A FIRST: Three Emily Carr coins in a beautiful wooden case with a full colour illustrated beauty box.

Legendary Canadian artist Emily Carr was born in Victoria, British Columbia, in 1871. Despite setbacks throughout her adult life—including ongoing indifference toward her work in her home province—she was acknowledged late in life as one of Canada's most important contemporary artists. Her depictions of Pacific Northwest Coast native villages and artefacts have helped to preserve these cultures' changing ways of life, while her haunting portrayals of the landscape of that region created a new mythos of the Pacific wilderness. Carr was the first West Coast artist to approach the Northwest Coastal people and their artefacts as a serious subject of artistic study.

    Comments about 3-Coin Set- Emily Carr - Mintage: 100 (2014):

    This is a beautiful and rare set. I am a huge fan of Emily Carr, she was ahead of her time during her creative years as an artist.

    With a mintage of only 100 for the platinum and the gold coin, it is rare for the RCM to produce such a low mintage for one ounce coins!

    I believe that this set will greatly appreciate in value and is excellent value for the money
