2013 Canada $20 Group of Seven - J.E.H. Macdonald (TAX Exempt)

Sumacs by J.E.H. MacDonald

This $20 silver coin is 99.99% fine silver with a weight of 31.39 grams and a diameter of 38 millimetres. The reverse features an engraved adaptation of J.E.H. Macdonald's famous work, Sumacs-actually one of four decorative panels representing the four seasons that Macdonald was commissioned to paint for art patron James MacCallum.

Characteristic of the graphic, curvaceous figures Macdonald used for the entire series, the flat imagery in Sumacs was common for decorative art in this period. This detail illustrates the robust texture of the original work, which used intense pigmentation to evoke the ruddy autumnal haze of sumacs in the fall. The image is framed with a polished band featuring the words 'CANADA' and 'J.E.H. MACDONALD,' the date '2013,' and the face value of '20 DOLLARS.' The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
