The 2017 1 oz Proof Silver Canadian Weather Phenomenon Fiery Sky Coin from the Royal Canadian Mint captures three different moments during sunset. Using special invisible colored inks, the mint has created a coin with three different layers of color.
With a black light, which is included in your purchase, you will see an intense sunset with the sun peeking between two mountains before it sets. The sky a mix of purple and pink, but as you look near the sun, fiery reds and oranges appear. The water reflects all these colors to make a vibrant image on this silver coin.
Under normal lighting, the coin still feature those same bright colors in the sky, but the sun has slipped past the mountains and is about to disappear for the night. The water reflects the sky, but without the sun, the water is darker.
After the coin is exposed to light for a while, you can take it into a dark room and watch it glow. The glow-in-the-dark version of the reverse side of this coin shows the moon rising behind the mountains. The coin will glow a turquoise color.
