2012 Canada $20 Group of Seven - F.H. Varley (#1) Silver (No Tax)

Stormy Weather, Georgian Bay (1921), by F.H. Varley

The reverse of this fine silver 1-ounce coin features a finely wrought engraved detail from Varley's iconic painting. Taking a dramatic vantage point high atop a bluff overlooking the white-capped waters of Georgian Bay and vast cloud-filled horizon beyond, the image centres on a single wind-swept Jack Pine poised grippingly on a cliff above the Bay. Though rendered in silver, each sweeping brushstroke of Varley's masterful depiction of this open, blustery North Ontarian landscape has been skilfully rendered in dimensional detail, from the writhing texture of the barren tree, the smooth stones of the rocky cliff, and the frothing white caps of the massive lake below, to the powerful, churning sky above and beyond the lake. Framing this detail from Varley's painting is a smooth brilliant-finish ring embossed with the words '20 DOLLARS,' 'CANADA,' '2012,' and 'F.H. VARLEY.'
