2015 Canada $20 Ice Dancer Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt)

It’s the dream of thousands of Canadian children; to twirl gracefully across the ice as the world watches in awe. In Canada, where indoor rinks are available year-round and outdoor skating is a favourite winter activity, this dream is especially vivid. The Royal Canadian Mint proudly celebrates this special moment with a beautifully painted and engraved fine silver coin featuring an original painting by Canadian artist Douglas R. Laird.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Douglas R. Laird features a full-colour painted and engraved scene of a family skating on a frozen pond. Based on an original painting by Laird, the design centres on a mother, father, son, and daughter attired in outdoor clothing, laced into their skates, and accompanied by two dogs. Standing on a frozen pond with a tree-lined residential area and bridge visible in the background, the mother, father, and boy watch the young girl raise her arms like a graceful figure skater. The young boy holds his hockey stick as he watches his sister. Large snowflakes fall gently around the family.
