Description

For many Canadians, the common loon is synonymous with summer evenings spent by the lake, where its wavering call embodies the independent spirit of the Canadian wilderness. The coin weighs about three quarters of an ounce of pure silver, and has a limited mintage of just 7,500.  As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.

 

The Design:

On this fine silver 2018 $10 coin, the much-celebrated Canadian icon strikes a pre-flight pose, where a mix of vibrant colour and full relief engraving capture the natural beauty of the loon in its habitat.  

The reverse design by Canadian artist Arnold Nogy presents a portrait of a common loon on a Canadian lake, where selective colour adds a beautiful vibrancy to the aquatic plants in the foreground. Spreading its wings, the loon rises high up on the surface of the water with neck outstretched, which provides an unfettered view of its strikingly patterned plumage. As the loon prepares to take flight, the engraved ripples mimic the lake’s reflective surface on a sunny summer day.
