Real Diamond Glitter Makes This Arctic Landscape Sparkle With Light!
When it comes to being on the cutting (or is that minting?) edge of coin technology, the Royal Canadian Mint is amongst the very head of the pack. And while our friends in Canada have blinded us with science before, this gorgeous one-ounce silver proof is dazzling our eyes with both its shimmering looks and astounding technology.
Second in the Glistening North series, this 2017 Glistening Arctic Tern Proof is minted in one ounce of 99.99% pure silver with a lush design from Canadian artist Derek C. Wicks. Here, this majestic bird is rendered in crisp detail, along with two other members of its colony in the background. Selective coloring provides the serene blue of a cold arctic sea dotted with ice. But look even closer and you'll see the feature that made our jaws drop.
Embedded in the detail of the icebergs in the background are actual fine diamond particles! Selectively applied and securely sealed, this diamond glitter provides an ethereal effect that plays beautifully with surrounding light. Together, along with Susanna Blunt's portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse, and you have a legal-tender 20 dollar Canadian coin that makes the arctic landscape come alive!
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. However, this beauty is in short supply -- only 7,500 of these proofs will be minted. Don't miss this chance to bring this terrific tern to your collection. Capture it in your cart now!
