Canadian Landscape Coin Series

by blackspanielgallery

The Royal Canadian Mint is issuing a new and exciting coin series, the Canadian Landscape coin series of fine silver coins that are beautifully colorized.

The Royal Canadian Mint issues some of the most beautiful coins in the world. The commitment to quality is apparent. One of the things the Royal Canadian Mint does very well is selectively colorize silver coins with enamel. The contrast between the brightly shinning fine silver luster and the bold and striking colors of the enamel can turn a coin into a work of art, and the Royal Canadian Mint dose indeed produce works of art.

The Landscape Series

First Coin Dated 2016

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,
  • Hiking.

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.


One Coin Series among Many

In 2015, the Royal Canadian Mint has issued one after another of some incredibly beautiful coins.  This is just one fantastic series, but others also exist.  I highly recommend the Songbirds of Canada as another extraordinary series.  It is covered in another article.  The link to that article is provided below. 


Then, the Looney Tunes coin series must also be mentioned, with some incredible designs featuring some popular cartoon characters in brilliant color.


What the next silver coin series from the Royal Canadian Mint will be is a mystery, but there always seems to be another new series following immediately behind every series release, and it is the custom of the Royal Canadian Mint to continue with more high quality coins.
