2019 Canadian $200 100th Anniversary of CN Rail - Pure Gold Coin

Its locomotives were the driving engines of development, while its tracks are the ribbons of steel that are woven into the fabric of a nation. Since its incorporation in 1919, the Canadian National Railway Company (CN) has left its imprint on a modern Canada. The freight trains of today are the continuation of a storied railway tradition. And it began in the Age of Steam, when CN’s network connected Canadians from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and supported the communities in between. From transportation to telecommunications, CN’s 100-year history is synonymous with a century of progress in Canada. To commemorate CN’s centennial year, this 99.99% pure gold coin features a classic railway design on its reverse. The different locomotives are a tribute to a century of driving innovation, framed by the tracks that continue to be the backbone of our economy.


A RAIL-THEMED CENTENNIAL! Celebrate 100 years of Canadian railway history during CN’s centennial year. This superbly crafted 99.99% pure gold coin traces CN’s journey since its incorporation in 1919, and highlights the railway’s role in shaping a modern Canada.
DESIGNED TO PLEASE! The finely engraved reverse features a powerful, train-themed design that has a classic look and feel to it.
A MODERN TWIST ON A CLASSIC FEATURE! Instead of denticles, the reverse is framed by train tracks—a nod to coins issued during the Age of Steam.
SUPERBLY CRAFTED! The precision-engraved reverse features an outstanding amount of fine details that will inspire pride and awe—for the history represented in this collector-friendly design, and for the locomotives that fascinate rail enthusiasts of all ages.
THREE FAMOUS LOCOMOTIVES! CN 2304, 6400, and 6060 represent 100 years of history, progress and evolution, from CN’s early fleet of steam cabs to the diesel-electric workhorses of the modern era.
MAPPING CN’S IMPACT! In the background, a stylized rail map illustrates CN’s impact across Canada and highlights its traditional role of keeping Canadians connected from coast to coast.
INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins!
LIMITED WORLDWIDE MINTAGE! Only 1,000 coins available worldwide!


Designed by Tony Bianco, your coin features a side-by-side view of three Canadian National Railway (CN) engines that have powered progress in Canada during the last 100 years. On the far right is No. 6060, one of the last Mountain steam locomotives delivered to CN. Next is Locomotive 6400, a class U-4-a Confederation steam locomotive that was used for the Royal Visit in 1939. In the foreground, CN 2304 is a GE ES44DC model that represents today’s efficient diesel freight locomotives. 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 “200 DOLLARS”, the commemorative dates “1919” and “2019”, and the word “CANADA”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


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