim and frame a stylized map that alludes to the railway’s impact across Canada. The reverse includes the face value “25 CENTS”, the commemorative dates “1919” and “2019”, and the word “CANADA”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Packaging:

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

Misleading and Deceiving

1

NPS not even silver. small and misleading imagery. Returned product.

Drawn by someone who has never seen a train

2

Somehow they have managed to draw the train with the brake pipe on the wrong side, and only one cutout in the plow for the MU hoses. They should just stamp the gold coin onto a cheaper material and sell that, at least it looks like a train.

Nice design, poor choice of metal

An important subject to commemorate. Really great design. However the coin is too small. For the price this coin should be in pure silver like 99% of the other commemorative offerings. Because of this the price is way out of line. I am not sure how the Royal Canadian Mint can justify offering a nickel steel coin that is not even in proof condition and the size of a quarter for more than $10. It takes advantage of railfans and coin collectors. It spoils what is really a dramatic design. Someone should have thought this through. Unless there is now a silver shortage in Canada....

The railroad history of our nation deserves better! Coin size should be 1-2 oz silver...at least, with moderate low mintage.

The coin was originally described as a GE C44-9W. Afterward it was corrected to be an MLW 420 which was sent to the scrap yards years ago. The coupler knuckle and air hoses are on the wrong side. The air reservoirs are wrong. Where was the quality control in all of this?

Different locomotive between image and description!

CN 2557 in the description refers to a much newer locomotive than pictured. CN 2557 and sister locomotives, as pictured, were built for CN in the mid-seventies.

Incorrect Product Description

The 2557 shown on the coin is an MLW M420, LONG retired, not the current 2557 which is a GE C44-9W.

Too small !!

For the excellent colour and design, it should have been stamped on a larger coin. Won't be buying. Too bad.

Nickel & Steel - Common

Come-on now ... 100 years and you want us to celebrate with Nickel & Steel. I'd do it only if it were the size of a Quarter and for circulation ... but this is no celebration over-sized "coin". I want this Color Design on a Quarter. That's a celebration compared to other things that go on a Quarter.
