Description

This 2015 $20 pure silver coin is part of a series from the Royal Canadian Mint that celebrates nature’s spectacular display of colours, and features a classic Canadian locomotive travelling through a beautiful autumn scene.  The coin weighs just over one ounce of pure silver, and has a limited mintage of just 7,500 pieces.  As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.     


The Design:

Canadian artist Jacky MacDonald has created a stunning image of an autumn that features a timeless image of autumn in Canada, one that stirs a feeling of wistful nostalgia in its depiction of a beloved, longstanding tradition.  A classic steam locomotive is seen chugging along the winding, engraved track as a silver cloud of smoke rises up from its chimney. One could almost hear the train whistle echo amidst the tranquility of this forested area, which is ablaze with autumn colours that have been recreated with the use of red, orange and yellow hues of paint. Nature’s breathtaking display surely delights the passengers on-board this leisurely fall foliage train ride, as they roll past the maples and birch trees that dominate this Canadian landscape. 

A combination of paint, silver, and refined engraving techniques to create a lush, painterly effect. The coin is double struck with a near flawless proof finish, and includes full colour imagery.
