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. While CN 6218 hints at the historic steam engines of a bygone era, the more modern CN 2557 represents the workhorses of today. 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, a GE C9-44CW (“Dash 9”) diesel-electric locomotive built in December 1997 and rated at 4,400 horsepower. 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. Did you know… 6218: This steam engine was part of CN’s 6200-6234 series. It was one of just two 4-8-4 Northerns that were built and used for heavy freight and passenger service. It serviced runs in Canada and the United States until it was initially retired in 1959. But in 1964, a newly restored 6218 was put back into service for steam excursions. When it was permanently retired in 1971. CNR 6218 was one of the last steam engines to carry rail passengers in Canada. 2557: This locomotive is part of CN’s fleet of General Electric C9-44CW locomotives that are still the driving force for many Class I freight trains today. Better known as Dash 9 engines, the high-horsepower (4,400 hp), six-axle diesel locomotives were built from 1993 to 2004. They were one of the first to be equipped with a wide safety cab (represented by the letter “W” in the name) that has since become standard on modern-day locomotives. Packaging: Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
