This 2019 $3 fine silver coin features music time in Canada, showcasing one of the many music festivals that take place in our cities and towns. You can almost hear the crowd as the musicians take the stage in this design, which celebrates our music-filled summer nights. Mintage of this coin is limited to only 4,000. GST/HST exempt.
The reverse design by Steve Hepburn celebrates the folk festivals that fill the air with music on warm summer nights. A viewpoint from the back of the stage places the focus on the performers: the banjo player and percussionist in the foreground, and the guitar-playing singer who is facing the crowd. The image is framed by stylized icons that represent popular outdoor activities and sights in Canada: (clockwise from top) Niagara Falls; a Christmas tree; a rodeo; wine tasting; dogsledding; folk music; cherry blossoms; maple syrup tasting; whale watching; tulips; coastal drives; and the aurora borealis. The obverse features the year “2019” and face value “3 DOLLARS”, and the framed effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
