Capture the fairytale and ballet magic of Sleeping Beauty with this elegant and colourful $20 fine silver coin. With its lavish costumes, scenery and an unforgettable score, The Sleeping Beauty is one of the most beloved ballets of all time — a repertoire staple that demands nothing short of technical brilliance and grace from every principal dancer and soloist who performs it. The mintage of just 4,000 pieces adds to its collectability. GST/HST exempt.
The design features a vertical image of a ballerina performing the role of Princess Aurora backed by a fairy-tale pattern of roses and leaves, which are struck incuse. Selective colour highlights the roses and the ballerina’s ornate costume. The reverse includes the engraved words “CANADA” and the bilingual title of the ballet. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
