Product Description

Two new technologies (Canvas Effect and Texturized Color) bring these outdoor paintings to life in this innovative new program, En Plein Air. Beautiful tulips light up the canvas on this widest, thinnest ever (60 mm or 2-1/2 inches in diameter) one troy ounce pure silver proof!

Imagine coming upon a scene so inspiring, it leaves you yearning to preserve the splendor of that particular moment in time, when nature serves as both muse and studio. Quickly now - set up your easel and canvas outdoors, and break out the paints and brushes! This is the very essence of painting en plein air, in the great outdoors!

These are Canada's thinnest one troy ounce pure silver coins ever, each measuring 60 mm across (that's 2-1/2 inches, folks)! These extra-large planchets make the perfect tableau for each virtuoso work of art. Each issue in this beautiful new 3-coin series celebrates the art of the artist who works outdoors:

    1) Springtime Gifts - Tulip Blossoms
    2) Maritime Memories - Fishing Boats in Harbor
    3) A Paddle Awaits - Kayak on the Wharf

An Original Work of Art!
The design by Canadian artist Elizabeth Sim has created an immersive viewing experience by blurring the line between perception and reality. Stretching across the entire tableau, the borderless background image offers a photo-realistic close-up of a flowerbed - specifically one that showcases several Canada 150 tulips in full bloom. In contrast, the easel-mounted canvas in the foreground is positioned in a way that suggests the viewer is in fact the artist, as the eye naturally lingers on the finished painting of the white and red-flamed tulip blossoms. This simulation of the plein air painting experience is further enhanced by the integration of two advanced technologies: Texturized Colour, which gives the design its sense of depth and dimension by subtly raising the easel and canvas; and Canvas Effect, which artfully adds a touch of realism by mimicking the surface textures of a finished painting, including the artist’s brushstrokes!

There are no legends on the obverse to mar or interrupt the beauty of the artistic design.

Three Innovative Technologies Come Together to Produce A Masterpiece!
Three new and  innovative technologies from the Royal Canadian Mint masterfully combine for a true-to-life viewing experience:
 1) Texturized Color raises some of the elements (like the easel-mounted canvas) and provide a sense of depth to the design!
 2) Canvas Effect Technology adds life-like texture to the painting!
 3) Thinnest Coins Ever crafted from 1 troy ounce of 99.99% pure silver, these extra-thin coins produce an extra-large diameter (60 mm or 2-1/2 inches) - perfect for an immersive design that covers the entire face, from edge to edge!

Technology Note - Color
The Royal Canadian Mint leads the world with its proprietary colorization technology, in which the color is actually sealed on the coin. The intricate detail, smooth gradients, and extreme precision of the technology create a stunning look on each coin.
