Product Details
Sold out at the mint! The latest innovation from the RCM's R&D lab raises the bar when it comes to dimensional design and allows the engraved focal point to reach new heights—literally.

Introducing Lifted Engraving, a numismatic first that makes its world debut on this limited-edition prototype. The groundbreaking technology is a 3D approach to 2D coin art. It allows us to highlight a key design element by raising it above the engraved surface of the coin. To demonstrate its full potential, the never-before-seen technique has been applied to this 2020 pure Silver version of the 1997 Flying Loon dollar. The loon you see lifting up from the coin’s surface is not an embellishment—it’s part of the coin. And so is the integrated hinge, which provides just the right amount of lift for the loon, and new technology, to take flight on this prototype.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 59.5 grams of .9999 fine Silver.
  • Limited mintage of only 425 coins.
  • Packaged in a wooden box with a special R&D Lab certificate to explain the technology.
  • Obverse: Features the repeating R&D Lab logo as a tiled background behind the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
  • Reverse: A reproduction of the 1997 Flying Loon $1.00 coin design by Canadian artist Jean-Luc Grondin. Enhanced with Lifted Engraving, the loon has been smoothly cut away from its engraved lake setting and elevated above the coin’s surface with the help of an integrated hinge.
  • Guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint.
