Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This stunning set of three fine silver coins is offered by the Royal Canadian Mint as a celebration of the 125th anniversary of Franklin Carmichael’s birth; as the youngest member of Canada’s famed Group of Seven, Franklin Carmichael (1890-1945) helped to define a new “Canadian” style of landscape art in the 1920s and ‘30s – one that conveyed a deep love for the natural beauty of the rugged Canadian landscape. This set honours this highly-respected artist with beautiful coins that faithfully reproduced three of Carmichael’s famed paintings.

The reverse of each coin features an engraved detail from one of three works by Carmichael. A lone pine tree is the focal point of this recreation of Carmichael’s The Upper Ottawa, near Mattawa (c. 1924) oil painting, while the Ottawa River fills much of the background behind it. Another breathtaking vista can be viewed in the engraved reproduction of the watercolour Cranberry Lake (c. 1934) Gift of Mary Mastin, Toronto 1996; rolling hills that tower over the diminutive size of the village by the lake all convey the grandeur and openness of the landscape. Carmichael’s Landscape (c. 1925) – was created with linocut; a printmaking technique by which an image is carved in relief onto a sheet of linoleum that is inked then pressed onto paper. In the engraved detail from this print, the dark trees in the foreground contrast with the lighter ones behind them, creating layers and depth to this depiction of a mountainous landscape.

This three-coin set is struck in .9999 pure silver, with a metal weight of 23.17 grams (about three-quarters of an ounce) each, with a diameter of over 36mm. These beautifully-engraved coins would make a surprising and beautiful gift for any collector or lover of the work of the Group of Seven, or be a highlight addition to any collection of Canadian-themed fine silver. A limited mintage of only 7,000 sets makes this a highly-collectible acquisition for your collection. As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST / GST exempt.
