“Northern Ontario’s most popular tourist attraction”
The Big Nickel is a nine-metre (30 ft) replica of a 1951 Canadian nickel, located at the grounds of Dynamic Earth in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. The twelve-sided nickel is located on a small hill overlooking the intersection of Municipal Road 55 and Big Nickel Drive at the westernmost end of the Gatchell neighbourhood. The Big Nickel celebrated its 45th anniversary on July 22, 2009 with a "birthday party" on the grounds of Dynamic Earth, including a display of coins from Science North's Inco Coin Collection
The address is actually : 122 Big Nickel Mine Dr :)
Amazing to see in person! A bonus was to see King George on the back instead of Queen Elizabeth! Is it possible to change the name to the correct spelling- Big Nickel?
Free to see the nickel, very few people, plenty of parking.
