Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 

With every brushstroke, Emily Carr (1871-1945) painted a legacy that is today ingrained in our collective cultural identity. This covetable collector piece artfully mixes colour, engraving and a special canvas effect to transform the reverse and obverse into an everlasting canvas, featuring a famous painting by the illustrious Canadian artist.


The reverse is based on Big Raven (1931) by Canadian artist Emily Carr. Like the original oil painting, this rendering features vivid colours and sweeping lines that are characteristic of the artist’s expressive style. Waves of overgrown vegetation surround the carved raven, while behind it, geometric-shaped columns of light descend from the sky. The coin’s silver surface stands in for the beams of light that shine down from the dark clouds above, with expertly engraved lines that replicate individual brushstrokes. A canvas effect adds an extra layer of detail that creates the appearance of art painted directly on the coin-turned-canvas. The image is bordered by the engraved words “BIG RAVEN • 1931 • GRAND CORBEAU” and “EMILY CARR”. The obverse replicates the engraved sky and simulated brushstrokes from the reverse, and features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

The reverse is as colourful and expressive as the original art, but with a few technological twists—including a canvas effect that mimics the look (and feel) of a painted art canvas.
