Description

Imagine coming upon a setting so inspiring, it leaves you yearning to preserve the splendour of that particular
moment in time, when nature serves as both muse and studio—this is the essence of painting en plein air. And for
many Canadians, our love for the outdoors in unrivalled: it’s where some of our fondest memories are made, and
where we find the serenity that restores, renews and inspires us. This final coin in the En plein air series transforms
the viewer into the “artist” once more, with an immersive design that evokes memories of treasured summer
moments.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

  • THIRD AND FINAL COIN IN AN EXTRAORDINARY SERIES: YOU become the artist in this series—take a moment to re-visit your summer memories, or simply appreciate the artistic beauty of the canvas interpretation on the reverse!
  • TWO COLOUR TECHNOLOGIES IN ONE SEAMLESS DESIGN: To create this true-to-life viewing experience, the reverse utilizes TEXTURIZED COLOUR to raise some of the elements (the easel-mounted canvas) and set it apart from its surroundings, while CANVAS EFFECT adds texture to the painting!
  • OUR THINNEST COINS! Crafted from 1 oz. of 99.99% pure silver, these extra-thin coins have an extra-large diameter (60 mm)—perfect for an immersive design that covers the entire reverse, from edge to edge!

DESIGN:

The reverse design by Canadian artist Elizabeth Sim is filled with all the warmth of a summer day, as it
speaks of a personal connection with nature. The cottage setting is a familiar one to many Canadians;
stretching across the entire reverse, the borderless background image creates the feeling of standing at the
water’s edge, looking out at a dock and the kayak that awaits a late afternoon excursion. While Texturized
Colour technology sets it apart from its surroundings, the easel-mounted canvas is positioned in a way that
suggests the viewer is in fact the artist who has captured this idyllic setting on canvas. The use of Canvas
Effect technology adds yet another touch of realism by re-creating the characteristic surface texture of a
finished painting, such as the brushstrokes and the fibres of the canvas.
