Why order this En Plein Air 2017 Canada $20 1 oz. Colorized Proof Silver Springtime Gifts?

This 2017 1 oz. Colorized Proof Silver En Plein Air: Springtime Gifts is the first in a three coin series by the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) that features images that are 'en plein air' (in open air), a style of painting in which a painter captures the conditions at the time he creates the painting. Struck from .9999 fine silver, this coin's mintage was limited to just 5,500 pieces. One of the RCM's thinnest coins, it has a large diameter of 60mm!

Stunning tulips design by Elizabeth Sim

Like other Canadian coins, this one features an image of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. Designed by Susanna Blunt, the image shows the queen in right-side profile with her shoulders open to the holder. Rim inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II, D.G. REGINA," "CANADA 2017" and "20 DOLLARS."

Elizabeth Sim's reverse image features an en plein air image of blooming Canada 150 tulips, which fill this face. The holder becomes the artist, with their eye drawn to the colorful canvas that focuses on just a few of the flowers. The en plein air experience is enhanced through texturized color, a subtle raising of the canvas that provides dimension and depth. The surface textures add to the authenticity of the viewing experience, as the canvas effect replicates a finished painting's surface textures.
