Description Technical Specs Extended Information
Frozen in ice: a colourful window in time! Get to know one of the amazing ice Age species that once roamed North America. This unique coin captures Homotherium serum – the fierce scimitar sabre-tooth cat- in detailed engraving and selective colour under a frosted chunk of ‘ice.’

This $20 coin is one ounce of 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 38 millimetres and featuring a stunning proof finish, exceptional engraving, and selective colour. The reverse design by Canadian artist Glen Loates portrays a scimitar sabre-tooth cat in standing atop a rocky outcrop in a vast grassland. The image, reviewed for scientific accuracy by palaeontologists of the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, presents a full-body portrait of the Ice Age predator, with its fierce teeth on display as it opens its mouth. A frosted “ice” like dome overlays the portrait. The portion of the portrait under the ice is coloured, while the remainder of the image is struck-only, giving the impression of a colourful window to our land’s ancient past. The reverse includes the text “CANADA” and the date “2018.” The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt, as well as the coin value of “20 DOLLARS.”

Innovative “trapped-in-ice” design! Artist Glen Loates’ beautiful and intricately detailed portrait is just the beginning. The reverse image is struck in purest proof-finish silver, while the portion featured under the “ice” is beautiful coloured.
