The Winter Phenomenon Series of silver proof coins from the Royal Canadian Mint introduced for the first time the use of enhanced finishes to recreate the look and feel of various landscapes across the country. The first coin in the series uses innovative technology and artistry to bring the freeze of winter to life.
This design from Tony Bianco includes the recent freeze of winter as rain and ice combine to bring the world to a halt. In spite of these conditions, nature pushes onward. The weather doesnt stop a group of evening grosbeaks from coming out to admire the newly frosted environment of Canada.
On the reverse side of the 2015 1 oz Proof Canadian Silver Weather Phenomenon Winter Freeze Coin is the image of three evening grosbeaks, with traditional yellow, brown, and white coloring sitting on a frozen cherry tree looking out over the frozen landscape at a covered bridge in the distance.
The obverse of all Canadian Silver Weather Phenomenon Winter Freeze Coins includes the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys effigy on this coin was created in 2003 by Susanna Blunt and appears on all modern Canadian currency.
Each 2015 1 oz Proof Canadian Silver Weather Phenomenon Winter Freeze Coin ships to you in a protective maroon clamshell courtesy of the Royal Canadian Mint, making the perfect display piece for your new proof coin.
The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in Ottawa, the federal capital city in 1908. Originally opened to give the nation independent control of its coinage, it also refined gold and other precious metals from the Yukon Territories for the British. Today it has a second facility in Winnipeg which opened in the 1980s.
