Why purchase this perfectly graded 2017 Canadian En Plein Air Colorized Silver Proof?
The Royal Canadian Mint celebrates the timeless art of painting outdoors with the En Plein Air series, featuring new minting techniques that replicate the canvas and brushstroke textures of real paintings. This final release of the series depicts a tranquil dockside scene on a colorized proof struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver. Mintage of the 60mm diameter proof is limited to 5,500 coins.
Unique Textured Color with a Canvas Effect
A full color painting of a docked kayak dominates the center of the reverse, surrounded by the outdoor setting that inspired the artist's creativity. Design of the image is credited to Canadian artist Elizabeth Sim, whose initials appear on the painted canvas.
The likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the artistry of sculptor Susanna Blunt, adorns the obverse, inscribed "ELIZABETH II," "CANADA," "2017," "D. G. REGINA" and "20 DOLLARS."
