Product Description

Exciting and extremely affordable - a true bargain, struck in the purest silver in the world! A definitive Canadian summertime experience - sun and fun in the great outdoors, with a mintage limit and high face value - what's not to love?!

We have managed to acquire a limited quantity of this unique (and perhaps even revolutionary!) Summertime Fun pure silvercoin! Celebrate the joys of North American summer months, and the moments that become lasting memories. The Royal Canadian Mint captures a light-hearted moment and freezes it in time, forever preserving the spirit of summertime. Canadian artist John Mantha, in an original work of art, depicts the carefree spirit that prevails in the sun-filled days of summer, epitomized by the boy in the foreground. School is out and for this youth, there’s no better way to soak up the sunshine and enjoy a reprieve from the heat than taking a refreshing swim outdoors. Arms outstretched, the carefree lad has leaped from the wooden dock to jump into the cool water below. In the background, pine trees and mountains appear in the distance, an idyllic setting reminiscent of many of Canada’s lakes. The creative point of view pulls the viewer into the scene: it is as though they, too, are there by the lake, basking in the warm rays of the summer sun while surrounded by the natural beauty of Canada’s great outdoors! Capture this charming moment, expertly minted in pure silver!

No-Exposure Proposal
Precious silver, a limited mintage, and a $20 denomination - here's a no-risk proposition if there ever was one! With economists becoming more and more anxious about the rising debt levels of Western nations, the timing couldn't be better. (Think about the incredibly huge federal budget deficit, all the states' financial problems, and the recent defaults in Europe.) The worry of fiat (paper) money ending up worthless also contributes to the ongoing rise in popularity of precious metals. Well, here's some relief - a precious metals coin with a high face value, too!

Consider just this one simple fact - we're selling this unique $20 Silver Commemorative coin at a price that's less than its on-the-table, in-your-hand value - the $20 denomination plus the $5.00 spot value of the silver (at current (as of this writing) $20+ per ounce silver) is essentially its price - and the quantity discounts make this an even better buy!

It Simply Adds Up
Do the math:   High Face Value + Significant Precious Metal Content + Outdoors Theme + Mintage Limit = No-Risk Winner
