Autumn in Canada
Beginning in September, a blanket of orange, yellow, red, and deepest purple unfurls across Canada, beginning in the north and slowly making its way southward. Across the majestic Canadian Rockies, fields and forests of the prairies, maple stands of Ontario and Quebec, and woodlands of the Maritimes, the land takes on a warm golden glow. Those wandering Canada’s forests and trails may be lucky enough to happen upon a hidden treasure: the beauty of a silver waterfall nestled in autumn woods.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Tony Bianco features a striking autumn scene in a Canadian forest. In the foreground, clusters of golden-orange sugar maple leaves frame the right and left sides of the composition. In the background, a fast-rushing tiered waterfall—engraved directly into the silver—cascades down a sloping grey rock face carpeted in green moss and fallen maple leaves. The waterfall leads to an engraved silver brook rushing over a rock-strewn riverbed. At the top of the rock face, the tall tree trunks of a deciduous forest are lent mystical beauty through engraving that evokes the sun’s rays falling through a forest still densely canopied in early autumn. The design uses a combination of colour, the silver coin surface and engraving to create a homogenous and painterly image.
