Canadian Mosaics Coin Series
Canadian Mosaics Coin Innovation
The first coin of the Canadian Mosaics coin series is now out. The next two will follow shortly. The series will consist of three coins that each feature a different animal associated with Canada.
The Canadian Mosaics coin series uses a new innovation in coin making. The colors have varying translucency that fit together to form the image. This gives the impression of mosaic tile. The image involves different colors separated by silver lines. The mosaic appearance covers the entire reverse of each coin, except for the rim.
The metal used for this series of coins is fine silver.

The Subjects of the Coins
The caribou, grizzly, and cougar are all repeating subjects on Canadian coins. They represent the animals indigenous to Canada. While other animals such as the wolf are also indigenous to Canada, the choice of these three is an excellent choice.
