FEATURES DIAMOND GLITTER! Re-creates the light-reflecting qualities of coloured snow and ice! Order today!

When it comes to epic migrations, no other bird species rivals the incredible journey of the Arctic tern (Sterna paradisaea). This summer resident of Northern Canada completes an estimated annual trek of 40,000 kilometres as it travels between the two poles, wintering on the pack ice of Antarctica but returning time and time again to its Arctic breeding grounds.

A gorgeous design you will admire for years! Hold it in your hand and turn it slowly and watch how the diamond glitter catches the light! Order today!

Special features:
  • DIAMOND GLITTER! Selective use of diamond glitter adds an intensely glittering effect on your coin that re-creates the light-reflecting qualities of daylight snow and ice and the colours they create.
  • FINE DIAMOND PARTICLES! A dusting of fine diamond particles was carefully applied to your coin to ensure an even layering over the select design elements.
  • NEVER LOSES SPARKLE! The dazzling effect on your coin is sealed to protect it from the elements so that your coin never loses its sparkle!
  • SECOND COIN IN GLISTENING NORTH SERIES! This is the second coin in the Glistening North series that combines technology and art!
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.
  • 1 OUNCE 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN! Your coin is GST/HST exempt!
  • LOW MINTAGE: Only 7,500 coins will be made worldwide.

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Derek C. Wicks, your coin combines finely detailed engraving, selective colour and diamond glitter to capture the majestic beauty of Canada's northern coastline. In the foreground, an Arctic tern (Sterna paradisaea) is depicted in flight, its forked tail elongating its slender profile while its long wings are outstretched in an upward stroke. The tern prefers to nest in a colony; thus, it is depicted alongside two other terns depicted in different flight positions above the painted grey waters. While these engraved birds are exquisitely rendered, the Arctic scenery is equally captivating: in the background, the engraved iceberg sparkles in the light thanks to the sealed layer of fine diamond particles, which mimic the glacial ice's glistening appearance.

Packaging:

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

                      I am an artist and this coin represents a sketch I did about Canada's Arctic region where we love our geographic affiliation as a family and a professional affiliation.
