Welcome to the Canadian Landscapes Series, the popular new series of spectacular proof-finish coins from the Royal Canadian Mint. Combining the Mint's proprietary colorization techniques with superbly engraved relief, this pure silver proof recreates the rare beauty of the dramatic landscapes and vistas of the Great White North! Inspired by the majesty that is the Canadian wilderness, each is struck in one full troy ounce of pure silver; with a total worldwide mintage of only 7,500 (far too low for such a beautiful and affordable pure silver proof), a fast sell out at the Mint is expected!Canadian Landscapes #2 - Lake Magog

The beauty of Lake Magog in this unspoiled wilderness is renowned among outdoor enthusiasts, and celebrated with this dazzling coin that features an artistic rendering of the park's famed Tower Peak.

An Original Work of Art!
The design by Canadian artist Stéphanie Gauvin creates an artistic rendering of Lake Magog, located in Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park. Playing on the light and shadows cast by the early morning sun, the artist’s brush strokes capture the landscape’s many contrasts, as rendered by finely detailed engraving. In the background, the famous, pyramid-like shape of Mount Assiniboine looms over the lake and its glacier base. Its commanding height is noticeable as it fills the top of the design. Below it, Lake Magog’s mirror-like water glistens in the early light, surrounded by the valley and trees. The viewer's eye is drawn to it thanks to the off-the-charts colors, a reflectoin of the lake onto the coin, which allows for the diffraction of light. This innovative method of adding color is what gives the lake its brilliant blue hue, while the green trees in the foreground provide added dimension and vibrancy to the image.
