They are synonymous, inseparable, forever united—two icons that are deeply woven into the fabric of our nation. The inspiring words of O Canada and the familiar sight of Canada’s national flag are inextricably linked on this fine silver coin, whose text-based design was made possible by the use of micro-sized letters.
Words become art on the reverse by Tony Bianco, where a luminous proof finish highlights the engraved outline of Canada’s national flag as it flaps in the breeze. Upon closer inspection, the iconic red bands and 11-point maple leaf are shaped by the English and French lyrics to O Canada; this colourful, text- based rendering was made possible by the use of coloured micro-sized letters, which ensures every letter is defined in spite of its diminutive size.
WHEN WORDS BECOME ART: Two of Canada’s most powerful expressions of national identity and pride become one on the reverse, where the flag illustrates the anthem and the anthem illustrates the flag.
THE COLOURED MICRO-SIZED LYRICS to O Canada re- create the distinctive red shapes that define Canada’s flag.
NO SMALL FEAT OF ENGINEERING : When viewed under a magnifying glass (not included), every letter is defined to ensure an impossibly clean look, all in patriotic red.
AN OUNCE OF CANADIAN PRIDE: A timeless keepsake, this fine silver coin is a beautiful expression of patriotic pride and a love for Canada that radiates from within your collection.
