Description

This new two ounce fine silver $30 coin is one of the major features from the Royal Canadian Mint designed to celebrate Canada 150. With an extremely popular theme, exceptional patriotic art, new layered photoluminescent technology and a low mintage of just 5000 coins, it is also likely to sell out quickly.

This double image coin will transport you to the Canada Day celebrations in the national capital. In regular light, it is a bright afternoon on Parliament Hill. Suddenly the Snowbirds Aeronautic Demonstration Team appears in the sky and performs a fly-past above the iconic Peace Tower with a thrilling red and white display of precise formation and national pride. Stay on the lawn of the Parliament Buildings until after dark for the climax of the celebrations. When viewed with the included black light, an unforgettable pyrotechnic display of fireworks appears above Parliament Hill. Black light and photoluminescent technology combine to re-create the elaborate firework finale above Parliament Hill, where the dazzling array of colours and patterns faintly illuminates the buildings and the crowd below.

ThereÕs a timeless quality to Jesse KoreckÕs reverse design, which provides a lasting snapshot of Canada Day festivities on Parliament Hill. The view of the Centre Block building helps create a more immersive viewing experienceÑone gets the sense of being there in person, among the hundreds of thousands of people who have gathered on the lawn to take part in this joyous occasion. The outpouring of national pride is evident in the revellersÕ red-and-white clothing and the prominent placement of Canadian flags. However, the crowdÕs attention is focused on the sky overhead, where the legendary Snowbirds Demonstration Team performs a thrilling fly-past above the iconic Peace Tower. The use of a full colour application adds a rich vibrancy to the daytime scene; but the strategic integration and layering of photoluminescent technologies allow for a surprising transition to night.

The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
