Product Details
Jean Paul Riopelle (1923-2002) drew wide acclaim for the abstract paintings that placed him at the cutting edge of several mid-20th century modern art movements.

Riopelle’s creative genius wasn’t limited to a single medium: in the 1960s, the Montréal-born artist dedicated himself to sculpture, creating works of art that underscored his connection to nature, which served as both a grounding force and muse. One of those bronze-cast sculptures, Riopelle’s Petit hibou, is rendered in Extraordinarily High Relief (EHR) on this coin crafted in gold sourced exclusively from Quebec mines. On the coin’s reverse, Riopelle’s sculpted work reaches an incredible relief height of over 6 mm, which further accentuates all the dimpled details that are attributed to the artist’s hand and creative vision.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 2 oz of .9999 fine gold.
  • Accompanied by a special insert and a certificate of authenticity, your encapsulated coin is presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded wood case with a black beauty box.
  • Mintage of 250 coins.
  • Obverse: The obverse features a field pattern representing movement in nature behind the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
  • Reverse: Your coin’s reverse design is a representation of Petit hibou, a clay sculpture created circa 1970 by Jean Paul Riopelle. Beneath the sculpted form of an owl, which is rendered in Extraordinarily High Relief (EHR), the “Riopelle100” centenary mark (created by the Riopelle Foundation) commemorates the 100th anniversary of the artist’s birth (1923-2023).
  • Guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint.
