Store Category: Geometry in Art. With a haunting call that reverberates across many of Canada’s lakes, the common loon is a national icon that is associated with the serene, unspoiled beauty of the wilderness. Using the low poly art style that was born out of digital modelling techniques, the coin beautifully captures both the majesty of a mountain lake setting and the stately nature of this beloved bird species, for a modern reinterpretation of a timeless Canadian scene. A perfect gift for someone who enjoys a never-before-seen coin design and technique! EACH POLYGON IS DISTINCT: Each polygon is made distinct from the other through extraordinary sculpting, cutting-edge technology and advanced finishing techniques, while the application of bold colour adds vibrancy and alters our perception of dimension and light. UNIQUE USE OF LOW POLY ART: The careful selection of each colour gives the cloudless summer sky its dazzling cerulean tone, making it the perfect backdrop for the towering white and grey peaks of the Rocky Mountainsall beautifully recreated using the hard lines and edges that are characteristic of low poly art. CUTTING-EDGE TECHNIQUES FOR A DIMENSIONAL DESIGN : Exceptional engraving, relief and the application of different finishing techniques add distinctiveness to the polygon shapes that form the stylized image, resulting in a stunning composition that showcases our exceptional level of craftsmanship and innovative artistic vision! Your coin is crafted from 99.99% pure silver, is GST/HST exempt, and has a limited mintage worldwide. About the Design: Designed by Canadian artist Calder Moore, your coin features a stylized portrait of two common loons in a pristine, natural setting that speaks of the majesty of Canada’s wilderness! Geometry, technology and art intersect as the entirety of the image is presented in a low poly art style, bringing together multiple polygon shapes in this depiction of an adult loon and its offspring. In the foreground, the adult loon is a picture of grace and elegance as it calmly floats on the surface of a blue lake, surrounded by the tranquility of an evergreen forest that is rich with detail and colour. Underwater, the young loon demonstrates the species’ remarkable diving abilities as it uses its webbed feet to propel it forward like a torpedo, its beak quickly closing in on the small fish that will provide it with a well-earned aquatic feast. Packaging: Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a graphic beauty box. 99.99% pure silver. Calder Moore (reverse), Susanna Blunt (obverse).
