Towering over the western Canadian landscape, the Rocky Mountains have long been used as symbols of Canada's rugged, unspoiled wilderness. Countless outdoor enthusiasts and artists are drawn to area parks including British Columbia's Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, where they find adventure and inspiration in its many breathtaking vistas—including the sight of Mount Assiniboine rising up above Lake Magog, as depicted on this coin.
A perfect gift for a friend or a family member who enjoys the great outdoors. Order your coin today!


Special features:
The second in a series of four beautifully coloured coins which celebrate the awe-inspiring
Lake Magog, British Columbia's Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park and the landscape of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
This finely detailed, engraved recreation of Gauvin's painting offers to Canadian landscape lovers a truly piece of art.
Your coin is crafted from 99.99% pure silver, is GST/HST exempt, and has a limited mintage worldwide.

Design:
The reverse image by Canadian artist Stéphanie Gauvin features an artistic rendering of Lake Magog, located in Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park. Playing on the light and shadows cast by the early morning sun, the artist's brush strokes capture the landscape's many contrasts, as rendered by finely detailed engraving. In the background, the famous, pyramid-like shape of Mount Assiniboine looms over the lake and its glacier base. Its commanding height is noticeable as it fills the top of the design. Below it, Lake Magog's mirror-like water glistens in the early light, surrounded by the valley and trees. The viewer's eye is drawn to it thanks to the colours, a replica of the natural depiction of the lake onto the coin, which allows for the diffraction of light. This innovative method of adding colour is what gives the lake its brilliant blue hue, while the green trees in the foreground provide added dimension and vibrancy to the image.

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