2007 Canadian $30 Achievements: Panoramic Picture Niagara Falls Proof Sterling Silver Hologram Coin

 

The Royal Canadian Mint recreates the awe inspiring quality of Niagara Falls on this $30 Silver coin through the magnificent use of photographic hologram technology. The colours are so true to life that you will feel that you are actually in the presence of Niagara Fall's rushing waters.

As photography emerged in the early 19th century to deliver a level of realism the world had never seen, those who sought to recreate Canada's vastness using a lens found even this latest technology could not capture the full scope of the scenery that lay before them.

Finally, success! Canadian John R. Connon's invention of 1887 was one in a flurry of technological innovations that enabled this new generation of artists to capture a vast image on film - from 180 to a full 360 degrees! Just like the early adventurers that had trekked hundreds miles and scaled colossal heights, photographers triumphed over Canada's seemingly unconquerable landscape, bringing a true sense of this stunning world to those who could not venture there - a vision that propelled photography throughout the 20th century and reigns to this day.

 

Features

- Part of the collector coins series celebrating Canada's technical achievements
- The invention of the panoramic camera by Canadian John R. Connon in 1887, which revolutionized photography by making it possible to capture stunning vistas such as Niagara Falls on film, in 180 or 360 degree views, is immortalized in this coin. 

 

Design

The coin depicts a panoramic view of Niagara Falls in a colour photographic hologram, surrounding an engraving of a camera capturing the dramatic scenery. This design, by Saskatchewan artist Chris Jordison, evokes the countless photographs taken by millions of visitors to this natural wonder of the world. The obverse of this coin features Canadian artist Susanna Blunt's design of the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
