The multifaceted lynx head by Canadian artist Traian Georgescu is the final of a 3-coin series featuring the innovative use of extraordinarily high relief (EHR). EHR goes beyond what high and even ultra-high relief techniques can accomplish and elevates the subject matter to around 6 mm. The striking visual effect of a coin that becomes more of a sculpture than a simple embossing is given an exceptional brilliance with innovative proof finish, making the silver shine like never before. This coin, featuring a multifaceted design built out of 435 polygons that are crafted in proof finish to make them sparkle like a diamond, really is an important advancement in minting. You won’t be able to take your eyes off your “extra” high relief, pure silver coin! FINAL COIN IN A THREE COIN SERIES! Every coin features an animal head (wolf, bear, and lynx) in a new multifaceted EHR minting technique. INNOVATIVE WORLD FIRST COINING TECHNOLOGY! The Lynx Head features an ingenious approach to coin design. This third issue in the 3-coin series is the third proof-quality coins struck with extraordinarily high relief (EHR)a new term in the world of minting. EHR is defined by an impressive relief that reaches to around 6 millimetres on a coin of only 36 millimetres in diameter and 1 oz. Ultra-high relief coins barely reach 2 millimetres of height and standard relief coins remain almost flat in comparison. The Lynx Head’s multiple facets, composed of 435 polygons, are crafted in proof finish to reflect light from various angles. The result is a coin that sparkles like a diamond. The highest quality proof finish combined with the EHR technique gives it an unequaled brilliance and sharpness, making it a world first coin of its kind. A lightly frosted background accentuates the sparkle of the central main design, giving its already dazzling subject even more emphasis. On the obverse, multiple light-relief facets provide similar luminous, reflective effect. A DESIGN LIKE NO OTHER! Thanks to the ingenious EHR technology, the lynx head coin design is no longer just an embossing, it is a sculpture built upon your coin. The Canada Lynx is a remarkable animal that cat lovers can’t help but adore. It looks like your beloved feline pet, but bigger and with prominent ear tufts.
