Rare prototype coin featuring the latest groundbreaking innovation from the Royal Canadian Mints R&D researchers.
The latest innovation from our R&D lab raises the bar when it comes to dimensional design and allows the engraved focal point to reach new heightsliterally. Introducing Lifted Engraving, a numismatic first that makes its world debut on this limited-edition prototype. The groundbreaking technology is a 3D approach to 2D coin art.
It allows us to highlight a key design element by raising it above the engraved surface of the coin. To demonstrate its full potential, the never-before-seen technique has been applied to this 2020 pure silver version of the 1997 Flying Loon dollar. The loon you see lifting up from the coins surface is not an embellishmentits part of the coin. And so is the integrated hinge, which provides just the right amount of lift for our loon, and our new technology, to take flight on this prototype.Its all crafted from a single 99.99% pure silver blank and using the same minting process as a standard coin. The development of a new type of die makes it possible to strike the worlds first integrated hinge directly onto the coins surface. After deliberately cutting into the coin, the key relief (the loon) is then separated from the rest of the design using proprietary methods that peel away the field. And with both ends of the hinge coming together, the key relief is now in position to come out of the coin and greet the viewer. The item "2020 2 oz.
