Product Description

Canada: 2018 $3 Canadian Coasts: Pacific Sunset Pure Silver Gold-Plated Coin

Design: Designed by Maurade Baynton, the setting sun is at the centre of your coin’s design. Selective gold plating adds a warm, golden hue to the stylized representation of the sun, which evokes images or memories of spectacular sunsets along Canada’s Pacific Coast. The sun’s warmth and beauty radiates outwards, towards the intricately engraved icons that form a concentric pattern around the centre, much like a compass. As though warmed by the sunlight, the Kermode bear (Ursus americanus kermodei) or spirit bear that famously inhabits British Columbia’s coastal rainforests is also highlighted with selective gold plating. The sailboat represents the sailing tradition along British Columbia’s coast, be it recreational or for fishing, while another great cultural icon, the orca (Orcinus orca), symbolizes our timeless connection with the sea. Gold plating also highlights the rim that frames the reverse, to reinforce the idea that everything in nature is beautifully interconnected. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
