One of the best of the Canadian colorized coin series is the Landscape Series. The Landscape Series is a short, four coin series, which is ideal for collectors. At the time of this writing the first coin of this series has been made available.
The coins in this series are limited to a mintage of seven thousand five hundred coins for each of the four coin designs. The coins come with a serialized certificate and each has a denomination for twenty dollars Canadian. The coins are being minted with the highly desired proof finish, which means the coins are struck in a special manner with greater pressure so as to produce a clear, sharp image. The coins are being struck in 0.9999 pure silver with a weight of one Troy ounce, a standard made popular by the Royal Canadian Mint.
The obverse of each coin has the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, which is common for Canadian coinage. The reverse contains the landscape images, a different image for each issue.
The four coins will contain the following images on their reverses:
- The Rockies, a stunning image of the Canadian Rockies;
- The Lake;
- Après-ski; and,
The Rockies coin depicts a scene from British Columbia’s beautiful Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park.
These coins are available at the Royal Canadian Mint both as individual coins and as a subscription. Just click the links to learn more about the coins, and the subscription option where you buy one coin at a time and spread your purchases over time. The Royal Canadian Mint is very easy to work with. I strongly recommend you look at their incredible products. And, they currently ship to Canada and the United states free with a purchase of $100 or more, which can be much less than $100 in United States currency.
