This 3-coin series honours three icons of the Canadian wilderness with wildlife portraits that feature an unprecedented combination of art styles! A colour-over-engraved background serves as the perfect backdrop to classic Canadian fauna, which are rendered in a contemporary mix of low poly art and a true-to-life style. Through their instinctive movements, each one shatters the boundaries of their geometric form (and the reverse image itself), either leaping, flying or rising up to make the transition from abstract to realism.

About your first coin design:

Designed by Canadian artist Claude Thivierge, the first coin in your 3-coin series fuses two different art styles—low poly art and a more true-to-life style—for a contemporary take on a classic wilderness icon. On this misty, moonlit night, Canis lupus moves swiftly and silently down a rocky outcrop in Canada’s boreal forest. Bold colour over the engraved relief brings the landscape to life through a wealth of textural details that add a realistic touch to this multi-layered design. The coin’s silver surface is visible within the two engraved wolves, which are comprised of multiple polygon shapes that define the low poly art style. In spite of the straight lines and pointed edges, each shape is carefully positioned to convey the natural curves of the grey wolf’s familiar outline, while various finishing techniques mimic the effect of light and shadows. One wolf’s instinctive leap suddenly creates the illusion of movement, transformation and the “shattering” of boundaries—those of its geometric form, and the reverse image itself—as its depiction artfully transitions from abstract to realism. The word “CANADA”, the face value “20 DOLLARS” and the year “2018” are engraved along the rim that frames much of the reverse image. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Packaging:

Your three coins are encapsulated and presented individually in Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshells with custom beauty boxes.
