Description

This seven-coin $20 fine silver set is presented in a maple wood case. The case has been lacquered in black allowing for a premium finish. Inside the case, all seven artists' names are printed on the flock, below each respective coin; the inside lid features all of the individual certificates. 

F. H. Varley - Stormy Weather, Georgian Bay
A blustery North Ontarian landscape has been skillfully rendered in dimensional detail, including the writhing texture of the barren tree, the smooth stones of the rocky cliff, the frothing white caps of the massive lake below, and the powerful, churning sky above and beyond the lake. 

Arthur Lismer - Nova Scotia Fishing Village
Royal Canadian Mint engravers have reproduced Lismer's memorable image of the working life in a fishing village with lobster traps, weights, buoys, barrels, drying racks, fisherman, shacks and all the tools of maritime life.

Franklin Carmichael - Houses, Cobalt
The image depicts Carmichael's painting, Houses, Cobalt. Royal Canadian Mint engravers reproduced Carmichael's memorable image of houses that rise up the rolling hillside covered in thick snow. 

Lawren S. Harris - Toronto Street, Winter Morning
The image depicts Harris's painting, Toronto Street, Winter Morning. Royal Canadian Mint engravers have reproduced his memorable image of bundled figures walking in the snowy streets by a horse-drawn delivery van.

Franz Johnston - The Guardian of the Gorge
This coin features an adaptation of Johnston's painting, The Guardian of the Gorge. In this detail of the painting, we see massive outcroppings of granite acting as guard and gateway to a vast river canyon. The figurative becomes literal as one notices the figure of a crouching man emerge from the rock, and at the crest of the cliff (not seen here) the face of the elderly guardian watches over the vast chasm. 

J. E. H. MacDonald - Sumacs
The image is a recreation of J. E. H. MacDonald's famous work, Sumacs (1915). Sumacs was one of several decorative panels that the Group of Seven was commissioned to paint in the Georgian Bay cottage of Toronto ophthalmologist and art patron Dr. James MacCallum. The coin illustrates the robust texture of MacDonald's original work, which used intense pigmentation to evoke the ruddy autumnal haze of sumacs in the fall.

A. Y. Jackson - Saint-Tite-des-Caps
This coin is an engraved recreation of A. Y. Jackson's famous work, Saint-Tite-des-Caps (1930). The moment in the wintry, snow-covered rolling landscape of the region is evident. Sleepy, snow-capped houses are the central image of the coin's reverse. A single tree rises in the left portion of the foreground, while the houses are backed by a distant horizon of tall, rolling hills and evergreens. In the sky above are clouds and dramatic sun rays.
