Through distinctive brush strokes and bold colours, the oil paintings of Canadian artist Tom Thomson (1877-1917) 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 Pine Island, Georgian Bay (1916).

Pine Island, Georgian Bay (1916) beautifully illustrates the progression in Thomson's style, from capturing the landscape as he saw it to how he felt it.

    Beautiful reproduction of one of my favorite Tom Thomson paintings. The RCM did an excellent job of reproducing it within a small surface area, and the strike is excellent.
