The Royal Canadian Mint’s O Canada collection was created to honor all things Canadian. The 1 oz Proof collection features five iconic Canadian images in .9999 pure silver. Canadian artist Kendra Dixson designed the 2014 1 oz Proof Canadian Scenic Skiing in Canada Silver Coins, featuring a skier on a snowy winter wonderland scene.
The coins in this listing have a brilliant proof finish. To help you proudly display your proof coins, the Royal Canadian Mint includes its iconic maroon clamshell display box, as well as a Certificate of Authenticity with an individual serial number that tells you exactly when the coin was struck during the process.
A gorgeous scene of snow-capped mountains and conifer trees surround a downhill skier as he makes his way down a snowy mountainside is featured on the reverse side of each coin. While Canadians are especially fond of downhill skiing, the sport is said to date all the way back to 4500 B.C.E. The Scandinavians are credited with creating the sport. On this face of the coin, you will also find the country of mint and face value of the coin.
On the obverse of each coin, you will find the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. In this familiar portrait, a warm expression graces her face as she stares off the right side of the coin. Her name and “D.G. Regina,” which means “By the Grace of God, Queen,” are featured on this side of the coin.
