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.

      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 ??!!!?!!!

                      I just received the loon in the mail today. The coin comes in a hard plastic holder that is being help in a plastic hold. I wish you could get the collector case with the first coin. The coin is beautiful though and just what I was hoping it would be.

                          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.

                            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.

                            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.

                            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"

                            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.

                          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.

                            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.

                            Free collector cases that hold all the coins in a subscription are provided when you subscribe, so individual beauty boxes are not provided.
