2019 Canadian $3 The Elements - Fine Silver Coloured 4-Coin Set


They are the four elements that were believed by the ancient Greeks to be the pillars of life: Earth, grounding and nourishing; Air, always in motion; Fire, provider of heat and light; and Water, constantly flowing. They are the cornerstones of our natural world. And they are especially significant in a nation like ours, with an identity that is so strongly tied to nature.

This four-coin set is an original concept proposed by long-time collector and Masters Club member, Bernard Dumais. Its design is a Canadian take on the four elements, complete with maple leaves. And like a four-part image, each square coin comes together to illustrate how these elemental forces of nature have all shaped Canada’s past, present and future—from the warm chinook to our flowing rivers, and a burning sense of pride for it all.

A gorgeous fire, air, earth, water 4-coin set, all one image! Order today!


Features

FIRE. AIR. EARTH. WATER! Your pure silver set features a four-part image. Each square coin is a quadrant, and when all four coins are tiled, they complete a circular illustration of the four forces of nature in Canada.
A POWERFUL FIRST IMPRESSION! From the moment you open the clamshell case, you’ll see the full design. All four coins come individually encapsulated and securely placed in a recessed insert, to be viewed and displayed as one complete set.
THE FOUR ELEMENTS MAKE THEIR DEBUT. This theme has never been featured on a Canadian coin (until now). This is our first exploration of a concept that was fundamental to the ancient sciences and philosophy. Instead of symbols, we opted for a visual storytelling approach by highlighting the impact of these forces of nature in Canada.
EXCEPTIONAL DETAILS! The carefully sculpted design is rich in detail, with different frostings that transform an etched image into a dynamic piece of art.
A TOUCH OF COLOUR! In all four corners of the completed design, the maple leaves are transformed by seasonal colours: red, gold, brown, and green.
LOW MINTAGE! Only 2,000 coin sets will be made available worldwide.
INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
NO GST/HST!


Design

Designed by artist Rebecca Yanovskaya, your four-part image ties together the four elements within a circle that represents a continuous circle—Canada’s past, present, and future. Each square coin features a quadrant named (in English and in French) for an elemental energy, with all four elements bleeding into the other:

“FIRE FEU” features the comforting glow of a campfire that symbolizes heat and light, with maple leaf-shaped flames that represent pride burning in the hearts of Canadians.
“AIR” is represented by the warm chinook that descends the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains, and the winds that provide lift for our migratory bird species.
“EARTH TERRE” features the forests, rocks and fields that are the foundation of this land.
“WATER EAU” is represented by a fast-flowing river filled with salmon to symbolize the fisheries.

The completed circle is framed by red, gold, brown, and green-coloured maple leaves, the beloved symbol of Canada. Each reverse includes the engraved word “CANADA” and the year “2019”. Each obverse features the face value “3 DOLLARS” and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


Packaging

From the moment you open the case, you’ll see the completed design. All four coins come individually encapsulated and securely in place in a custom recessed insert, which allows you to view and display them as a set.
