Description

This photoluminescent coin captures the spectacular nature of one of CanadaÕs most iconic wonders, and a source of pride for many Canadians! Included with the coin is a black-light flashlight that activates the glow-in-the-dark features!

A formidable mix of raw power and beauty, Niagara Falls provides breathtaking views that are the backdrop to countless memories! Take in the wondrous nature of the Horseshoe Falls on this photoluminescent coin, where the great Canadian landmark is a spectacular sight to behold, day and night.

One can almost hear the thunderous roar of rushing water in this reverse design by Tony Bianco. The elevated view provides a sweeping panorama of the Horseshoe Falls in its near entirety. ThereÕs a sense of movement above the falls, where the powerful current of the upper Niagara River and the Cascade Rapids sends water racing over the crescent-shaped cataract. Bordered by Goat Island on the left and the Ontario shore on the right, the world-famous waterfall naturally commands attention as a tremendous volume of water tumbles over the crestline and into the river below, releasing cooling plumes of mist into the air. A full colour application only adds to the picture-perfect setting, where the water is nearly as blue as the sky above. But there is a hidden element to this design: a selective application of photoluminescent (glow-in-the-dark) and black light technologies allows for a second viewing of the scene, this time at night. A tradition since 1925, the nightly illumination of the falls adds an array of candy-like colours to the water while CanadaÕs longest running fireworks series lights up the night sky, embodying the pride that many Canadians have for one of our most famous natural wonders.

Like a lasting photograph, the reverse features a full colour application that re-creates a timeless view of the often-photographed Horseshoe Falls in Niagara Falls, Ont. The setting is just as magnificent at night, when the water is illuminated and fireworks add a burst of colour to the night sky Ñ as revealed when the coin is viewed in the dark.
