# 1053 - Transport in Canada - Part 4

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 fourth: the 2002 $20 "D-10 Locomotive".

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.

Fulfilling the needs of a growing population and ever-increasing trade, the Canadian Pacific D10 Locomotive (No. 926) is typical of the extremely versatile and highly successful "Ten Wheeler" locomotives used by Canadian Pacific from 1905 through World War II.

The reverse was designed by Dan Fell and engraved by William Woodruff.

A very nice coin! I'm sure @silvertop has told you we once were avid train buffs. We owned a retail shop that sold all scales of train. I was inducted into the Cinder Sniffers, a live steam group that ran live steam model trains on a scale big enough to ride, but small enough to haul from place to place. I even got to haul a load of passengers! It was fantastic, with all the coal smoke and cinders blowing through my hair!

There is something so nostalgic and romantic about trains. I've always loved them. Thank you for sharing this beautiful coin! Take care and have a good weekend!

How nice my friend, I need to look into adding these to my collection, very nice!
In the US they would call this wheel configuration a 4-6-0 Four up front, six in the middle, and some Locomotives have additional wheels in the rear.😀
