Peoples' view of the world changed forever when modern art began representing objects with simple lines, shapes, patterns and dimension. Science and art were merged forever, because, at its heart, modern art is all about geometry.

This approach fuelled modern technology by providing a mathematical basis for computer-generated imagery (CGI). Polygons could be used to create incredibly lifelike objects, but when Canada's gaming industry tried to adopt the same technique, a problem emerged: realism requires far too many polygons to support the data-intensive, real-time processing that's needed during a video game.

The solution: low poly, a new visual style that delivered smooth gameplay by using fewer polygons. Today, low poly would be considered unsophisticated and crude, but in the 1990s, it was revolutionary and propelled Canada's gaming industry forward.

This breakthrough series portrays some of Canada's greatest icons using geometric shapes, and honours low poly as an art form in its own right.

About the first coin design: The Loon
Designed by Canadian artist Calder Moore, your coin features a stylized portrait of two common loons in a pristine, natural setting that speaks of the majesty of Canada's wilderness! Geometry, technology and art intersect as the entirety of the image is presented in a low poly art style, bringing together multiple polygon shapes in this depiction of an adult loon and its offspring. In the foreground, the adult loon is a picture of grace and elegance as it calmly floats on the surface of a blue lake, surrounded by the tranquility of an evergreen forest that is rich with detail and colour. Underwater, the young loon demonstrates the species' remarkable diving abilities as it uses its webbed feet to propel it forward like a torpedo, its beak quickly closing in on the small fish that will provide it with a well-earned aquatic feast.

ONE OF A KIND!

Love this set! The landscapes are beautifully depicted and colorized. The geometry symbols in silver catch the light. The loon is the most beautiful loon coin I have ever seen. The maple leaf is the most unique and colorful maple leaf coin. The colors are intense and the coins are the perfect size.

This is a very beautiful set of coins, every coin is very detailed and represents a Canadian symbol. I just received the maple leaf coin and it is certainly the focal coin I the series. Very well done. Each time I look at the coins I notice another aspect, missed previously. The display case is also very well made.

Everyone likes something different. I found this set unique unlike other sets if have collected. Amazingly enough each one of the coin represents what is currently on Canadian coins today - Loon, Polar Bear, Beaver, Caribou, and the Maple Leaf (Penny). Displays really well in a cabinet.

Ships me the first 3 coins of the series in a nice box and clamshell case. Then this poor excuse for a 4th coin arrives taped up in a little ball. Certificate wrinkled and no box or she'll to go along with rest of the collection. Called customer service and she was no help at all. Was very rude and did not offer any solution to this. I will never spend a cent again with a place that does business this way. Now I have a 5 coin collection of which is gonna sit in a drawer because the 4th coin was sent to me wrapped in bubble wrap and nothing else ??!!!?!!!

This is one of the most unique presentations of metal art EVER. I love love love my set. The case is great with art on outer cover so to easily find it in the pile of boxes in the closet. Art on each coin is impressive and soooo Canadian. TY TY TY RCM and great artists.

I am interested in the set. But I do not know if it is too late to start collecting the coins. Do you still have all the coins available for me to start the set? Thanks

Jose

Yes - if you order this subscription you will receive all 5 coins in the set as well as the collector case.

What type of wood is Case made with?

Renee

Hi Renee! It's made from maple.

Jamie (Product Team)

Is the whole set $100.00 or is each coin in the set $100.00?

Nell

Hi Nell, Each pure silver coloured coin in this subscription is $99.95.

Chad

When subscribing to "Geometry in Art" series and do not receive the "Beauty Box" for each coin, are we able to purchase the Beauty Boxes. The boxes add to the series in my opinion.

Renee

Hi Renee, as this is a subscription with a fancy display case that houses all the coins, you are correct, you do not receive individual beauty boxes per coin. Unfortunately, you can not currently purchase individual beauty boxes or clamshells. This shortfall will be passed onto the product marketing team.

In the "Geometry in Art" series Collector Box is there room in box for the Certificates?

Renee

There most certainly is! They are neatly tucked away in the wood case.

Jamie (Product Team)

On the subscription page for the "Geometry in Art" series it states "receive collector case with 4th coin" and in this question panel an answer was given that collector case given with 5th coin...which is it please?

Renee

Hi Renee, good catch, the website has been updated with the proper information which is that the coin case ships with the fourth coin, the beaver. This means if you were to subscribe today, you would receive one coin per month.

Is it possible to purchase individual coins from a subscription set?

Roberta

Sorry, these coins are only available as a set from Mint.ca.

Since all 5 coins are released currently, is there a way of getting all 5 coins (with collector box) immediately instead of getting one per month? Thanks!

AT

Hi AT, Yes, you can receive all 5 coins and the free collector case in one shipment but you'll have to call our customer service department so that they can change the default delivery schedule from one-coin per month to sending all coins at once. Our customer service number is 1-800-267-1871 (Canada)

Why does write-up about series state in one sentence "receive collector case with 5th coin" and in another it states "receive case with 4th coin"

Renee

Are we able to purchase the Beauty Boxes. Seems unfair that we don't get the Beauty Boxes as should a person want to sell coins individually then need beauty Box. Also they are very nice and would complete collection.

Renee

Hi Renee, Currently, our Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshells with graphic beauty boxes are not available for purchase by themselves, but it's a good suggestion. I'll forward it to the appropriate people. If you think you will sell one or more of the five geometry coins perhaps you should consider buying the coins individually, since the coins come with a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with graphic beauty box when purchased as a single. Each of the 5 coins are still available for purchase as singles. This way you wouldn't have a coin(s) missing from the 5-coin collector case that comes with the 5-coin subscription.
