This 2017 $20 fine silver coin pays tribute to the enduring, engaging canoe—an ingenious creation from the past that is now a modern icon of Canada.  The coin features a miniature wood canoe that is laser etched for remarkable realism and 3D effect.  Adding to its collectability, the mintage is extremely limited to just 4,500.  As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

A miniature wood canoe laser-etched for remarkable realism and 3D effect dominates this design by Canadian artist Margaret Best.  In the distance, a rocky shoreline with dense vegetation has been meticulously enhanced with selective colour while a twig of coloured maple leaves highlights the design’s Canadian roots. In the foreground, two canoe paddles rest against the rocks of a small sandy niche that has provided the perfect spot to come ashore.


Did You Know?

Canoeing reconnects people with nature in ways unmatched by any other watercraft. As you paddle in silence, you are experiencing Canada the same way as the first European explorers, and countless Aboriginal people who travelled North America’s vast waterways for thousands of years before.
