2021 Montreal Incident UFO 1oz Silver Coin-Canada’s Unexplained Phenomena-Blacklight-Fresnel effect. A coin with two dynamic technologies! Relive a famous UFO sighting in downtown Montréal! Dubbed the “Montréal Incident, ” this famous UFO sighting has been re-created on our fourth Unexplained Phenomena coin. Its colourful, glow-in-the-dark design transports you to the rooftop pool at the Hôtel Bonaventure Montréal on the night of November 7, 1990, when a mysterious object suddenly appeared in the sky. Under normal lighting, the unique Fresnel optical effect alters that way light reflects on the coin depending on your viewing angle-tilt the coin and you’ll see! Shine the included blacklight onto the coin, and the UFO’s light beams are enhanced revealing the mysterious starship. From unusual sightings to strange encounters, this series of colourful coins brings you some of Canada’s most fascinating tales of unexplained phenomena. Coin #4 features a colourful re-telling of the Montréal Incident in November 1990, when a UFO was spotted from the rooftop pool at the Hôtel Bonaventure Montréal. A MINT FIRST: FRESNEL BEAMS! On your coin’s reverse, the UFO’s light beams are enhanced by a Fresnel optical effect-a first for the RCM! An array of features has been engineered in a way that alters the way the light reflects off the coin, so that it appears to move in, out and across the beams depending on your viewing angle. The UFO’s bright light beams colourfully lit up the night sky, and they certainly do on your coin’s reverse. Your coin comes with a black light flashlight that activates the embedded black light paint technology, which emphasizes the outline of the UFO and adds an intense, colourful glow to the light beams that are also reflected on the pool surface. Like the 2019 coin that depicted the Shag Harbour Incident, this 1 oz. 99.99% pure silver rectangular coin features a vertical orientation that emphasizes height. It shows the UFO hovering in place above the rooftop pool of the 17-storey building, high above Montréal’s busy downtown core. The obverse’s engraved field pattern is a nod to the reverse design, and to the mysterious light beams that were observed by multiple witnesses on the night of November 7, 1990. Whether you’re fascinated by UFOs, or you just love a colourful coin that tells a great story, this coin is for you. Crafted from 1 oz. Of 99.99% pure silver, this rectangular coin is a fun addition to any collection and makes a great gift. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. The reverse design by Canadian graphic design artist Patrick Belanger features the artist’s rendition of an aerial UFO phenomenon that occurred on November 7, 1990 in Montréal, Que. The colourful image shows the event from the perspective of those who spotted the object from the rooftop pool at the Hôtel Bonaventure Montréal. The object’s bright light beams are amplified by black light paint technology and an engineered Fresnel effect, which varies the intensity of reflected light depending on the viewing angle. The obverse features a field pattern and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. I clearly remember that night, when the whole family was watching a news story about an unidentified object in the Montréal sky, and it totally captured my attention. This coin design gave me an opportunity to marvel and recreate the energy I felt that evening, and it has rekindled my childhood fascination with UFOs. Patrick Belanger, Artist. This is my second project within the Canada’s Unexplained Phenomena series and I can truly say that these coins are among my favourites! The stories are mysterious and intriguing, and they will open your mind to the possibility that UFOs exist. Christa Bruce, Product Manager. The Place Bonaventure UFO was seen by dozens of witnesses as it seemed to hover over the hotel’s rooftop pool. Guests alerted hotel staff, including a security guard, who in turn called a newspaper reporter, all of whom said they watched the stationary object hanging in the sky, displaying an odd “clocklike” pattern of lights. Photos taken that night remain hotly disputed as to what they depict: A reflection of underwater pool lights? Spotlights on a nearby skyscraper? Even RCMP were mystified that night, and the incident is still regarded today as one of Canada’s most curious UFO cases. Chris Rutkowski, Science Writer. This was a fun design to model since I stayed at this hotel a few years after the Montréal Incident. Given the three-quarter perspective, I thought it would be wise to create concentric ovals radiating from the UFO and a Fresnel lens effect for the six beams of light-this helps reflect the light in a unique way. For the colour application, the challenge was to align the paint files with the many straight, hard lines in the design-buildings, windows, steps, pool deck and swimming pool-and this made for an interesting effect as the light beams can also be seen on the pool surface. Stan Witten, Senior Engraver. November 7, 1990, 7:20 p. A tourist was enjoying a relaxing swim in the rooftop pool of the Hôtel Bonaventure Montréal, when suddenly, green and yellow light beams emanating from a large, metallic object lit up the night sky. The woman alerted the lifeguard, who called the hotel’s security guard; soon, guests, hotel staff and management had gathered to view this anomalous aerial object, which continued to hover in place. When the light beams suddenly became brighter, police were called in. Baffled, the first officer on the scene contacted his superiors, and before long, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Canadian military and even NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) were reportedly looking into this strange object. Sometime after 10 p. Dense cloud cover obscured the view of the UFO, but photographs taken by a journalist provide compelling physical evidence of this unexplained phenomenon.

