2018 Canada $20 The Dragon's Sail - Norse Figureheads (TAX Exempt)

The remains of an 11th-century Norse settlement at L'Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site are an enduring connection to Canada's Viking past! The Viking Age comes to our shores on the reverse of this fine silver coin, where selective colour highlights the elaborate art and craftsmanship of the legendary seafaring Norsemen.

Special Features:
- SECOND COIN: Second coin in a continuing series that travels back to the Viking Age, to a time when the naval expertise of Norse seafarers left an imprint on history wherever their ships came ashore - including Canada's east coast.
- HISTORY AND ART INTERTWINED: A joint celebration of the artistry and naval craftsmanship that are at the heart of an early chapter in Canadian history - one that was only uncovered in the 1960s!
- VIKINGS IN CANADA: Each coin re-imagines Viking ships, as they likely appeared a millennium ago, when a Norse encampment was established on the site of L'Anse aux Meadows, N.L. - a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only authenticated Viking settlement in North America to date!
- COMPLEX AND COLOURFUL: Each coin features a reverse design that is as elaborate and intricate as the ship it depicts! The circular nature of the selectively coloured frame speaks to the timelessness of the Viking spirit, while the motif exemplifies the beauty of traditional Norse art.

Packaging:
Maroon clamshell with a standard black beauty box.
