The fourth issue in an exciting five-coin series showcasing all-Canadian adventures! There’s an endless variety of adventures to be found across Canada. Every season and every geographical region has something new and exciting to offer—like climbing icy cliffs, frozen waterfalls, mountainsides and glacial ice fields!
Canadian artist Ken Ryan has created a powerful design of the grit and physical strength required to tackle one of the most extreme forms of ice climbing. A climber hangs from an ice-covered mountainside, his back arched and every muscle flexed as he swings his axe over his head and into the ice before kicking out his legs to create the next foothold with his crampons.
An original and upscale keepsake for anyone who likes to recreate in the mountains—whether or not you have experienced the excitement and personal satisfaction of successfully scaling frozen terrain.
