Use black light to enhance the stunning fire rainbow! Order today!

A rainbow is welcome after any rainstorm, but in Canada, a rarer and more exciting sight is a fire rainbow—like the one featured here on your coin. Amplified by a blacklight-activated effect, this rainbow-coloured “cloud” kicks off a new series of technology-enhanced coins that puts unusual sky phenomena within easy reach.

Back by popular demand, a meteorological-themed 3-coin series! Order the first coin today!

Special features:
  • FIRST COIN, NEW SERIES! The fire rainbow is the first of three of Canada’s Sky Wonders, the naturally occurring optical illusions that are a rare occurrence in our skies. The next two coins in the 3-coin series include:
    • “Steve” (expected availability of August 2019)
    • Light Pillars (expected availability of October 2019)
  • A TECHNOLOGICAL WONDER! When viewed under UV light, the rainbow colours appear more vivid than ever.
  • SELECTIVE COLOUR! The partial use of colour keeps the focus on the phenomenon, while the landscape is brought to life by fine engraving.
  • LOOK DOWN, NOT UP! The design makes you feel like you are outside looking up at the sky, but the experience is sized to fit in the palm of your hand.
  • DIFFERENT TECHNOLOGY EVERY TIME! All three coins feature a different lighting effect that best highlights each sky phenomenon.
  • INCLUDES A BLACK LIGHT FLASHLIGHT! The artistry of your coin can be appreciated in any light, but viewing it under a black light (included) activates the special technology!
  • LOW MINTAGE! Limited to 5,000 coins worldwide.
  • 1 OZ. 99.99% PURE SILVER! Your coin is crafted from one ounce of 99.99% pure silver.


Designed by Tony Bianco, your coin features an engraved lakeside setting on a mid-summer day. Rolling hills rise up towards the colour portion of the design, where the sun hangs high in the blue-coloured sky. Sunlight passing though the cirrus clouds produces a spectrum-coloured band known as a fire rainbow, which is enhanced by a blacklight-activated effect. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • The sun must be high in the sky—higher than 58 degrees above the horizon—to produce a fire rainbow effect. Because of this, the phenomenon is very rare occurrence north of the 55th parallel and south of the equator, although the odds of seeing one in Canada are greater during the mid-summer months.
  • Within the cirrus clouds, the hexagonal plate ice crystals must also be aligned with their faces parallel to the ground in order to create the rainbow-like optical illusion.


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