Frozen in ice: a colourful window in time! Get to know one of the amazing Ice Age species that once roamed North America. This unique coin captures a herd of Mammuthus primigenius, the iconic woolly mammoth, in detailed engraving and selective colour under a frosted chunk of "ice".

This $20 coin is one ounce of 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 38 millimetres and featuring a stunning proof finish, exceptional engraving, and selective colour. The reverse design by Canadian artist Glen Loates portrays a snowy Ice Age landscape with a herd of mammoth traversing a frozen plain. The image centres on a single mammoth who faces the viewer, its massive tusks rising high into the sky. The image is overlain with a frosted "ice" like dome. The portion of the portrait under the ice is coloured, while the remainder of the image is struck-only. The reverse includes the text "CANADA" and the date "2018". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt, as well as the coin value of "20 DOLLARS".

A unique addition to any Canadian-themed, history-focused, or nature-inspired collection.
