2016 Canada 1 oz Silver $20 The Universe: Glow-in-the-Dark Glass

Canadian amateur astronomers using the Burke-Gaffney Observatory made a remarkable discovery in 1995 when they identified a supernova in a galaxy about 70 million light years away, the first of such discovery made from within Canada. An unforgettable combination of detailed engraving and vibrant color, with a handcrafted borosilicate glass insert combined with glow-in-the-dark glass, makes each coin truly unique!

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
  • Comes packaged in a maroon clamshell beauty box from the mint along with a certificate of authenticity.
  • Obverse: Right-facing profile of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the year and face value.

Against the softly colored glow of a clear, star-filled night sky, a unique glass insert captures the otherworldly beauty of a supernova.
  • Added luminescence within the glass captures the lights and colors associated with a supernova, a stunning effect that also adds a shine to the reverse’s star-filled sky.

With its innovative features, its beautifully rendered artistic design and a limited mintage of only 8,500 coins worldwide, this coin is sure to be sought after.
