This fascinating 2016 colour $20 ultra low mintage coin is the third in the series that showcases the art of illusion and brings you two images for the price of one—it features a stunning Canadian landscape and an optical illusion of wildlife.  The coin weighs just over one ounce of pure silver. This coin features a waterfall, but on closer examination a salmon emerges. The mintage is extremely low at just 5,500. As pure silver coins issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

The reverse design features a waterfall in magnificent colour.  A salmon can be seen leaping upwards in order to get beyond the falls, to continue it migration to spawn.  Its eyes, body and mouth are visible in the cascades, while its tail is formed from the rock and driftwood.
