2022 Birds in Shadow Box Silver Coin | Royal Canadian Mint
Buy with Confidence
The shadow box is a timeless artform, one that draws you in by layering shapes to create a beautiful and familiar scene — like the one featured on the 2022 From The R&D Lab coin from the Royal Canadian Mint. Building on the multilayered concept introduced in 2019, the latest minting innovation from the Mint’s R&D Lab is a prototype shadow box coin that pushes the boundaries of dimensional engraving even further. The coin’s reverse takes the 2019 Birds in the Backyard design and breaks it down into four distinct layers of art. By spacing out and superimposing these layers, the arrangement forms a richer, more complex scene with unparalleled depth, detail and realism, and it was all made possible by the Mint’s dedicated R&D team.
- Multiple viewings are required to fully appreciate all the details. While the layers have been spaced out and superimposed to create a floating image effect, and overlapping portions to obscure some design elements that only reveal themselves when viewed from a different angle.
- One of the Mint’s most popular collector series, From the R&D Lab coins represent an initial test run for never-before-seen technology. These extremely rare coins always sell out quickly, and for 2023, only 252 were minted.
- Each prototype shadow box coin comes packaged in an exclusive R&D Lab wooden box with a special certificate.
