New use of EHR technology! The Canadian Rockies rise to new heights on this pure silver coin. Order today!

Turquoise waters, snow-capped mountains and unparalleled alpine scenery—the beauty of Lake Louise is legendary, and this fine silver coin celebrates all the geographic elements that make it one of Canada’s great treasures! Never before has the Canadian landscape been rendered so realistically as on this coin’s reverse. Its design features an overhead view of the Lake Louise area, and while Extraordinarily High Relief (EHR) technology sends the Canadian Rockies soaring to new heights, beautiful Lake Louise is unmissable thanks to coloured enamel that highlights the crown jewel of Banff National Park.

A new RCM benchmark: This is the highest relief they’ve ever achieved on a 50 mm coin. Order this pure silver EHR coin today!

Special features:

  • AN RCM FIRST! This marks the first time Extraordinarily High Relief (EHR) has been applied to a 50 mm coin.
  • INNOVATIVE USE OF EHR TECHNOLOGY! For a more realistic rendering of the terrain, your coin’s reverse mixes sunken relief (Lake Louise) and EHR technology (Canadian Rockies) that adds extra height.
  • TURQUOISE “WATERS”! One of Canada’s most photogenic locations, Lake Louise is famous for its turquoise waters that are re-created here using translucent coloured enamel over engraved relief.
  • ANOTHER RCM FIRST: In addition to the EHR technology, the RCM was able to frost the top of the mountain peaks and glaciers to give them a silvery, snow-capped appearance
  • GEOGRAPHY ON BOTH SIDES! The geography theme extends to your coin’s obverse, which shares the same field pattern as the reverse’s outer rim. This pattern consists of contour lines that typically illustrate relief on a topographic map.
  • AN R&D INNOVATION! This mesmerizing combination of topographic mapping, EHR and selective enamelling is the product of close collaboration between RCM's engineering and engraving teams, who spared no effort in their attempt to create the most realistic rendering possible.
  • LOW MINTAGE! Only 3,000 are available to collectors and geography enthusiasts worldwide. Don’t miss out—order your coin today!
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.


Based on elevation modelling, your coin’s reverse features Extraordinary High Relief (EHR) technology that adds height to this realistic rendering of the terrain surrounding Lake Louise in Banff National Park (Alberta), in the Canadian Rockies. Glaciers and mountain peaks are frosted to create a silvery snow-capped effect. Lake Louise is struck incuse and filled in with translucent colour enamel that mimics its famous turquoise waters. Inspired by topographic maps, contour lines form a field pattern that frames the reverse and continues on the obverse, which features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

"It was a thrilling experience to see Lake Louise and the surrounding terrain come to life on a coin. Working alongside our R&D staff continues to be a privilege, and with new avenues to explore, there is never a dull moment!” – Matt Eggink, Product Manager, RCM

“Lake Louise, with its iconic turquoise waters, has captivated travellers in the Rocky Mountains since time immemorial. Today, Parks Canada welcomes visitors from around the world to take in the breathtaking glaciers and mountain landscapes, hike to incredible viewpoints, and share in the history of this unforgettable place.” - Rick Kubian, Field Unit Superintendent, Lake Louise, Yoho and Kootenay, Parks Canada

“Using satellite mapping data, we were able to translate the geography of the Lake Louise area into a 3D model—a first for us! Despite the technical challenges of creating height and rendering the mountain range in fine detail, the final product is truly a stunning and unique representation of Canadian geography.” - Ryan Poser, Engraver “The Lake Louise coin is another great innovation from the Royal Canadian Mint. We can appreciate the relief’s details of the mountains around Lake Louise area, which are located on multiple areas and non-centered on the coin, whereas for typical coins, the high relief area is centered. The maximum relief height for a typical 50mm diameter is 0.25mm while for this coin the maximum relief is more than 15 times higher! Another novelty is we were able to introduce real-life topographic satellite data in our design software in order to be able to manufacture the die as close as we can to replicate the real topography of the area on the coin.”

  • Yannick Cormier, Senior Research Engineer, R&D

Did you know?

  • Beginning in late spring, Victoria Glacier’s meltwater carries silt or rock flour (fine-grained particles of rock) into Lake Louise, where these particles stay suspended in the water—in fact, the lake’s vivid colour is caused by sunlight reflecting off these particles.
  • If you’re hoping to see those turquoise waters in person, you’ll want to time your visit carefully. A sunny day is best but the waters also need to have a high concentration of suspended rock flour particles. Peak time is July and August, when glacial run-off is at its highest; September and early October are also good times to visit, but the colour fades as the silt settles and meltwater tapers off.


Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
