2019 Canada $50 Rose of the Winds Fine Silver

The Rose of the Winds connects explorers past and present and it is a fixture on antique compasses, maps, and even modern navigational systems. It is a centuries-old symbol of exploration and it is a reminder of an individual's "True North" lies.

This ancient symbol is the focus of this 2019 $50 Rose of the Winds Fine Silver Coin. Designed by Pandora Young, it combines a number of cartography elements that are intricately casted. A welcome addition to your collection if you're looking for coins with vintage designs.

A fixture on antique maps, compasses, and even modern navigational systems, the Rose of the Winds connects explorers past and present. It is a centuries-old symbol of exploration that suggests a world of possibilities in every direction—and a reminder of where a person's "True north" lies. The immovable marker is the star of this coin's complex design, which could only be brought to life by high intricacy casting. Surrounded by vintage map art elements, our elaborate compass rose features fixed points for every cardinal direction, and for the winds that have led seafarers since ancient times. It is a look back at the romance of exploration in an era when terra incognita still appeared on nautical charts — a time when our sense of wonder was greater than our scientific understanding.
