This sterling coin is from a series of art ingots which were made by the Hamilton Mint called The Countries of the World. This is the ingot for Canada. On the side that reads Canada there is a horse carrying a member of the Royal Mounted Police. Behind the Mountie is a stand of trees. The opposing side has the image of the Tower of Victory and Peace in Ottawa. In the foreground is one of the guards in ceremonial uniform. The portions in the photos that show dark or blue have a mirror finish which is reflecting the camera and is not really dark. Along the edge it is marked STERLING. It also has 4 small circles. They are difficult to make out but I think the first circle has the letter C. Next looks like a joined HM, I assume for Hamilton Mint. The next one has the number 76 and the last has the latter P. This was purchased from the mint during the late 1970's or early 1980's. Each ingot in the series came with a 3 1/2" by 6" sheet of paper with statistics and a history of the country. This comes enclosed in its original plastic capsule and the fact sheet.

It measures 1" in diameter and weighs approximately 6.9 dwt. or 10.7 grams. I have never handled this without gloves or cleaned it but it has some discoloration along the edge.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
