2018 Canada $20 Geometric Fauna - Orcas Fine Silver (TAX Exempt)

The black-and-white orca (Orcinus orca) is a sight to behold in our coastal waters, where a sleek dorsal fin breaching the ocean's surface is the first sign of its presence. The third (and final) coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s Geometric Fauna series travels to Canada's West Coast to witness an orca bursting through the barrier that separates our worlds, and ultimately breaking free of its geometric form.

Special Features:
- THIRD AND FINAL COIN IN A SERIES: The first Geometric Fauna coin (The Grey Wolf) featured an icon of our forests, and the second coin (Snowy Owl) took to the skies; To complete the series, this THIRD coin ventures out to sea for a contemporary twist on a wildlife portrait - one that merges a realistic depiction with an art style based on pure geometry.
- CALCULATED CRAFTSMANSHIP: Each of these beloved icons of the Canadian wilderness is comprised of carefully positioned polygon shapes that are characteristic of low poly art, before merging with a more true-to-life depiction.
- A VARIETY OF FINISHES: Precisely engraved to ensure crisp lines, each polygon shape is set apart by different finishing techniques that mimic light and shadows, which adds yet another realistic touch to the stylized image.
- LAVISH COLOUR: The effect of golden sunlight splashing across the coastal landscape is brought to life by an outstanding application of bold colours over precision-engraved relief - a combination that effectively transforms a flat image into a multi-layered work of art.
- COLLECT ALL 3 FOR A COMPLETE SET! Throughout the series, a "shattering" effect marks the transition between stylized and realistic art while adding an awe-inspiring sense of movement, as each animal breaks free of its geometric constraints.
- LIMITED EDITION: Each coin has a limited Mintage: of just 6,000.

Packaging:
Maroon clamshell with graphic beauty box.
