# 1049 - Transport in Canada - Part 2

The info below comes from the Royal Canadian Mint's COA (Certificate of Authenticity) of this coin or from https://en.numista.com/ , or from https://www.wikipedia.org/.

The Royal Canadian Mint issued a series of twelve coins between 2000 and 2003 commemorating Canadian achievements in transportation, depicting the form of transportation: land, sea, or rail.

I have only five of them and this is the second: the 2001 $20 "The Scotia".

This coin weights 31.103g with silver purity of 92.5% and Proof finish. Its mintage was 13,942 units and the issue price was CAD $59.95.

Built in Hamilton, Ontario in 1861, The Scotia was the first locomotive in Canada to be built with a steel boiler in order to reduce heat loss and generate more power.

The reverse was designed by Don Curley and engraved by William Woodruff.
