The third and final coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s stunning 99.99% pure silver coin series by Canadian artist Nathalie Bertin, A Story of the Northern Lights, features a soaring raven set against a dazzling holographic sky lit by the northern lights. This amazing coin is only the third achromatic hologram coin ever to be released by the Royal Canadian Mint. Struck into 99.99% pure silver using nanotechnology, the holographic sky lit by the northern lights makes for a truly unique reverse design.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Nathalie Bertin features a stylized raven in flight above an engraved coniferous mountainside, set against a sky lit by the northern lights. The raven and sky are entirely holographic. The raven flies, wings fully outstretched, in the centre of this image. The lower part of the image, engraved in silver, features rocky mountainous terrain cradling a coniferous forest. The “sky” above the mountains and surrounding the raven is a stunning hologram reminiscent of the ever-changing, swirling rainbow of the aurora borealis.
With a highly limited mintage of only 8,500 coins, dramatic design, and world-class technology, this coin is sure to be sought after by collectors.
