Five Low-Mintage, Highly Detailed Pure Silver Proof Works of Art!

The third release in the 2014 Oh! Canada Program design by Canadian artist Kendra Dixon (also spelled Dixson) presents a downhill skier hurtling down a steep mountainside packed with perfect powder. In the lower left foreground, we see the well-appointed skier, poles extended in both directions, carefully carving a billowing path in the untouched snow. In the background, the snow-covered tops of coniferous trees emphasize the extreme height and winter beauty of the experience of skiing in the Canadian Rockies. Royal Canadian Mint engravers have carefully used a variety of finishes and engraving techniques to capture the tonal depth of the original watercolor artwork.

The distinct design hallmark of the O Canada Program has the central image set between two semi-circular banners (each laser polished to a gleaming, mirror-like finish) with the top band proudly proclaiming the legend “Canada”, and the denomination in the lower band.
