Ghosts, unexplained events and haunting s… there is no shortage of these stories from across Canada. Many have been told and retold so often that fact and fiction are nearly indistinguishable from one another. Canadians of all ages delight in sharing these tales of life and death, of love and tragedy, and of duty and devotion—including the haunting story of the headless brakeman, as retold by this second coin in the Haunted Canada series of lenticular coins.
A beautiful gift for those who love both ghost stories and tragic love stories, and a great addition to any specialty coin collection.
On Newfoundland and Labrador's Bell Island, a restless female spirit is said to haunt the marshes near Dobbin's Garden. She appears in two forms: one, as a beautiful woman dressed in white; the other, as a frightening old woman. Men who have dared to walk through the area have gone missing for days, only to emerge unaware of any passage of time. But what they do remember is the sudden apparition of a grotesque old woman moving toward them, pushing them to the ground, while the smell of death hangs in the air.
A thrilling and original gift for those who enjoy a good ghost story.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
