Description

We’re marking CN’s centennial year with a 25-cent coin that connects the past with the present. The unique red and black freight train—it’s a familiar sight on today’s tracks, which wrap around the coin’s rim. While the rail map hints at CN’s legacy, the engraved steam locomotive is a more nostalgic nod to a time when these chugging and whistling engines criss-crossed a young Canada.
