The 2017 ¾ oz Proof Canadian Silver Great Canadian Outdoors Night Skiing Coin is the first in a new four-coin series from the Royal Canadian Mint combining .9999 pure silver content and full color designs over an engraved image with photo-luminescent technology in play on the reverse design features.
Considered a luminous celebration of the great outdoors that are celebrated by all Canadians, this new coin is brilliant and beautiful in the daylight and the dark of night. The coin’s warm, life-like glow is visible under the light of the sun, with the luminous effect of the photo-luminescent technology helps the imagery glow in the dark when the lights are out and the sun is down.
On the reverse of the 2017 ¾ oz Proof Canadian Silver Great Canadian Outdoors Night Skiing Coin you’ll find the image of a skier carving his way down a snowy hillside between a grove of pine trees blanketed in snow. If you leave the coin under direct light for 30 to 60 seconds, you’ll notice the entire design engraving visible in the dark, even from inside its capsule!
The obverse of these silver coins includes the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is a staple on Canadian coinage, having appeared on the obverse of all coins since her ascension to the throne of England in 1952.
Each of these coins arrives in a maroon clamshell with black beauty case from the Royal Canadian Mint. These coins also include a Certificate of Authenticity with purchase.
The Royal Canadian Mint was founded in 1908 to provide the nation with independent control over its coinage. What began with a single facility in Ottawa, the federal capital city, has grown to include a second facility in Winnipeg.
