First coin design, the mountain goat:

Designed by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi, the first coin in this subscription features an alpine scene beautifully crafted in colour. It is late spring and some lingering snow still covers the ground. Mountains rise to the left and right while a ridge of moraine from retreating glaciers dominates the centre of the scene. The ancient mound has long been reclaimed by nature, and is now covered with grass and spruce trees, but on closer examination, a mountain goat emerges from its sloping side. The goat's body is shaped by melting snow and exposed stone, while the trunks of wind-worn spruce trees stand as its legs and horns.


Your visual adventure begins with the customized display case that you will receive when you subscribe to the complete Landscape Illusions Series. It has an acrylic, semi-transparent lid with a silhouette design of a tree and all five animals hidden among the branches—a captivating and unforgettable presentation! This case is shipped with the first coin for the 5-coin subscription program.
