Description

This hot air balloon shaped 2017 $20 one ounce fine silver coin celebrates the hot air balloon festivals that fill Canada’s skies with breathtaking colour and shapes each year. Big, billowing clouds of vibrant orange, green, purple and blue fill the sky, while a red-and-white balloon flies in tribute to Canada’s rich ballooning tradition. From Newfoundland and Labrador to British Columbia and the Far North, passengers can experience the ride of their lives as they enjoy Canada’s breathtaking landscapes in this exhilarating way. Adding to its collectability, the mintage is extremely limited to just 5,000. As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

Canadian artist Calder Moore has created a captivating and immersive design filled with rich, vibrant colour. The compelling tilt-shift perspective uses strategic sizing and placement of the balloons—a larger balloon extending beyond the field of the coin, and progressively smaller balloons disappearing in the distance—to create an exceptional depth of field that draws the viewer in, as if they are in a basket, gazing out at dozens of other balloonists out for a ride down a mountain valley. Majestic mountains in the distance enhance the sense of depth, while a red-and-white maple leaf balloon salutes Canada’s rich ballooning tradition.
