2017 Canada 1 Ounce $20 Silver Breaching Whale 3D NGC PF69UC
Canada’s First-Ever 3D Colored Proof
This humpback whale isn’t just leaping from the water on this coin —it’s jumping right off its reverse! Thanks to the latest in 3D printing technology, the “Tails” side of the coin really lives up to its name. The coin is literally exploding with color, texture and detail thanks to a groundbreaking thermoforming process and adding a blue hue to give the humpback an incredibly lifelike appearance. The whale’s tail is literally raised off of the surface of the coin for an astonishing effect. The coin is all the more remarkable because it is Canada’s first-ever 3D colored proof!
Released in 2017 by the prestigious Royal Canadian Mint, your Breaching Whale One-Ounce Silver 3D coin is struck in a full ounce of highly-pure 99.99% silver and bears a legal-tender value of $20. This whale of a coin is further enhanced by its remarkable proof condition. In fact, it has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in perfect Proof-69 Ultra Cameo (PF69UC) condition, a distinction that means your almost-flawless coin will showcase an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections – well above and beyond the quality of the vast majority of coins in the series.
While images of bears, mountain lions and wolves often come to mind when people think about Canada’s wildlife, the humpback whale is also a common sight. They’re often seen breaching the surface of waters off Canada's Pacific and Atlantic coastlines. The best places to see these incredible monarchs of the ocean are off the Nova Scotia shoreline in the summer, and all year long around Victoria Island in British Columbia.
This first of its kind release from the Royal Canadian Mint is from a limited edition of just 7,500 —so order yours today!
