Spooky 3D Coin of Canada

14 Sep 2021  Tue

Canadians love a good ghost story, and there are plenty to be found across Canada. HI Ottawa Jail Hostel, said to be one of the most haunted buildings in Canada. The former prison-turned hostel is the setting for a fun ghost story that unfolds on the 3d lenticular coin.

The two-image lenticular design by Emmanuel Julian Madail Monzon shows a ghostly encounter in one of Canada's most haunted buildings. The first image shows a visitor entering a former jail during an evening tour of the HI Ottawa Jail Hostel, where the bar door is left ajar.

When the coin is tilted, the door is closed and the eerie ghost of a former inmate—perhaps Patrick Whelan, who was hanged for the 1868 assassination of Thomas D'Arcy McGee, a Father of Confederation—appears behind the terrified visitor and looks directly at the viewer. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
