Discover the beauty of life under the surface of the ocean with this 2016 $30 fine silver coin. The deep waters off Canada’s western shores teem with some of the planet’s most abundant and amazing marine biodiversity, including life that creates its own bioluminescence. This large format 54 mm diameter pure silver coin features an amazing underwater image that luminesces when ultraviolet light hits its multiple layers of glow-in-the-dark colouring. HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

The design by Canadian artist Jesse Koreck features marine species that can be found off Canada’s Pacific coast.  The scene is viewed from a deep water reef, looking up toward the magnificent turquoise waters of the surface.  Some of the vibrantly coloured marine life includes jellyfish, rockfish, and highfin dragonfish swimming among and above the corals.  This environment takes on a striking luminescent life under black light.  The bioluminescence of the marine life glows in beautiful blues, greens, pinks, and oranges.