From start to finish, this EHR coin is designed to leave a lasting impression and it’s a fitting tribute to the titan of the Canadian prairies. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. On your coin’s reverse, Canadian artist Derek C. Wicks has created a striking three-quarter portrait of a bison that has a solemn expression as it gazes towards the right. Its unique features – the upturned horns, the muscled hump behind the shoulder – and the textural variations of its fur are all accentuated by the extraordinary high relief, which allows for a greater depth of engraved details. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The bison’s thick, rugged coat provided the perfect starting point for creating an extraordinarily high relief coin. With its many textural and directional changes, not only was it a welcome challenge to re-create, but it made for a very inspirational end result. Coin designs are traditionally modelled in bas relief, but for this one. I got to model the bison’s head in full 3D, right from the start. I worked with the Engineer and the Product Manager to determine the optimal viewing angle, one that plays up the relief height so that the bison practically pops off the coin. Ultimately, we chose a three-quarter view that, coupled with extraordinarily high relief, best conveys the bison’s enormous size while focusing in on its features. Eric Boyer, 3D Artist/Engraver. The bison is the largest and. Land animal in Canada. A male or bull stands tall at 2 metres high and can weigh more than a tonne! Its hump isn’t composed of fat – it’s all muscle, supported by vertebrae. That hump comes in handy in the winter, when the bison uses its head (and hump) to push snow out of its way. Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box. 99.99% pure silver. Wicks (reverse), Susanna Blunt (obverse).

2022 Mercury's Horned Face Discovering Dinosaurs #2 $20 1OZ Pure Silver Coin

2021 Death Reaper coin is here. More Dinosaurs of Canada. A follow-up to 2021′s. Mercury’s Horned Face or. Is the featured star of our second. Coin, and the first things you’ll notice about this ceratopsid are the bony, wing-like protrusions on its head. Engraved on the coin’s reverse, its skull fossil is especially striking against the black rhodium-plated “rock” background, which pays tribute to the discovery that yielded another piece of Canada’s prehistoric past. Coin #2: Meet a relative of. Imagine the excitement of unearthing a new prehistoric species! Coin places you in the field and at the site of another discovery. The black rhodium background represents the hidden or unknown past. This dark design element keeps the focus on the engraved fossils that have helped paleontologists piece together the story of prehistoric Canada. Like the tyrannosaur on the first coin, this horned dinosaur is a relative “newcomer”-the 76-million-year-old. Was unveiled in 2014 and has never appeared on a coin until now. The fossil depicted on your coin has been verified for scientific accuracy by the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. Beneath the rhodium plating on your coin’s reverse, the engraved texture represents the thrill of discovery: it resembles the rock formation in Alberta’s Dinosaur Provincial Park, where a. Skull fragment was found. FOR DINO LOVERS OF ALL AGES! Dinosaurs are a popular theme with collectors and Canadians of all ages. They’re also an important part of Canada’s natural heritage. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Designed by Canadian paleoartist Julius Csotonyi, the coin’s reverse features the fossilized skull of. A recently discovered horned dinosaur species. Beneath the black rhodium plating, the engraved texture represents the rock formation in Alberta’s Dinosaur Provincial Park where a key fossil fragment was found. The obverse also features rhodium plating behind the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. It’s always a thrill to illustrate the newest additions to Canada’s amazing diversity of ceratopsian (horned) dinosaurs, whose uniquely shaped neck shields functioned as visual signals. For Mercuriceratops, the challenge was to accurately portray the weird squamosal skull bone (resembling the mythical winged helmet of Mercury) while creatively rotating the skull so that the elongated head could fit within the circular rim of the coin! Julius Csotonyi, Paleoartist. Mercuriceratops is an example of a dinosaur species that’s known from a single bone only. Species of several groups of dinosaurs, like horned dinosaurs and duckbilled dinosaurs, are all very similar to each other and can often only be distinguished based on differences on one or a few bones. For example, duckbilled dinosaur species often only differ based on the shape of their crest. In horned dinosaurs, it’s often the shape of the bones forming the frill (shield behind the head) that allows paleontologists to recognize different species. In the case of Mercuriceratops, paleontologists found a bone of the frill that was unlike any that had ever been found for any other species. That’s how they knew they were dealing with a brand new species, even though they knew nothing else about the rest of the body. François Therrien, Curator of Dinosaur Palaeoecology, Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. Its unusual frill may look scary, but it likely helped. To attract a mate. Unveiled in 2014, this six-metre-long herbivore was described from near-identical skull fragments of two individuals-one recovered from Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta and the other from the Judith River Formation in Montana (United States)-hence the species name. Means Mercury’s horned face. It was named after Mercury, the Roman messenger to the gods, who is often depicted with wings on his helmet.

First new Enhanced elevation technique allows the focal point of the design to reach new heights thanks to the world’s first integrated hinge, which raises the relief above the coin’s surface. Rare prototype coin featuring the latest groundbreaking innovation from the Royal Canadian Mint’s R&D researchers. The latest innovation from our R&D lab raises the bar when it comes to dimensional design and allows the engraved focal point to reach new heights-literally. Introducing Lifted Engraving, a numismatic first that makes its world debut on this limited-edition prototype. The groundbreaking technology is a 3D approach to 2D coin art. It allows us to highlight a key design element by raising it above the engraved surface of the coin. To demonstrate its full potential, the never-before-seen technique has been applied to this 2020 pure silver version of the 1997 Flying Loon dollar. The loon you see lifting up from the coin’s surface is not an embellishment-it’s part of the coin. And so is the integrated hinge, which provides just the right amount of lift for our loon, and our new technology, to take flight on this prototype. How does it work? It’s all crafted from a single 99.99% pure silver blank and using the same minting process as a standard coin. The development of a new type of die makes it possible to strike the world’s first integrated hinge directly onto the coin’s surface. After deliberately cutting into the coin, the key relief (the loon) is then separated from the rest of the design using proprietary methods that “peel” away the field. And with both ends of the hinge coming together, the key relief is now in position to come out of the coin and greet the viewer.
