Glow-in-the-dark scene of an underwater reef
A view into the ocean water off the Western Coast of Canada appears on the reverse, created by Canadian illustrator Jesse Koreck. A vast array of marine creatures are depicted with amazing, vibrant colorization. Shine the UV flashlight at this side in the dark, and experience a beautiful illuminated image of life in an underwater reef.

Graded Proof 69 by the NGC
The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) received this 2016 Canada $30 2 oz. Illuminated Underwater Reef Colorized Silver Proof for grading within the first thirty days of its issue. This is indicated by the "Early Releases" designation on its label. Experts at the corporation examined this stunning coin for any flaws under 5x magnification, and found only a few, non-detracting marks. This allowed the coin to be certified Proof 69 Ultra Cameo, the second highest grade. It also received the designation "Ultra Cameo," which refers to a well-applied Proof finish.
