Canada is home to rich and diverse wildlife. Beyond the incredible animals that call the shores of Canada home, there is an incredible bounty to be found off the coastlines. The waters off of Canada are home to an amazing selection of creatures, including the humpback whale, which can often be found feeding in the icy waters off of Canada. The humpback whale often breaches the surface of the water, launching two thirds or more of their huge bodies up and out of the water, then splashing back down into the water on their backs. The 2017 Proof Canadian 3-D Breaching Whale 1 oz Silver Coin depicts an adult whale engaging in the characteristic behavior. These 3D coins contain 1 Troy oz of .9999 pure silver, which makes them highly prized by collectors.
The humpback whale is one of the larger whales in the baleen whale species. It has a distinctive stocky shape to its body, with a knobbly head and long pectoral fins. The humpback whale has a reputation for breaching the chilly waters that they live in, which makes this whale a popular choice for whale watchers to seek out.
The 2017 Proof Canadian 3-D Breaching Whale 1 oz Silver Coin was a groundbreaking coin design. Imagined by Matt Bowen, the humpback whale featured on the coin is a combination of vibrant colors, natures raw beauty and a combination of techniques that result in a lovely 3D finish.
The obverse design of the 2017 Proof Canadian 3-D Breaching Whale 1 oz Silver Coin features the right-profile effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This image was designed by Susanna Blunt in 2004 and has been used on Canadian coinage since 2004. The words Elizabeth II and D.G. Regina are engraved on the obverse of the coin.
The reverse design of the 2017 Proof Canadian 3-D Breaching Whale 1 oz Silver Coin features a beautiful image of a humpback whale launching itself out of the frigid waters off of the Canadian coast. The colorized image appears to show the whale coming up from the surface of the coin. The 3D effect on this coin is achieved through a combination of printing and embossing techniques employed by the Royal Canadian Mint. The result adds incredible dimension to the coin.
The Royal Canadian Mint has a well-earned reputation for producing coins that are unique, interesting and speak to the rich history and diversity of Canada. The mint was established in 1908 in Ottawa, and today includes a facility in Winnipeg.
