Beautiful art, a concave shape creating the impression of looking out from inside a bearsÕ cave, glow-in-the-dark special effects, five ounces of fine silver and a low mintage of just 1,500. This is the combination that makes this Moonlit Tranquility coin one of the top coin offerings from the Royal Canadian Mint in 2018 and an exceptional and engaging work of art. GST/HST exempt.

Like a luminous lullaby, moonlight spills across the reverse of this fine silver coin, where it lights up the landscape and lessens the darkness of the night sky. There is a great sense of calmness, tranquility, and above all else, wonder in the reverse image by Maurade Boynton, which shows the beauty of a moonlit night in the Canadian wilderness.

The coinÕs concave shape presents a tunnel-like view of the coloured night sky from deep inside a cave; here, engraved details in a proof finish mimic the look of diffused light on the rock walls, which provide safety and comfort to a mother black bear (Ursus americanus) and her curious cubs. Glow-in-the-dark technology stands in for moonlight, which wraps around the white spruce tree and lights up the profile of each bear as together, they view the starsÑincluding a shooting star that only reveals itself when the coin is viewed in the dark.

The reverse includes the engraved word ÒCANADAÓ, the face value Ò50 DOLLARSÓ and the year, Ò2018Ó. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
