DESIGN:
This $10 proof coin is 99.99% pure silver, with a diameter of 34 millimetres and a metal weight of 15.87 grams. Designed by Coast Salish artist Darlene Gait, the reverse image features original artwork that pays tribute to the salmon – a fish that has long been revered by the First Nations people of Canada’s West Coast. Four salmon fish are positioned in a circular pattern and converge near the centre of the image, with clusters of roe between them – an allusion to the salmon’s cycle of life. Struck into the image field, a full hologram creates a shimmering background that mimics the reflective qualities of a river in the sunlight; this effect is further enhanced by the application of paint to the fish and roe. The image is framed with a polished band upon which is engraved the words “CANADA,” the face value of “10 DOLLARS” and the year “2014.”
