New Coin! 2017 $30 FINE SILVER COIN ANIMALS IN THE MOONLIGHT: ORCAS

Posted by Tim Hanson on

Encountering orcas in the wild is one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights, but here, during the hush of twilight, the scene is utterly sublime. Exquisite engraving and colour reveal a breathtaking image of two orcas as they swim along the Pacific Coast at sundown.

The third entry in this series, the Mint has employed glow-in-the-dark features to give this coin a spectacular twist when the lights go out - the reverse of the coin becomes a sunset vista with golden rays shining through the clouds and on the water!

Canadian artist Vanessa Miller has captured the incomparable beauty of the Pacific coast during a spectacular sunset that sends fiery colour through the clouds and illuminates the mountains and coastline in the distance. The stillness is palpable when two orcas unexpectedly emerge from the glassy smooth water. Tiny waves ripple out as they cruise by, belying the size and power of the animals 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.

Available in-store and online for the Mint-issue price of $189.95, be sure to snatch this one up before they're gone!
