Our featured speaker for this meeting is art medal enthusiast William Waychison.
Bill’s presentation is an update to the one presented at the RCNA 2022 Convention.
His talk focuses on a selection of works by Susan Taylor, award-winning Canadian medallic artist of world renown, and retired senior engraver at the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM).
Detailed and described are a selection of coins designed and/or engraved by Taylor for the RCM, including a few that some collectors may not recognize as her work.
Also presented are several of Taylor’s cast or struck medals, several of which have not been previously publicized within the numismatic community. Included are her first cast medal Tom Thompson (1998), which led to many commissions; and Remembrance (2016), which won the American Medallic Sculpture Association (AMSA) 2016 American Medal of the Year Award. The presentation closes with her 2018 FIDEM Congress Medal, issued in Ottawa.
The various components of the latter design are examined as to how they contribute to the significance of the composition, which was inspired by the 100th Anniversary of the 1918 (Canadian) Federal Franchise of Woman’s Right to Vote.
Meetings are held every 4th Tuesday of the month at Edithvale Community Centre, 131 Finch Ave. West, North York, M2N 2H8
