This beautiful 1 Oz Silver coin is the first release in the new three-coin series From Sea To Sea To Sea and celebrates the rich marine life found along Canadas Atlantic, Arctic and Pacific coasts. In this edition, the Starfish. The coin has a beautiful selective Gold plating and comes in a case, along with the Certificate of Authenticity. Limited mintage to 7.500 pieces worldwide. The reverse design by Canadian artist Tony Bianco, presents a unique glimpse of Atlantic Canadas coastal waters. Above the surface of the water stands a lighthouse on the rocky shoreline, where the sentinel was often the first sign of land to many travelling by sea. The crashing wave infuses the reverse with a sense of sweeping motion while transitioning to the underwater realm, where an outstanding amount of engraved details recreate an ocean floor littered with shells and dotted with coral. The use of selective gold plating draws the eye to the two starfish, while providing an enhanced view of their defining characteristics. Against the silver background, the gold plating truly shines as it highlights the rough and spiny appearance of the five-armed ocean-dwellers, and adds a life-like sense of texture and dimension to this idyllic aquatic setting. On top of the reverse, the inscription: CANADA the issuing country. The obverse of the coin depicts the Gold plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: ELIZABETH II the name of the Queen, 2017 the year of issue, D · G · REGINA Dei Gratia Regina and 20 DOLLARS the face value.
