First coin design, the mountain goat:

Designed by Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi, the first coin in this subscription features an alpine scene beautifully crafted in colour. It is late spring and some lingering snow still covers the ground. Mountains rise to the left and right while a ridge of moraine from retreating glaciers dominates the centre of the scene. The ancient mound has long been reclaimed by nature, and is now covered with grass and spruce trees, but on closer examination, a mountain goat emerges from its sloping side. The goat's body is shaped by melting snow and exposed stone, while the trunks of wind-worn spruce trees stand as its legs and horns.


Your visual adventure begins with the customized display case that you will receive when you subscribe to the complete Landscape Illusions Series. It has an acrylic, semi-transparent lid with a silhouette design of a tree and all five animals hidden among the branches—a captivating and unforgettable presentation! This case is shipped with the first coin for the 5-coin subscription program.

Best of the series


It was so so hard to find the animal


New Waterford Nova scotia




This series has to be one of the most innovative designs that I have ever seen. Taking this collection out will be an interesting conversation piece as well as playing games of, "I spy with my little eye" or "What can you see?" This is a set for all ages to continually take out and "show off"! The case, with the glass top that comes with the first coin, is exquisite. Love, love this creative product development. Kudos RCM, for the innovative design of coins as well as to the lovely case that holds these works of art.

Incredible illusion


Amazing the ingenuity to create and achieve this outstanding series. The very low mintage of 5500 on this set for the price is great too.


Calgary, AB




I just received the first coin in the subscription and it exceeded my expectations. The mountain goat has a 3D effect with the image. The packaging is stunning. I love that the series represents the beauty of Canada in the nature scenes from coast to coast. I can't wait to receive the whole set. This would make a wonderful gift.

Hi, if I order the subscription, would each coin comes with it's own beauty box, and also there is a bonus glass box that could display all the coins? I read from other subscription that sometimes coins are shipping with plastic wrapping without any own box. Please clarify for this subscription. Thanks


When you order the subscription, the coins will come in a plastic wrapping without the box because they are meant to be displayed in the beautiful subscription box.

For the Landscape Illusion set, in the search bar I can search each coin individually and get results showing the design, the artist etc, but not for the Pronghorn Antelope. When I search "Pronghorn Antelope" it just comes back and shows the set as a whole. How can I view the individual details for this specific coin?


Hi Lori, Here's the link to the Pronghorn page;


If I am ordering this subscription in November, when Coin #5 is becoming available, how do I receive the coins? Is it on a monthly basis? Is it all at once? Thanks.


Hi Will, The default delivery schedule is one coin per month. If you'd like to receive all the coins at once please call our Customer Service Department (1-800-267-1871) and they can change the delivery schedule to send you everything in one shipment.


What is the size of case for the landscape illusions coins


Thank you for your question. It is approximately 220 mm x 145 mm.

I bought the 1st coin in a subscription "Mountain Goat allusion" When do the others become available.


Hi Jack, The coins will ship as follows Coin 2: Monarch Butterfly (priced at $99.95), available May, 2016 Coin 3: Salmon available July, 2016 Coin 4: Pronghorn Antelope available September, 2016 Coin 5: Snowy Owl available November, 2016


is the price a per coin issue or for set?


Hi Hoagie, The price is $99.95 per coin.


I would like to order only one of the subscription. I'm interested in the monarch butterfly coin. How would I go about just ordering that one.


Hi Lilly - these coins are only available in a subscription at this time.


Out of 5 coins why 3 are of 2016 and 2 are of 2017 when 2017 is still far away?


Thanks for the question. The later coins are launching closer to the end of 2016 therefore we are dating them for 2017. Hope that helps!


You state that this is a 4 coin subscription set; however, it is a 5 coin subscription. Please read your copy on this Illusion Subscription set.
