Special features:
•   The third of four-coins in the Royal Canadian Mint's popular banknote series is an exceptional marriage of art history, engraving, and design, featuring one of history's most ancient symbols—the lion—as it was uniquely and romantically depicted in an early banknote vignette by Canada's Northern Crown Bank. The Northern Crown Bank was purchased by The Royal Bank of Canada in July 1918.
•   The face value is framed in scrollwork adapted from early banknote design for a beautifully classic effect.
•   Stunning engraving brings to life every detail of the striking lion portrait depicted in the original vignette as the depth and lustre adds to your enjoyment.
•   A beautiful gift or collectible for art aficionados and fans of Canadian history, engraving arts, art technique, art history, and the history of banknote design.
•   Own a historical artwork of exceptional craftsmanship minted in 99.99% pure silver.
•   Your coin is GST/HST exempt with a limited worldwide mintage.

Design:
More than 30,000 years ago, ancient humans painted prides of hunting lions on cave walls. From these earliest moments, the lion emerged as an emblem of protection, military might, royalty, and supernatural power. Today, the lion is one of the most common heraldic symbols, used in the emblems, arms, and currency of hundreds of nations worldwide.

The reverse of this 99.99% fine silver coin features a re-creation of the stunning portrait of a lion taken from an early twentieth century vignette created by the British American Banknote Company. The King of the Jungle is brought to life in painstaking detail as Royal Canadian Mint engravers capture the characteristic line engraving of early banknote design. Augmenting the masterful work of the original engraving, here the distinctive curve of each muscle and strand of fur, the striking shading of the lion and his dramatic mountainous surroundings, and the minute detail of the scrollwork and lettering are taken from original banknote designs and rendered in pure silver.

Packaging:

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

Magnificent Coin

Absolutely beautiful coin as expected. I love it. Only problem is that the plastic protective coin holder does not stay sealed, almost as if the coin may be too thick or the coin is too big for the case. So be very careful when removing the coin from its package to look at both sides of the coin because the the plastic protective case will likely come apart. Definitely not a sealed protective plastic case for the proof.

I think this is a great bargain for such a nice and big coin. Not disappointing at all. Hope there will be more $200 coins like this in the future. Sorry for any I already missed in the past. Truly an incredible coin worth owning. Highly recommended.

Keep it. Craftsmanship of Lion, Good Design. With Currency Value of $5 is GOOD, yet for Higher Face Value will be much better.
