Product Description

Get this second in this popular series, From Sea to Sea to Sea, depicting the Pacific Salmon on Canada's West Coast off British Columbia, 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 this three-coin series.

Canada’s West Coast is exemplified by the Pacific salmon featured on this second coin in the From Sea to Sea to Sea series. This species is famous for an epic migration that is nothing short of awe-inspiring, while its economic, cultural and ecological impact have cemented the salmon’s reputation as a true icon of Canada’s Pacific coast.

An Original Work of Art!
Created by Canadian artist Tony Bianco, the design travels to the coastal waters of British Columbia to offer a glimpse of marine life in the Pacific Ocean. The engraved word CANADA hangs in the air over the breaking swell waves, which add a sense of motion to the design as they sweep over the increasingly shallow water. Transitioning to the underwater realm, an exceptional amount of detail brings the rock-lined sea floor to life; one can easily imagine the soft swaying motion of the plants as each wave moves over the top in quick succession. Nonetheless, the focus of the design remains the two chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) as they feast on small fish. The selective application of 24-karat gold plating highlights the intricacy of the engraved design, which recreates the textured appearance of the salmon’s scales and fins to provide a more life-like portrait of this iconic species.
