2This 2017 $20 fine silver coin is the second of three in the new “Canada’s Coasts” series and features a stunning sunset on Canada’s rugged Atlantic coast together with a unique maple leaf portrayal. Adding to its collectability, the mintage is limited to just 7,500. As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.
The reverse image by Curtis Atwater features a humpback’s tail rising from the water near a rocky island hosting one of the Atlantic's famous lighthouses. Dominating the center of the image, the whale’s tail and the graceful lighthouse point the eye upward to a warm red and orange maple leaf sunset, which is reflected in the waters below. Detailed engraving and selective colouring make the sunset glow and the Atlantic waters shimmer.
