The Royal Canadian Mint has released new gold Proof coins in tribute to inventor Alexander Graham Bell. Scottish-born inventor and scientist Alexander Graham Bell famously founded American Telephone & Telegraph, but he called Canada home for many years. One hundred years after his death, he is the subject of a new gold coin from the Royal Canadian Mint.

Designed by Canadian artist Simon Ng, The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The denomination of 100 DOLLARS is placed just under the Queen’s likeness.

The coin’s reverse features a portrait of Alexander Graham Bell and a depiction of the liquid transmitter that served as an experimental telephone in 1876. The outer rim features a mix of laser-engraved patent drawings and blueprint illustrations of some of Bell’s many inventions. To the right of the primary design is the text CANADA along the rim highlighting the laser engraved illustrations.
