WORLD'S FIRST COIN WITH PLASMA EFFECT!
The Royal Canadian Mint has released a $20 silver IPY coin.
This coin pays tribute to the visionary scientists who established an international collaboration to study the earth's polar regions 125 years ago, an initiative inspired by the arrival of the first English explorer in the Arctic three centuries prior. To underscore this timely theme, this special-edition coin is being issued with a plasma effect from the cutting edge of minting. Only 7,000 coins have been treated with this remarkable technique to create the blue hues and capture the frigid essence of the Arctic as represented on this coin.
For more details and to order the coin please see the Canadian Mint websitewww.mint.ca
