The 2016 1 oz Proof Silver Canadian Autumn Tranquility Coins feature a dazzling colorized image of a quiet and peaceful autumn day in a wooded area. You can even see the sun shining through the trees.
The reverse design was created by Tony Bianco. He created a design that gives the impression of great depth, because the foreground is surrounded by leaves that appear to jump off the coin’s surface. A bridge connects lands on both sides of a small stream and the sun is shining through the leaves of the trees in the background. The bridge and stream are not part of the colorized design, which makes them stand out on the coin.
The obverse of all Canadian coins feature the image of Queen Elizabeth II. This coin features a right-profile portrait of the Queen designed by Susanna Blunt, a Canadian artist, in 2003.
Each of these coins will come in a capsule with the classic maroon clamshell that the Royal Canadian Mint is known for. This packaging will help protect the coin. These coins will also come in themed boxes that give a larger view of the reverse design.
The Royal Canadian Mint makes all the currency in Canada and is considered one of the world’s foremost producers of gold and silver products. The mint was founded in 1908 in Ottawa, and a second facility opened in Winnipeg in the 1980s.
