Product Description

Get this first in a new series, From Sea to Sea to Sea, depicting the Atlantic Starfish and a lighthouse on Canada's East Coast, enhanced with 24-karat gold plating on this one troy ounce, pure silver proof coin!

Canada’s national motto (Ad Mare Usque Ad Mari) pays tribute to the oceans that border this great nation! These waters, and the life within them, have long nurtured, challenged and fascinated Canadians. The rich diversity of life in the Pacific, Arctic and Atlantic Oceans is an important part of Canada’s maritime heritage, and is at the heart of a three-coin series that begins with the starfish (Asterias rubens) on Canada’s Atlantic East Coast.

An Original Work of Art!
Designed by Canadian nature artist Tony Bianco, the design presents an unique glimpse of Atlantic Canada’s coastal waters. Beneath the engraved legend CANADA stands a lighthouse on the rocky shoreline, where the sentinel was often the first sign of land to many traveling by sea. The crashing wave infuses the reverse with a sense of sweeping motion while transitioning to the underwater realm, where an outstanding amount of engraved details recreate an ocean floor littered with shells and dotted with coral. The selective application of 24-karat gold plating draws the eye to the two starfish, while providing an enhanced view of their defining characteristics. Against the silver background, the gold plating truly shines as it highlights the rough and spiny appearance of the five-armed ocean-dwellers, and adds a life-like sense of texture and dimension to this idyllic aquatic setting.
