A FIRST! Uses an advanced "Water Effect" colourization technique!

Algonquin Provincial Park in autumn is one of Canada's most beautiful visual treats. In the land that inspired world-renowned Canadian landscape painters Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, nature shows itself to those who are observant. Like Thomson, many nature enthusiasts take to Algonquin's waterways and trails to experience the back country in many forms, such as camping, canoeing, and fishing, and thus reconnecting one with nature. The Algonquin Highlands are the origins of six major rivers; the Nipissing, Amable du Fond, Petawawa, Bonnechere, Opeongo and lastly, the Madawaska. The mighty Madawaska River typifies the region's unique geography, as southern forests of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Lowlands meet the northern Boreal Forest at the southern edge Canadian Shield.

Ontario's first provincial park was established in 1893 to preserve the region's waterways and protect the land from human settlement. The area was already in use by loggers, who harvested its massive white and red pines for global export. Logging continued after the creation of the park; however officials sought to conserve stands of timber, so it may be harvested in perpetuity. Though it was originally about half of its current size, surrounding tracts of land were slowly added to the park in the century following its establishment. In 1992, Algonquin Park became a Canadian National Historic Site for its contribution to park management practice in Canada, its groundbreaking visitor interpretation approaches, its historic structures and buildings, and its role in inspiring the Canadian identity. Today it is one of Canada's most popular year-round destinations for outdoor recreation and camping, still maintains an active logging industry, and is an important centre for research in biology and environmental sciences.

Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Robert Ross your coin features an original painting of a set of rapids on the Madawaska River in the southern portion of Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario. Captured in stunning colour atop an engraved surface, the image depicts a view of the Madawaska from the Track and Tower trail near Cache Lake. The composition centres on churning rapids that splash and froth as they overtake the massive red-mauve granite outcroppings of the Park's bedrock. On the left and right sides of the image, and in the distant background at the top of the image, vast pines rise high into the bright blue sky, mixing with the crimson-tinged autumn foliage of deciduous trees and brush. The fiery orange of the fall trees is captured in reflection on the surface of the river in the lower portion of the image.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

Beautiful Waterfall Coin

This coin was beautiful in terms of the artistic aspect. However, I did not give it 5 stars because I was disappointed with the special water effect. The waterfall didn't stand out like I expected or looked 3D. I do like how colourful it is and look forward to the 2nd coin in the collection, which looks even more vivid. I do recommend it if you look beyond the 3D aspect of the coin and you appreciate the beauty of natural landscapes.

I picked one up at the Post Office on recommendation of employee simply because it was a 'first', unique, and wasn't part of a larger set. Overall the basic idea is interesting but I don't feel the wanted effect was achieved. The detail at magnification is 'grainy' and indistinct. The 'flow' effect is minimal and the water has no 'sheen'. As a first attempt, it is commendable but should be abandoned in favor of the better processes the mint excels at such as holography and multi-metals.
