• This is the fifth coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s exciting O Canada ½ oz silver coin series.

• Your coin is rendered in fine silver (99.99% pure).
Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo’s design features a scene from the perspective of someone sitting in the bow of a canoe. A happy family—a man in a Muskoka chair on a dock, and four children playing in the cool lake waters—waves in greeting. Your coin also features an extremely detailed background of a balcony-fronted cabin, a smooth rocky outcropping of a wooded shoreline, a sailboat floating in the distance, and a sky filled with stylized sunbeams. Framing the entire image is a polished outer band engraved with the words “CANADA,” the date “2013,” the face value of “10 DOLLARS” and a small stylized Muskoka chair symbol.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by customized full-colour beauty box.
An ideal coin for new fine silver collectors, or gift for people who enjoy all things Canadian!
