PANORAMIC CAMERA – NIAGARA FALLS

 

The Royal Canadian Mint recreates the awe inspiring quality of Niagara Falls on this $30 Silver coin through the magnificent use of photographic hologram technology.
The colours are so true to life that you will feel that you are actually in the presence of Niagara Fall’s rushing waters.
As photography emerged in the early 19th century to deliver a level of realism the world had never seen, those who sought to recreate Canada's vastness using a lens found even this latest technology could not capture the full scope of the scenery that lay before them.
Finally, success! Canadian John R. Connon's invention of 1887 was one in a flurry of technological innovations that enabled this new generation of artists to capture a vast image on film—from 180 to a full 360 degrees!
Just like the early adventurers that had trekked hundreds miles and scaled colossal heights, photographers triumphed over Canada's seemingly unconquerable landscape, bringing a true sense of this stunning world to those who could not venture there—a vision that propelled photography throughout the 20th century and reigns to this day.
Feel a part of this great discovery with this exquisite new coin.
