As dynamic as the bald eagle itself, this 2019 $20 fine silver coin uses multiple colour technologies to transform a daytime sighting of this majestic predator set against a bright blue sky into a picture perfect sunset image set against a sky of fiery orange and red. A Royal Canadian Mint branded black light is included to re-create the instant transformation of your coin as often as you wish. The coin weighs one ounce of pure silver and has and extremely low mintage limited to just 4,000. HST/GST exempt.

The careful layering of engraved elements with colour technologies and blacklight effect adds unprecedented complexity to the scene. Translucent enamel mimics the look of the blue sky reflecting on the water. Complex engraving is a constant and brings the landscape to life, with different frostings that convey distance and mimic shade cast by passing clouds. The water element brings all the technologies together, with shadows and a glowing sunset painted onto the transparent blue enamel, which colours the engraved underwater view.

Set over Canada’s Pacific coastal waters, the reverse image by Julius Csotonyi evokes a sense of awe and reverence for both the bald eagle and its coastal habitat. The design depicts a sunny, summer day along the rocky shoreline, where the engraved evergreen trees reach for the blue-coloured sky overhead. Talons at the ready, a bald eagle swoops low over the shallow water, where translucent blue enamel stands in for the sky’s reflection without obscuring the underwater view. When viewed under a blacklight, the same scene transitions to dusk, as a fiery sunset lights up the sky and casts longer shadows on the water.

The reverse includes the word “CANADA”, the year “2019” and the face value, “20 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
