2017 $10 FINE SILVER COIN CELEBRATING CANADA’S 150TH: PEYTO LAKE- 155072Based on a photograph by Canadian nature photographer Missy Mandel, the reverse features vibrant colour over detailed engraving that showcases the famous mountain landscape of Banff National Park. The viewpoint from the Bow Summit Lookout affords a sweeping view of the forested valley below, where the partly clouded sky has cast shadows over the terrain. Sunlight shines through the clouds and enhances the colourful appearance of Peyto Lake, which steals the spotlight with its dreamlike, turquoise hue. The glacier-fed waters are nestled among the Rocky Mountains, where snow-capped peaks add a majestic quality to the scenery as they seemingly rise up to touch the sky. The reverse also features the engraved word “CANADA” and the dates “1867-2017” to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.$40.04 Add to cart
CELEBRATION OF SPRING: LILAC BLOSSOMS- 159083
The reverse design by Canadian artist Jan Poynter combines life-like colour and detailed engraving to recreate the springtime display of a lilac in full bloom. This depiction showcases the Preston lilac (Syringa x prestoniae), which was created in 1920 at the Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa, Ontario, by Canada’s first female hybridist: Isabella Preston (1881-1965). The realistic representation of this late blooming, Canadian variety is in keeping with the style of traditional botanical illustrations, which is particularly fitting given the lilac’s rich history. The application of vivid mauve and deep green colours capture the magnificence of the blooms and foliage; but a separate depiction of a branch beneath the shrub highlights the more tubular, open-flowering nature of the Preston ‘Isabella’ (Villosae Group) blossoms. To the left is a close-up view of the purple blooms that have become synonymous with the uplifting fragrance and colours of spring.
- Celebrate the colourful beauty of the season with an equally colourful coin!
- Detailed engraving presents the lilac in a traditional style. It’s a fitting ode to a plant species steeped in history around the world, but also in Canada, where a uniquely Canadian variety was introduced almost 100 years ago!
- The application of soft mauve and deep green colour recreate the pleasing hues of a lilac shrub in full bloom—you can almost smell its sweet fragrance in the close-up view of the bloom’s perfectly curled petals!
- A marvellous addition to any floral or nature-themed collection, and a superb gift for the nature lover in all of us!
