Carved out over time by ice and wind, the majestic beauty of Canada’s Arctic landscape is like no other. This fine Silver coin is a celebration of this icon of the True North and of a proud nation whose spirit and history have been shaped by snow and ice.
Third coin in a series that marks the debut of a new technology, diamond glitter. A dusting of fine diamond particles is carefully applied to ensure even layering over select design elements only. This produces an intensely glittering effect that mimics the light-reflecting qualities of snow and ice.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton artfully combines detailed engraving, selective color and a diamond glitter element to capture a serene moment in Northern Canada. Lying on the frozen ground, an arctic wolf takes a moment to rest its weary head next to its forepaws. This northern hunter is engraved in magnificent detail to capture the uniqueness of its features, including the long fur that keeps it insulated against winter’s chill. Behind the wolf, engraving adds texture to the trees that surround it, while the application of soft colors re-create the hues and shadows of fading daylight. While the landscape slumbers beneath a thick blanket of snow, a sealed layer of fine diamond particles re-creates the effect of snow sparkle on this enchanting winter day in the North.
