Welcome to the innovative Geometry in Art Program, the popular new series of spectacular, one troy ounce pure silver proof-finish coins from the Royal Canadian Mint. The goal of the Geometry in Art Program is to put a new take on the familiar designs of Canada's circulating coinage. As digital artists seek to recreate the physical world through dimensional images, modeling techniques based on geometric shapes have given way to a new visual style, called low poly art. This eye-catching series utilizes this art style to present a contemporary spin on and highly artistic interpretation of  five of Canada’s most famous icons, taken from its legal tender denominations:

    #1 Loon
    #2 Polar Bear
    #3 Caribou
    #4 Beaver
    #5 Maple Leaf

    + #4 Beaver in Custom 5-Coin Presentation Case

Iconic BeaverThis ingenious coin design brings together a mass of polygons to create a captivating image of a mother beaver and her baby kit building their dam. Known as “low poly” art, this geometric technique has been merged with outstanding sculpting, cutting-edge technology and advanced finishing techniques. The result? A stunning design with exceptional relief that defines every polygon, and rich, bold colors that bring depth, dimension and a powerful sense of shadow and light to the scene. Breathtaking use of color furthers the design. In keeping with the low poly art style, lustrous colors contribute to the perception of depth and shadows.

An Original Work of Art!
The design by Canadian artist Calder Moore features a stylized portrait oft a mother beaver and her baby kit presented in an eye-catching low poly art style. Extraordinary sculpting, cutting-edge technology and advanced finishing techniques allow each polygon to appear distinct from the other throughout the design. The geometric lines and sharp corners recreate the branches used by the beavers as building material for their dam, yet these same lines are somewhat softened by the color variations between each polygon, playfully altering our perception of shadow, light and dimension and conveying the rounded shape of each beaver. The half-submerged perspective allows an underwater glimpse of the dam rising up from the mud at the bottom of the pond, while the deep blue sky above adds vibrancy to the green conifers along the rocky cliffs in the background.
