Weather Phenomenon #3 - RainbowMiraculous Beauty!
Few are immune to the feelings of wonder, hope and awe that stir at the sight of that many-hued arc, for no natural phenomenon is as welcome as the rainbow! After each rainfall, the young and young-at-heart search the skies, eager to identify the red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet hues that curve across the firmament. Legends may persist about what lies at a rainbow's end (a pot of gold, anyone?), but its appearance is certainly a joy in itself and easily lifts spirits as the dark, stormy skies clear.

The Mint has truly outdone itself this time! Detailed engraving and selective color bring to life this natural phenomenon as it descends from the dark sky to the engraved farmland below. And this coin features a Mint first! The artful combination of diffused light technology and vivid hues recreates the bright tones of the rainbow while allowing the engraved background to faintly show through - just as it would appear outdoors before your very own eyes!

An Original Work of Art!
The image by Canadian artist Tony Bianco combines detailed engraving, innovative color technology and various finishing techniques to showcase a brilliantly hued rainbow on a stormy day. Against the rolling hills in the background, a farmhouse and barn sit atop a gentle slope where a road leads to two round bales in the foreground. The eye is naturally drawn to the multi-colored arc that descends from the dark storm clouds above; here, the skillful combination of diffused technology and vivid tones adds a subtle transparent quality to the rainbow’s radiant colors, and a faint glow above it, as the rain tapers off. There’s a hopeful clearing above this rural landscape, with the appearance of blue sky in the break between the clouds behind the rainbow. With this pure silver coin, the Royal Canadian Mint captures nature’s beauty and resilience in the aftermath of a serious storm event.
