Mint Condition as Pictured (Coin Has Sun Toning) with Original Packaging and Certificate of Authenticity. Seeing the Northern Lights (also known as the Aurora Borealis) in person is something that is likely at the top of many bucket lists.This should come as no surprise, when one considers the immense ethereal beauty that lights up the sky with a dazzling fire-show of colours. The Northern Lights are caused by solar wind, and though the earth possesses an insulating armour to deflect solar particles, some of these particles do get trapped, and they bring about huge amounts of electricity. As these electrical currents move towards the planet, the magnetic field drags them toward the polar regions where they fuse with the nitrogen and oxygen in the atmosphere, and illuminate the sky with the glowing waves of colour we can see with our naked eyes. Canadian artist Nathalie Bertin has created a beautifully symbolic image of the Aurora Borealis splashed across the sky; the colour show is magnificently depicted by a hologram inlaid into the coin that winds itself in waves to symbolize a wolf's howl. The combination of the Northern Lights and the howling wolf paint an almost chillingly-lifelike depiction of the Northern landscape.
This dazzling coin is the second in the Northern Lights series, and is struck in over one troy ounce of fine silver. The bright metal is symbolic of the wintery landscape of the North, and is a perfect backdrop for the multicoloured hologram.
This coin is sure to be a smashing success as a gift for any sky-gazer or nature lover you know; it will also make a unique and artful addition to any collection of fine silver coins. That is the magic of the northern lights, and if you've ever experienced them firsthand, you know this incredible phenomenon is really beyond words; shimmering waves of light that can leave you breathless.
And if you've never seen the northern lights, the captivating colours on this pure silver hologram coin might just inspire you to venture north to watch them live. Out there, standing in the dark, Earth's great lightshow may take on a whole new dimension if the shimmering ribbons of light are accompanied by the sound of howling wolves. It's one of the most hauntingly beautiful experiences that the wilderness has to offer; a spectacle so mystifying that generations of sky gazers, adventurers and nature lovers have ventured into the darkness, and long pondered if wolves do indeed howl at the light. At night, in the dead of winter, light and sound travel much farther, aided by the clear, crisp air. If there's more light, wolves can also be more active; and as their pack disperses in search of food, they will be calling to each other.Their howls will be amplified by the clear, crisp air, just like the northern lights; and the result for the lucky viewer is a hauntingly beautiful symphony of colour and sound. Second in the series of beautiful hologram coins!
