STEP INTO A MOMENT AND BECOME THE ARTIST! Low mintage, order yours today before they're all gone!

Imagine coming upon a setting so inspiring, it leaves you yearning to preserve the splendour of that particular moment in time—that is the essence of painting en plein air, where nature serves as both muse and studio, allowing the artist to render their soul-stirring view directly onto the canvas. Your coin combines new technologies (texturized colour, and canvas effect) to re-create the en plein air experience, complete with textured brushstrokes! The end result is an ode to the beauty of nature, and a visual reproduction of a moment that rouses the spirit.

A gorgeous coin you will want to show to family and friends! Order today!

  • NEW! TWO COLOUR TECHNOLOGIES MAKE THEIR DEBUT!

Designed by Canadian artist Elizabeth Sim, your coin creates an immersive viewing experience by blurring the line between reality and perception. Stretching across the entire reverse, the borderless background image offers a photo-realistic close-up of a flowerbed—specifically one that showcases several Canada 150 tulips in full bloom. In contrast, the easel-mounted canvas in the foreground is positioned in a way that suggests the viewer is in fact the artist, as the eye naturally lingers on the finished painting of the white and red-flamed tulip. This simulation of a plein air painting experience is further enhanced by the integration of two advanced technologies: texturized colour, which gives the design its sense of depth and dimension by subtly raising the easel and canvas; and canvas effect, which artfully adds a touch of realism by mimicking the surface textures of a finished painting—including the artist's brushstrokes.


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