A symbol of majesty and might, the lion makes its Canadian debut on a pure silver coin that is fully gold-plated to give it a golden-hour glow.

Each coin is accompanied by a special insert that features a printed reproduction of the original painting, along with the artist’s description of his work and his signature. To re-create the realistic art style, we’ve had to combine a multitude of finely etched details with different frostings that alter the way each element shines in the light. The finished product is a collectible piece of art—one that pays tribute to the artist’s legacy and ability to immerse us in a natural world that extends beyond national boundaries.

Design:

Stepping into the golden glow of early morning light, the king of the jungle greets the day with a roar in this engraved rendering of Into the Light – Lion, an original acrylic-on-canvas painting by Canadian wildlife artist Robert Bateman.

Each coin is packaged with an insert card that features a printed reproduction of the original painting, along with the artist’s description of his work and his signature.

“It is early morning in the Ngorongoro Crater. Although this is Africa, the high elevation brings very cold nights and misty mornings. The solitary lion is plodding his way slowly through the dewy vegetation. There is no particularly comfortable place to lie down, and there are no prospects for an easy hunt. A lone male is not a successful hunting machine. Lions are communal and cooperative. Hunting involves strategy and teamwork. Moreover, the team, or pride, is mostly made up of lionesses. Big males are more imposing and powerful, but they are not usually as quick and collaborative. Their role in lion society is to defend territory against rival lions and other predators such as leopards and hyenas. This big fellow is in his prime or perhaps just past it. Maybe he has lost his pride to a younger male. As he steps out into the sunlight of the rapidly warming morning, he is still confident and king of all that he surveys. It is perhaps lucky that he cannot foretell the future.” Robert Bateman, Artist
