A famous landmark in Sudbury, the Big Nickel stands at thirty feet high and is about 24 inches thick.The Big Nickel is made from two vertical columns and some iron pieces that frame the first layer. Plywood makes up the middle section and then the exterior is covered with an outer coating of sheet metal.In 1964, the Big Nickel was first erected and since then it has been uprooted several times to various locations throughout Sudbury, Ontario.
