Multifaceted Animal Head Series: 1 oz. Pure Silver Extraordinarily-High Relief Coin. Extraordinarily-high relief (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 each coin in your series 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 features a multifaceted design built out of 498 polygons crafted in proof finish to make the coin sparkle like a diamond. INNOVATIVE WORLD FIRST COINING TECHNOLOGY! Each coin features an ingenious approach to coin design. These are the first proof-quality coin struck with EHR. A new term in the world of minting. EHR is defined by an impressive relief that reaches to around 6 millimeters on a coin of only 36 millimeters in diameter and 1 oz. Ultra-High Relief coins barely reach 2 mm of height and standard relief coins remain almost flat in comparison. Each coin’s multiple facets, composed of 498 polygons are crafted in proof finish to reflect light from various angles. The result is that each coin 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. The exceptional three-dimensionality of EHR allows each animal head to elevate mere embossing to a sculpture of each animal head. The relief is so extreme and pronounced that the modeling and tooling work had to be approached in an unorthodox manner. The engravers had to adapt their normal coin modeling procedures, CNC machining strategies and tool polishing methods to accommodate such an extreme relief. Unlike any other, each multifaceted animal head feels alive. The innovative EHR technology transforms the imprint into an actual model. Each coin limited to 2,500 coins worldwide. Each coin is crafted from one ounce of 99.99% pure silver and is 35mm in diameter and about 6mm thick. Did you know that. The grizzly bear is Canadas second largest carnivore. It is easily one of the most iconic animals on Canadian soil. On one hand, the grizzly is oft linked to danger, and its name sounds awfully close to the adjective grisly. On the other, this bear remains a highly respected symbol of the nations nature and culture. It is synonymous with strength, confidence, leadership, rest and quietude. Bears are known to be particularly intelligent and resourceful beasts. They work hard for their food and the well-being of their cubs, but they also rest hard. Symbolic of signature Canadian winters, the grizzly can hibernate for up to seven months in our snowy landscape.
