Capture the grandeur of one of Canada’s most famous and beautiful mountain landscapes on this innovative Extraordinary High Relief $50 fine silver coin. The innovative coin combines full relief topography of the Canadian Rockies with the blue enamelled vibrance of Lake Louise. Mintage is limited to just 3,000 coins. HST / GST exempt.

Turquoise waters, snow-capped mountains, and unparalleled alpine scenery—the beauty of Lake Louise is legendary, and this fine silver coin celebrates all the geographic elements that make it one of Canada’s great treasures. Never before has the Canadian landscape been rendered so realistically as on this coin’s reverse. Its design features an overhead view of the Lake Louise area, and while Extraordinarily High Relief (EHR) technology sends the Canadian Rockies soaring to new heights, beautiful Lake Louise is unmissable thanks to coloured enamel that highlights the crown jewel of Banff National Park. This is the highest relief the RCM has ever achieved on a 50 mm coin.

Based on elevation modelling, the coin features a realistic rendering of the terrain surrounding Lake Louise in Banff National Park (Alberta), in the Canadian Rockies. Glaciers and mountain peaks are frosted to create a silvery snow-capped effect. Lake Louise is struck incuse and filled in with translucent colour enamel that mimics its famous turquoise waters. Inspired by topographic maps, contour lines form a field pattern that frames the reverse and continues on the obverse, which features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know that beginning in late spring, Victoria Glacier’s meltwater carries silt or rock flour (fine-grained particles of rock) into Lake Louise, where these particles stay suspended in the water—in fact, the lake’s vivid colour is caused by sunlight reflecting off these particles.

About Lake Louise
It is a noted tourist resort area in Banff National Park, and is without doubt one of the
most beautiful spots on earth. The region was first settled in 1884. The lake was discovered in 1882 by railroad workers and named in honor of Queen Victoria’s daughter, Princess Louise. It lies at an altitude of 1,731 meters; measures 2.5 kilometers long and 1.2 kilometers wide; depth of about 70 meters. It receives flow from Victoria Glacier.
