Description

Through distinctive brush strokes and bold colours, the oil paintings of Canadian artist Tom Thomson (1877-1917) transformed how Canada’s northern landscape was perceived at home and abroad. The Royal Canadian Mint celebrates one of Canada’s most influential artists of the early twentieth century by recreating details from this famous painting Pine Island, Georgian Bay (1914-1916). Mintage for this coin is limited to 300 coins. HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

This coin offers an engraved recreation of Tom Thomson’s landscape paintings: a one-ounce 99.99% pure gold coin featuring Pine Island, Georgian Bay (1914-1916). These smaller-scale renditions boast an astonishing amount of detail. Precision engraving masterfully recreates every brushstroke from the original canvases, with beautiful detailing and raised elements that recapture the depth and subtleties of Thomson’s work: the gold coin beautifully recreates the glow of the sky behind windswept trees.

A wonderful and valuable addition to any nature-, Canadian art- or history-themed collection.
