Mirroring the daily struggles in life, every small step counts while hiking in CanadaÕs great outdoors. The journey can be fraught with beauty and barriers, triumphs and hardships; but the reward is the deep sense of accomplishment that comes with reaching the top. This fine silver coin is a beautiful celebration of that human spirit, amidst the beauty of CanadaÕs rugged wilderness. Reach for the top with this coin! ItÕs an artistic representation of the challenges we face in our everyday lives and our ability to overcome adversity.

The reverse design by Canadian artist StŽphanie Gauvin features a selectively painted depiction of the view from Idaho Peak in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia. Surrounded by the colourful alpine wildflowers, a hiker stands at the edge of the ridge and contemplates the journey. Selective paint over detailed engraving recreate the breathtaking view overlooking the winding Slocan Lake below, with the Valhalla Mountain Range rising up in the background. The coinÕs silver surface recreates the bright glow of the fading mid-summer sun, which bathes the landscape in a warm and colourful glow that transforms the scenery into an artistÕs dream.

A deeply meaningful way to celebrate a loved oneÕs achievements or to send a positive message of support and encouragement!
