Why add this 2017 Under the Sea: Sea Turtle Silver GEM Proof to your collection?
A sea turtle joins the previous issues of a seahorse and a sea star to conclude the incredibly beautiful Under the Sea series produced by the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM). Each design of the series features a delightful undersea creature individually hand crafted from murrini glass elements by Canadian glass artist Loïc Beaumont-Tremblay. Struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver, the proof measures 38 mm in diameter. The one-of-a-kind glass embellishment assures that each coin of the 7,500 mintage will be unique.
Sensational colorization with unique glass adornment
The reverse, designed by Canadian artist Maurice Gervais, depicts a colorized shallow underwater habitat of sea grass, coral, and a large boulder, which frames the murrini glass sea turtle encased in borosilicate glass. Inscriptions include "20 DOLLARS 2017" above, "CANADA" below.
Canadian artist Susanna Blunt sculpted the obverse portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Inscribed "ELIZABETH II" and "D. G. REGINA."
