Why order this $20 Canada 2017 Colorized Proof Silver En Plein Air - Maritime Memories?

This Colorized Proof 2017 $20 Canada Silver En Plein Air - Maritime Memories is a fantastic choice for collectors who have a passion for the arts. It is the second of three coins in the Royal Canadian Mint's (RCM) En Plein Air Series, which features designs in this unique art form. It was struck from .9999 fine silver and is part of a mintage of 5,500 pieces.

Stunning Maritime Memories design by Elizabeth Sim

The obverse design is the same one as is featured on nearly all other coins struck at the Royal Canadian Mint. It is that of Queen Elizabeth II as rendered by Susanna Blunt. The Queen lacks a crown or tiara but is wearing earrings and a necklace. Her name and title, "ELIZABETH II D.G. REGINA," are split on the left and right, with "CANADA 2017" and "20 DOLLARS" included on the top and bottom, respectively.

The reverse of the coin features an en plein air painting set within the scene. The artistic image is in stark contrast to the photo-like imagery of the setting, yet the colors stand out and offer their own unique beauty within the serenity of the setting. The canvas is mounted on an easel, making the holder feel as though they are in the seat of the artist. The image was created by Elizabeth Sim, whose initials are in the lower right of the painting.
