Hold a thunderstorm in the palm of your hand! The awesome power and light of a summer storm blows across this stunning coin’s reverse surface, bringing the image to life. The Royal Canadian Mint recreates the intensity of a storm on this uniquely coloured 99.99% pure silver coin.
Features an incredible technologically-enhanced effect! The application of unique colour technology allows for the breathtaking recreation of nature’s most electrifying light show, all in a one-of-a-kind collectible. Magnificent in any light but unforgettable under black light: While the artistry of the reverse image is compelling in any light, the full effect of the overall design is best appreciated when viewed under the black light flashlight that is included with the coin.
The reverse image by Canadian artists Tony Bianco and Arnold Nogy presents a stormy natural landscape. A lone eastern white pine, shaped by steady winds, rises from a small rocky island in Ontario’s Georgian Bay. In the distance, stylized forests cower under a stormy sky that seems to glow with energy as Mother Nature unleashes her power. Viewing the reverse under a black light (included) activates the coin’s specialized technology, allowing the lightning bolts to radiate across the sky with a stunning life-like intensity and exceptional luminosity.
