In your coin, Royal Canadian Mint engravers reproduced Carmichael’s memorable image of houses that rise up the rolling hillside covered in thick snow. In this reproduction of Carmichael’s painting Houses, Cobalt (c. 1931-1932), you see an example of Carmichael’s style for this era. Linocut printmaking—cutting a relief design into a linoleum surface that is then inked and pressed onto the paper—was popular in the early years of the 20th century, first for wallpaper printing, then for prints. Coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint branded maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a black sleeve.
