Product Description

Get this second in the new and innovative Weather Phenomenon series! Combining color with the new, cutting-edge Ice Effect Technology, this pure silver proof recreates the miraculous novelty and beauty of a winter freeze, covering everything in a glaze of ice!

Investment Opportunity!Welcome to Weather Phenomenon, the new and innovative series of spectacular proof-finish coins from the Royal Canadian Mint. Combining the Mint's proprietary colorization techniques with their new, cutting-edge Ice Effect Technology, this pure silver proof recreates the drama and intensity of the most powerful forces on the planet! This innovative and dramatic approach to coin design, inspired by the majesty of the weather phenomenon it depicts, is struck in one full troy ounce of pure silver; with a total worldwide mintage of only 8,000 (far too low for such an innovative and affordable pure silver proof), a fast sell out at the Mint is expected!

This extreme demonstration of nature's power and unpredictability looks magnificent. Freezing rain and ice might bring the world to a halt, yet despite the precarious conditions, nature carries on. The weather barely clears and the birds are out, just like the evening grosbeaks on this coin. Each one shines with golden hues of yellow alongside red berries and a covered bridge that stands out from the landscape. And, with the application of the high gloss Ice Effect Technology overlay, you will almost be convinced the ice on this coin is a real freezing glaze!

Weather Phenomenon #2 - Winter FreezeAn Original Work of Art - By Two Artists!
The image by Canadian artists Tony Bianco and Arnold Nogy features three evening grosbeaks (Coccothraustes vespertinus) as they move along ice-covered branches. Selective color allows for the birds and berries in the foreground to stand out from the engraved countryside in the background, while the addition of high gloss overlay recreates the glistening icy veneer of a midwinter freeze.

As residents of Eastern Canada know all too well, there are few displays of nature’s unpredictability quite like a mid-winter freeze. This weather phenomenon may be treacherous as it transforms roads and fields into veritable skating rinks, but this icy veneer also adds an indisputable beauty to the winter landscape. With this pure silver coin, the Royal Canadian Mint captures nature’s beauty and resilience in the aftermath of an icy mid-winter freeze.
