2016 $20 The Beaver: Geometry In Art Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt) 151004

As digital artists seek to recreate the physical world through dimensional images, modelling techniques based on geometric shapes have spawned an innovative new visual style: low poly art. This final coin in the five-coin Geometry in Art series utilizes the low poly art style to present a contemporary re-interpretation of a profoundly historic Canadian symbol: the beaver (Castor canadensis).

Special Features:
- Fourth coin in the Geometry in Art series, which reinterprets familiar Canadian emblems in the low poly art style that originated in the video game industry.
- Exceptional engraving, relief and the application of different finishing techniques add distinctiveness to the polygon shapes that form the stylized image of two beavers in the wild.
- In keeping with the low poly art style, vibrant colours create a perception of depth and shadows while the palette captures the brightness of a summer day in the Canadian wilderness.
- Crafted in 99.99% pure silver with a low mintage set to only 7,500 worldwide.
- A conversation-starter for anyone with an interest in art and dimensional modelling techniques, particularly those used in Canada's thriving video game development industry.
