AT THE PEAK OF WONDERMENT - THE CANADIAN ROCKIES - COLOURED
The second in a series of magnificent coins celebrating Canada's natural wonders, this coin shows the stunning grandeur of the Canadian Rockies. The brilliantly coloured image brings out the beauty of this majestic mountain range.
The biggest mountain chain in North America runs through Canada along the Alberta-British Columbia border. A seemingly impenetrable wall of massive peaks, the Canadian Rockies shaped this country’s development.
Some parks in the Canadian Rockies are larger than European countries. The sheer size of this natural reserve boggles the mind. This is the place where some of the world’s most spectacular mountain scenery can be found – a treasure-trove of natural wonders, historic marvels and fascinating wildlife that astonishes some 9 million visitors very year.
Designed by Royal Canadian Mint engraver Jose Osio, the coins depicts the grandeur of the Canadian Rockies. This coin's attractive design and .9999-pure Silver content make it an ideal item for collectors.
The coin comes encapsulated and presented in the original wooden box of issue. It is protected by a Royal Canadian Mint branded beauty box which pictures The Rockies. It's accompanied by a booklet of authenticity (the included numbered certificate of authenticity tells the story of the Rockies).
