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!

Winter brings new opportunities for North Americans to enjoy their natural surroundings; in the Canadian Rockies, snow transforms the mountainous landscape into a veritable alpine playground. After a day spent happily outdoors, there is no better way to warm up than to sit by the roaring fireplace in a warm and welcoming ski chalet. With its rustic charm, a chalet (such as the one depicted in this coin) offers the perfect opportunity to reconnect with family and friends, or simply with nature itself!

An Original Work of Art!
The design by Canadian artist Stéphanie Gauvin creates an artistic rendering of an idyllic mid-winter scene set in the wilderness of the Canadian Rockies. Surrounded by the snow-covered alpine landscape with its towering trees, a quaint wooden chalet at a ski resort radiates a rustic charm and warmth that proved to be a welcome sight for one skier, whose skis stand upright in the snow as a testament to a day spent outdoors. But daylight is fading; as it descends into the horizon, the late afternoon sun casts long shadows with its colorful glow, which infuses the scene with a remarkable variety of hues that add to the overall artistry of this engraved scene.
