About the Artist
The artwork on the reverse of this coin is the product of renowned Canadian artist Robert Bateman. Bateman specializes in capturing the natural and nature-inspired scene in what he considers, ‘a labour of love’. Wildlife animals are typical subjects of his work and he strives to represent them in as natural a form as possible, which is why they are often seen in their natural habitats.
The original work reflected on the coin is entitled ‘Into the Light – Lion’ and captures a scene in nature in which a lion struts, mouth agape as if in mid-roar’ in the savannah just at the break of dawn. On the original painting, the clear blue sky is a backdrop against which the goldish brown of the lion and the savannah grass are set. An autographed insert card depicting this piece is also included in your package when you purchase the coin.
The Coin in Detail
On the reverse of the coin, the artist Robert Bateman’s exquisite rendering of the lion in its natural habitat pulls you into the marvelous world of Mother Nature where strength, dominion, and survival stand above all else. The beauty of the majestic regal cat is undeniable as it stands amidst brown grass looking outward as if surveying prey in the distance. As the observer, invited to witness this spectacular scene you benefit from the vantage point just to the side in front of the lion which means you get to see the king of the jungle in profile but also in approach.
The outline and details have carefully and neatly engraved into the body of the 10oz 99.99% silver coin which is coated in rich gold adding regality to the piece. No better plating could have been selected as the gold is reflective of the hues used in the original artwork to represent the lion and the grasslands in which it stands. Gold also enhances the beauty of the entire presentation. To top it all off Robert Bateman’s signature is etched into the coin (which means you’ll have this world-famous artist’s signature twice! Once on the inset and now on the coin!).
The coin carries a face value of 100 dollars and is enhanced by proof finishing. It has serrated edges, weighs 311.54 grams and has a diameter of 76.25 millimetres. The reverse depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the second as crafted by Susanna Blunt.
