Tom Thomson (1877–1917) looms large in Canadian art history. He is celebrated as one of Canada's most influential and popular artists of the early 20th century. Nature was his constant muse, and Thomson infused his art with a vibrant spirit and dynamism. He encouraged other fellow artists to join him in capturing the beauty of Canada's rugged landscape on canvas—a profound source of inspiration that ultimately led to the formation of the famed Group of Seven.

Through distinctive brush strokes and bold colours, the oil paintings of Canadian artist Tom Thomson transformed how Canada's northern landscape was perceived at home and abroad. The Royal Canadian Mint celebrates one of Canada's most influential artists of the early twentieth century by recreating details from this famous painting Spring Ice (1916).

A magnificent gift or collectible item for art appreciators! Hurry and order yours today!

Special features:
  • This is only the second time that Thomson's artwork is featured on a coin, and a rare opportunity to own expertly engraved renditions of well-known Thomson paintings.
  • Each brushstroke from the painting has been recreated through expert engraving, which exemplifies the Royal Canadian Mint engravers' extraordinary level of precision and craftsmanship.
  • A wonderful and valuable addition to any nature-, Canadian art- or history-themed collection.
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt and has a limited worldwide mintage.

About the Design:
This coin offers an engraved recreation of Tom Thomson's landscape paintings: a one-ounce 99.99% pure silver coin featuring Spring Ice (1916). These smaller-scale renditions boast an astonishing amount of detail. Precision engraving masterfully recreates every brushstroke from the original canvases, with beautiful detailing and raised elements that recapture the depth and subtleties of Thomson's work: the crispness of a spring day in the wilderness lends itself well to the silver coin, with leafless trees set against the open water that still carries some icy evidence of winter on its surface.

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

                  Such a stunning detailed coin from the works of Tom Thompson, a real Canadian piece of art. Of all the Group of Seven artists, Tom Thompson is my favorite. I was just thrilled to have be able to have gotten this coin.
                  The attention to detail is awesome in this coin.
