Behold the Beauty of the Aurora Borealis with This Gorgeous Silver Proof!
There's no denying the peaceful silence of a cold, crisp winter evening in the Canadian wilderness -- a serenity that is only matched by the light of the stars and moon above. However, when the conditions are right, the sky slowly emanates beautiful waves of green, yellow, pink and violet. Caused by waves of plasma from the sun, this solar wind combines with the elements in the Earth's atmosphere to produce a show in the Northern Hemisphere known as the Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights. Of course, there are fewer seats better for this cosmic production than the one on the back blades of a dogsled, zipping through the open fields, led by multiple trusty canine companions!
This experience is a perfectly Canadian, and the ideal subject for this stunning 2017 half-ounce silver proof from the Royal Canadian Mint! With this 2017 Dog Sledding Under the Northern Lights Silver Proof, artist Claudio D'Angelo brilliantly captures the sights and emotions of an evening run under the dazzling Northern Lights, guided by four excited huskies. Select colorization brings the scene to gorgeously vivid life, all minted on a half-ounce of 99.99% pure silver.
Look on the other side of this legal-tender 10 dollar Canadian Proof and you'll find Susanna Blunt's portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Your proof will arrive to you encased in a protective acrylic capsule inside a maroon clamshell within a black beauty box -- all with Royal Canadian Mint branding and a numbered certificate of authenticity.
This imaginative and evocative proof is a perfect addition to any collection and a great gift for the astronomer or winter enthusiast in your life! Don't take too long to decide, though -- only 15,000 of these proofs will be minted. Place this 2017 Dog Sledding Under the Northern Lights Silver Proof in your cart now before it vanishes with the breaking dawn!
