# 1051 - Transport in Canada - Part 3

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 third: the 2002 $20 "The Gray-Dort".

This coin weights 31.103g with silver purity of 92.5% and Proof finish. Its mintage was 11,981 units and the issue price was CAD $59.95.

The affordable, high quality, Ontario-built Gray-Dort Model 25-SM became one of Canada's most popular cars. Between 1916 and 1924, over 26,000 Gray-Dorts were produced. Today, only about 50 remain.

The reverse was designed by John Mardon and engraved by Cosme Saffioti.

No spelling error here, it really is Gray-Dort and not Gray-Dart. An Ontario auto manufacturer 1915 to 1925, quite dapper this automobile.
