A symbol of majesty and might, the lion makes its Canadian debut on a pure silver coin that is fully gold-plated to give it a golden-hour glow. This extraordinary coin is a rare opportunity to own an engraved rendering of an original painting by Canada’s foremost wildlife artist and naturalist, Robert Bateman. Each coin is accompanied by a special insert that features a printed reproduction of the original painting, along with the artist’s description of his work and his signature. To re-create the realistic art style, It had to be combined a multitude of finely etched details with different frostings that alter the way each element shines in the light. The finished product is a collectible piece of art—one that pays tribute to the artist’s legacy and ability to immerse us in a natural world that extends beyond national boundaries.
