2015 Canada $20 The Great Lakes: Lake Michigan Fine Silver (No Tax)

Formed by powerful forces of time and geology, the amazing Great Lakes form a vast, continuously flowing waterway system that links central North America to the Atlantic. This system holds about one-fifth of the planet's fresh water, its lakes are so large that they are visible from space. The fourth coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's exciting series of fine silver enamelled coins featuring the amazing Great Lakes highlights lovely Lake Michigan.

The reverse image features an interpretation of a bathymetry map of Lake Michigan replicated by Royal Canadian Mint engravers and is highlighted with translucent blue enamel. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
