The story, as told by the artist Jason Bouwman
The canoe has become as much a part of the Canadian visual lexicon as the Canada goose, the beaver and the maple leaf. This design shows a young person enjoying a recreational outing. The boy breaks from paddling to dip his hand in the water… and touches the past – the reflection reveals an early native paddler (or voyageur) in a traditional birch-bark canoe as it also appears on the early silver dollar of 1935.

            Comments about $20 for $20 Fine Silver Coin - Canoe (2011):

            Congratulations! To be honest, I do not own this coin. Unfortunately I wasn't aware of the Canoe '$20 for $20' when it was briefly available. I've been watching it, and I'm considering buying it from a dealer. With the recent "Kraus Coin of the Year" award, I'm sure the prices quoted by dealers will significantly increase. Still, "well done" to all at RCM who had a hand in producing this beautiful coin!

              Comments about $20 for $20 Fine Silver Coin - Canoe (2011):

              The thing that is so great about this coin is that is made of silver plus it will never loose its face value. It is nice to see a coin that can be placed in circulation if you wished to for the same amount of money you paid but that has silver in it. That is why I say that "everything old is new again". Before the late 1960's in the U.S. and Canada the coins from the 10 cents piece to the Dollar were made out of Silver and were meant to circulate. Of course I am planning on keeping my $20.00 coins and not placing them in circulation.

              I purchase proof sets, specimen sets,and many other coins. roles of everything each year. I also shop at the mint in Winnipeg once each year.
              I don't understand why we pay extra to have a coin wrapped. I don't think the bank's pay for their coins that are all in a roll?
              Tax on coins?

                            I think it's a lovely coin, and a great value! I like that I could go spend this coin for what I paid for it if I really wanted to. In this way it's a much better "deal" than other mint offerings.
