Canadian artist Calder Moore created a captivating and immersive design filled with rich, vibrant colour. The compelling tilt-shift perspective uses strategic sizing and placement of the balloons—a larger balloon extending beyond the field of the coin, and progressively smaller balloons disappearing in the distance—to create an exceptional depth of field that draws the viewer in, as if they are in a basket, gazing out at dozens of other balloonists out for a ride down a mountain valley. Majestic mountains in the distance enhance the sense of depth, while a red-and-white maple leaf balloon salutes Canada's rich ballooning tradition.

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with black beauty box.
