But this ghost story has never been featured on a coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint-until now.

Regardless of special packaging, the Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. The reverse design by Canadian artist Neil Hamelin travels to the shores of Atlantic Canada, where two local sailors push a dory into the rough surf.
The reverse includes the words "CANADA" and "2022". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The viewer is sure of one fact, and that's the sighting. That's where the story takes root!
The unknown makes for a great mystery! Some have theorized that the apparition is St. Some have suggested it is caused by an atmospheric discharge.
Others think it could be caused by a phosphorus discharge from the depths of Chaleur Bay, like the "will o' the wisp" phenomenon, where a flame-like glow is seen at night in marshes and swampy areas. Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box. Items shown in pictures are similar to the actual items for sale.
