Canada 2017 Night Skiing Glow-in-the-Dark $15 SilverCelebrating the Great Outdoors - Around the Campfire!
The design by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel captures the mood in an idyllic lakeside setting, where two campers are enjoying a fireside moment. Blue and purple shades dominate the landscape, where the shadowy shapes of rolling hills and dense forest rise up along the horizon. In the sky, pink hues are the last, lingering reminders of daylight, as a canopy of stars emerges overhead.
Photo-luminescent (glow-in-the-dark) technology re-creates the luminous shine of a full moon and its reflection on the lake, where a loon and two chicks swim in the moonlight. On the sandy beach, a camper dude rests on a rock while his lady sits on a log. Both are quietly enjoying each other’s company while taking in the beauty of their surroundings. Their profiles are softly illuminated by the warm glow of the campfire “burning” bright at the center of the coin, not far from the pitched tent that is illuminated from within.

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

Glow in the Dark Photoluminescent Technology
Photo-luminescent technology transports the viewer into the scene. The full effect of the coin is best viewed in the dark after placing it directly under a light source for at least 60 seconds. Natural daylight and halogen light work best, followed by incandescent bulbs. Fluorescent light may take the longest to charge the coin.
