Regular price $100.00

This fine silver coin recreates Franklin Carmichael's iconic painting, Houses, Cobalt. Born on May 4, 1890, in Orillia, Ontario, Franklin Carmichael showed artistic potential at a young age. As a boy, he decorated carriages in his father’s carriage shop. The graphic scrollwork allowed him to hone design skills he would use his entire life. In Houses, Cobalt (c. 1931-1932), he used colour linocut to depict the town of Cobalt. This town had been a boom town after the discovery of silver, but was largely in decline by the 1920s when a number of artists were attracted by its rugged landscape and abandoned mines.

All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
