A 99.99% pure silver Canadian 20 dollar coin featuring a Viking longship is a must-have for history fans

This silver $20 coin, issued by The Royal Canadian Mint, features a magnificent Viking dragon-headed longship (drakkar) cutting through the choppy ocean waters on its way to new lands. The image was designed by Patrick Belanger (note his initials on the coin's obverse). 

In the foreground lies a close-up of the intricately carved dragon figurehead, inlaid with complex traditional knotwork and authentic wood-like texture. 

Around the edge of the coin, selective colouring and more complex knotwork distinguish the coin as both a work of art and a fascinating glimpse of history.

The reverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Susanna Blunt. It also reads CANADA, D.G REGINA, 20 DOLLARS, and ELIZABETH II around the rim. 

Packaging

Your coin is presented in a Royal Canadian Mint maroon clamshell case, with a black beauty box.
