At the first hint of the cooler autumn air, Canadians delight in knowing they have a front-row seat to nature’s most famous seasonal transformation. This 2017 half ounce $10 fine silver coin brings the viewer lakeside to experience a peaceful autumn day—it’s Canada at its colourful best. As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Tony Bianco features an idyllic, lakeside view of Canada’s autumn landscape. Vibrant colour presents the season’s iconic mix of red, orange, yellow, green and brown foliage. The mosaic of colourful leaves is reflects on the lightly rippled surface of the water, along with the purple hue of the hills that rise up in the distance. Near the water’s edge, two Muskoka chairs invite us to linger longer in this tranquil setting. As we look out, we can imagine the trumpeting call of Canadian geese overhead as they gather to start their journey south for the winter. Autumn’s Palette is a quintessentially Canadian experience, which you can enjoy time and time again with this beautiful coin.
