A Masterwork of Technology and Wildlife Fine Art!
On this stunning tableau by Canadian artist Vanessa Miller, detailed engraving and glow in the dark technology capture the incomparable beauty of the Pacific coast during a spectacular sunset that sends fiery color through the clouds and illuminates the mountains and coastline in the distance. The stillness is palpable as two orcas unexpectedly emerge from the glassy smooth water. Tiny waves ripple out as they cruise by, belying the size and power of these creatures that are creating them. The day’s final light glistens on the orcas’ wet, streamlined bodies, revealing their signature white markings, and their distinctive dorsal fins - the tall upright triangular shape of a male, and the smaller backward curving form of a female.

Photo-luminescent technology transports the viewer into the scene. For full effect, the coin is best viewed in the dark after placing it under a light source for at least 60 seconds.

There are no legends on the obverse, to allow the complete majesty of the scene to shine in its full glory.
