Joel Kimmel and The Royal Canadian Mint

unnamed-1

“This collector coin celebrates the 100 year anniversary of the Last Spike, the completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway that linked eastern Canada to the west.

I was asked to depict a 1914-era steam train traveling over the Grand Trunk Bridge in Saskatoon. This is the type of dream job that is such a dream that it doesn’t even make the list of dream jobs, it seems so unattainable. I never thought I’d have my artwork on a coin and I couldn’t be happier about it.”
