Lake Huron, bordered by the province of Ontario on its eastern shore and the state of Michigan on its western shore, is the second-largest of the five Great Lakes and the fifth-largest freshwater lake in the world. First Nations people, including the Hurons for whom the lake is named, have inhabited Lake Huron and its surrounding watershed for at least 2,000 to 3,000 years. The European 'discovery' of the lake was made by Samuel de Champlain in 1615, accompanied by Étienne Brulé and their First Nations guides.

Lake Huron is fed by a number of rivers as well as the Strait of Mackinac that joins Huron with Lake Michigan. According to some experts, Lakes Huron and Michigan are, hydrologically, a single body of water: Lake Michigan-Huron. This two-sided water mass, were it formally recognized as a single body of water, would be the world's largest freshwater lake. This massive water system drains into Lake Erie through the Detroit and St. Clair Rivers.

A stunning gift for friends or family who love natural wonders, geography, history and the beautiful Canadian landscape. Order yours today!

Special features:
•   Your coin, Lake Huron, is the fifth and last coin in our exciting 5-coin Great Lakes series.
•   Lake Huron is sunk into the face of the coin, with the varying depths highlighted in relief and multiple frosting techniques, and then filled with vibrant translucent blue enamel. This unique approach to showcasing the lake highlights the depths that typically remain hidden from view.
•   The lake shape and depths are based on bathymetric data from the Canadian Hydrographic Service.
•   The subscription that this coin belongs to is sold out, which means that this proof-finish fine silver enamelled coin will be sought after.
•   GST/HST exempt.

Coin design:
Your coin features an interpretation of a bathymetric map of Lake Huron highlighted with coloured enamel.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a black sleeve.

Blue not Huron Blue

By Hawe

Comments about 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin - Lake Huron - Mintage: 10000 (2015):

excellent concept and design. I love the dark blue of Lake Superior and blue waters of Lake Huron. It would be easy with your picture series expertise to have separate shades for the lakes.

            My brother is a long time collector of Canadian coins. We live in the US. When he originally told me about the Great Lakes coins the idea interested me. I got online and after determining the other four Great Lakes coins were available I ordered all four of the previous released coins. I ordered this coin within 5 minutes of receiving the email announcement to complete the set.

              The painting depicted on this beautiful coin by Canadian artist Robert Ross is a wonderful example of a landscape in the style of the Group of Seven. I give these coins as gifts to our international suppliers when they visit.

              I just received my set of Great Lakes silver coins, as always just like a kid at Christmas. When I opened the set , I was not disappointed. The quality of coin, design, features, this is what The Canadian Mint is known for around the world. Excellence to be proud of! Keep up the great work.

                  This coin completes a fantastic very original series.
                  For the finale we now have the most geographically appealing Lake of all the Great Lakes.
                  This coin wonderfully depicts all the unique aspects of Lake Huron including Strait of Mackinac, Georgian Bay, Manitoulin Island - the largest freshwater island in the world, and the North Channel...and somewhere in there you may even spot one or two of the majestic 30,000 islands.
                  Well done!!!
