Special features:
NEW SERIES! Your coin is the first of three 99.99% pure silver coins in an exquisite new series called Under The Sea, which features some of the marvels found in Canadian waters!
A MINT FIRST! The seahorse-shaped glass element is the result of a laborious handcrafted process in which different colours of glass rods (stringers) are layered and fused together to form a colourful mosaic that reveals the final image when sliced, also known as a mosaic murrini.
EACH GLASS PIECE IS A UNIQUE PIECE OF ART! The handcrafted nature of both the murrini element and its glass enclosure make each coin unique.
UNIQUE GLASS EMBELLISHMENT! Despite its delicate appearance, the glass embellishment is sculpted from borosilicate glass, which is highly resilient yet lightweight.
ARTFULLY INTEGRATES THE ILLUSION OF WATER! In the background, the coin's silver surface is artfully integrated to create the illusion of water, while the eye-catching colour adds vibrancy to the engraved design.
AN ARTISTIC COLLABORATION! Your coin was the collaboration of two artists! The pure silver coin was designed by Canadian artist Maurice Gervais, while the glass embellishment was handcrafted by Canadian glass artist Loïc Beaumont-Tremblay!
ONE-OUNCE 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN! Your coin is GST/HST exempt!
LOW MINTAGE: Only 7,500 coins will be made available worldwide. Hurry and order yours today before they are all gone!

Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Maurice Gervais, your coin offers a glimpse of the hidden underwater world off Canada's Atlantic Coast, thanks to its depiction of a shallow sea grass habitat. The application of vivid coloured enamel over the detailed engraving recreates the textured rocks, seashells and swaying green grasses that line the sandy ocean floor. To the right, a handcrafted glass embellishment by Canadian glass artist Loïc Beaumont-Tremblay contains a striking seahorse-shaped mosaic murrini element. The mosaic-based approach to this glass art technique lends itself well to recreating the seahorse's speckled colouring, while other features such as its bony armour, pointed snout and curled tail are equally captured in extraordinary detail. The murrini piece has its own protection thanks to its resilient glass enclosure sculpted from borosilicate glass.

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