RCM senior engraver to speak at Timmins Coin Club meeting

Canadian artist and senior engraver for the Royal Canadian Mint Susan Taylor will lead a presentation at the Timmins Coin Club’s third fall meeting on Nov. 11.

Starting at 1:30 p.m. at the Timmins Museum, the meeting will see Taylor highlight a selection of her coins and medals. With about 35 years of experience, Taylor is involved in producing circulation and commemorative coins by creating designs, sculpting in low relief and preparing tooling for the manufacture of coins and medals. Over the years, Taylor has witnessed the ongoing evolution of mint engraving, which now uses computer technology to produce the master tooling.

She has also worked with the World Maritime University and Royal Canadian Geographical Society and is a past president of the Medallic Art Society of Canada and a vice-delegate to the Federation Internationale de Medaille.

The reverse of this 2012 commemorative dollar was engraved by Taylor. It marks the 25th anniversary of the release of the first loonie.

EVERYONE WELCOME

Non-members are welcome to attend the Nov. 11 meeting in Timmins.
