Set sail for the New World

This 99.99% pure silver Canadian 20 dollar coin is the third and final issue in the hugely popular Norse Figureheads series.

This silver $20 coin, issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, is inspired by the intrepid voyages of the Vikings, who did what few European explorers at the time were brave enough to do - sail the open seas to new lands.

The coin features a familiar magnificent Viking dragon-headed longship sailing through ocean. Aboard, three Norse mariners sit in seemingly quiet contemplation. The image was designed by Neil Hamlin (note his initials on the coin's obverse). 

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. Look closely and you can obverse four Nordic runes set at the points of the compass - a tribute to the dauntless exploratory spirit of the Vikings.

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.
