2018 Canada $50 Whale's Tail Soapstone Sculpture Fine Silver Coin (No Tax)

Life above and below the waves is beautifully interconnected on this 5 oz. fine silver coin, where a humpback whale’s barrier-breaking gesture is re-created in sculptural form. Arching above the cool waters of Northern Canada, the soapstone carving of a whale’s tail makes each coin unique while capturing the magic of a brief encounter with an aquatic acrobat.

Special Features:
-
A SCULPTED PIECE OF COLLECTIBLE ART: A multi-dimensional, marine-themed showcase that pairs a traditional soapstone sculpture with cutting-edge finishing techniques.
-
HAND-CARVED CANADIAN SOAPSTONE: Rising up from the coin’s surface, the smoothly sculpted whale’s tail is hand-carved by Canadian artist Dave Zachary and his team of sculptors.
-
EACH ONE IS UNIQUE: Soapstone is known for its natural variation of colours and marbling, meaning no two tails - and no two coins - are exactly alike.
-
TRANSLUCENT ENAMEL OVER A PROOF FINISH gives the water its sparkling, Arctic-blue colour, while allowing a glimpse of the engraved whales swimming just below the surface; designed by Royal Canadian Mint engraver Cecily Mok.
-
A WIDE DIAMETER (65.25 mm) provides a large base for the soapstone sculpture and an abundance of space for finely rendered details.
-
DOME-LIKE CAPSULE helps protect your coin and the whale’s tail sculpture from the elements.

Packaging:
Wooden circular base with black beauty box.
