A concave shape creates the impression of looking out from inside a foxes’ den and a bears’ cave, with glow-in-the-dark special effect. Each coin is struck in five ounces of fine silver and has a low mintage of just 1,500. This is the combination that makes these Stormy Night coins one of the top coin offerings from the Royal Canadian Mint in 2018 and one of the most spectacular coins ever issued anywhere. As pure silver coins struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this set is GST/HST exempt.

Stormy Night Fine Silver Coin: On a dark and stormy night, the wrath of the skies can be both fearsome and captivating to curious onlookers, even animal ones. The reverse design by Derek Wicks captures the mesmerizing nature and raw intensity of a thunderstorm, as seen from a fox’s perspective. For a more immersive viewing experience, the concave shape presents a tunnel-like view of the nighttime storm from inside an underground burrow. Here, the luminous shine of the coin’s silver surface mimics the effect of flash illumination across the entrance of the fox den, which is lined with an engraved tangle of underground roots and rocks. The reactions of four colourful fox cubs mirror our own mixed sense of awe and apprehension: three curious cubs have their backs turned to the viewer as they watch a forked lightning bolt light up the deep hued sky, while a fourth seemingly shrinks away from the scene. The integrated use of glow-in-the-dark technology also allows for an alternate view of this stormy night — this time viewed in the dark, where photoluminescence stands in for the lightning’s electrified glow. The reverse also includes the engraved word “CANADA”, the face value “50 DOLLARS” and the year, “2018”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Moonlit Night Fine Silver Coin: There is a great sense of calmness, tranquility, and above all else, wonder in the reverse image by Maurade Boynton, which shows the beauty of a moonlit night in the Canadian wilderness. The coin’s concave shape presents a tunnel-like view of the coloured night sky from deep inside a cave; here, engraved details in a proof finish mimic the look of diffused light on the rock walls, which provide safety and comfort to a mother black bear (Ursus americanus) and her curious cubs. Glow-in-the-dark technology stands in for moonlight, which wraps around the white spruce tree and lights up the profile of each bear as together, they view the stars—including a shooting star that only reveals itself when the coin is viewed in the dark. The reverse includes the engraved word “CANADA”, the face value “50 DOLLARS” and the year, “2018”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt
