Why purchase this 2017 Canadian Hot Air Balloon Colorized Silver Proof?

The Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) celebrates the Canadian tradition of hot air ballooning with this beautifully designed, shaped proof. The magnificent colorized proof is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver, into an innovative inverted teardrop elliptical shape, which mimics the shape of an inflated balloon, measuring 45 mm long x 33 mm wide, with a limited mintage of only 5,000 coins.

Breathtaking colorized design

The reverse illustrates a dramatic outdoor scene depicting several hot air balloons aloft in a mountain valley. Each balloon features a unique design and vibrant color combination, including a distinctly patriotic red and white maple leaf pattern. The enchanting design created by Canadian artist Calder Moore includes the inscriptions "CANADA," "20 DOLLARS" and "2017."

Canadian artist Susanna Blunt's elegant, right facing portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse, framed by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II" and "D. G. REGINA."

Gorgeous Proof in original Government packaging

This 2017 Canada $20 Hot Air Balloon 1 oz. silver coin is a colorized proof, superbly struck with beautiful, high quality finishes and exceptional eye appeal. The encapsulated teardrop shaped proof is presented in a maroon Royal Canadian Mint branded clamshell case, accompanied by an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity, and packaged in a black outer box as received directly from the Mint.
