Description

The Royal Canadian Mint is proud to present its second 5-kg 99.99% fine silver coin, featuring a portion of Emily Carr's Tsatsisnukomi, B.C., 1912, one of Canada's most accomplished and renowned artists.

A giant 7 inches in diameter, this pure silver coin featuring a detail from Emily Carr's masterful totem-themed 1912 painting applies advanced engraving and finishing techniques to bring Carr's work to life in astounding texture and detail. Mintage is limited to 100 coins. HST/GST exempt.

The Design:
On the reverse, the central image of a mystical bird figure has been engraved at increased depth so that it seems to rise from the coin. Behind this central image, Royal Canadian Mint engravers have employed exceptional frosting to capture the beautiful shading and delicate detail from Carr's vivid original. The central image is framed by an outer band designed to mimic the cross-sectional grain of a cedar log, a material prominently used in creating totem poles. This beautiful frosted background also graces the coin's obverse, which hosts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
