2018 Canada $20 Norse Figureheads - Northern Fury Fine Silver (TAX Exempt)

From about AD 800 to 1050, they were the masters of the seas whose voyages defined trade, discovery and conquest in the Viking Age, and whose seafaring abilities led them to Canada's eastern shore. Step back in time with a three-coin series that re-imagines the elaborate figureheads at the prow of legendary Viking longships, which embodied Norse craftsmanship and maritime supremacy in their time.

Special Features:
- THE SHIPS THAT SAILED INTO HISTORY: This is the first in a three-coin series that re-visits the Viking Age, to a time when the naval expertise of Norse seafarers left an imprint on history wherever their ships came ashore - including Canada's east coast.
- HISTORY AND ART INTERTWINED: A joint celebration of the artistry and naval craftsmanship that are at the heart of an early chapter in Canadian history - one that was only uncovered in the 1960s!
- VIKINGS IN CANADA: Each coin re-imagines Viking ships, as they likely appeared a millennium ago, when a Norse encampment was established on the site of L'Anse aux Meadows, N.L. - a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only authenticated Viking settlement in North America.
- A COMPLEX DESIGN: Each coin features a reverse design that is as elaborate and intricate as the ship it depicts. Different frostings add nuance to the highly detailed engraving, while a selective application of colour accents the outer ring!
- A TIMELESS QUALITY: The circular nature of the frame speaks to the timelessness of the Viking spirit, while the knot-work exemplifies the beauty of traditional Norse art.

Maroon clamshell with a standard black beauty box
