Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This 2017 $20 fine silver coin is the first of a three coin series that pays tribute to the oceans that border our land. The rich diversity of life in the Pacific, Arctic and Atlantic Oceans are an important part of Canada’s maritime heritage. 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.

Designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco, the reverse image presents a unique glimpse of Atlantic Canada’s coastal waters. Beneath the engraved word “CANADA” stands a lighthouse on the rocky shoreline, where the sentinel was often the first sign of land to many travelling by sea. The crashing wave infuses the reverse with a sense of sweeping motion while transitioning to the underwater realm, where engraved details recreate an ocean floor littered with shells and dotted with coral. The use of selective gold plating draws the eye to the two starfish, while providing an enhanced view of their defining characteristics. Against the silver background, the gold plating truly shines as it highlights the rough and spiny appearance of the five-armed ocean-dwellers, and adds a life-like sense of texture and dimension to this idyllic aquatic setting.
