Light Technologically Enhanced Effect and the canadian storms
The application of unique colour technology allows for the breathtaking recreation of nature’s most electrifying light show, all in a one-of-a-kind collectible. Includes a black light! The artistry of the reverse can be appreciated in any light, but viewing it under a black light (included) activates the special technology that adds an intense vibrancy to the lightning bolts.
Canada's “lightning capitals” include both Windsor, Ontario (which holds the record for the most days of lightning in one year: 47 days in 2006) and Estevan, Saskatchewan.
In Canada, thunderstorms are most common in the interior provinces and much less frequent in the country's three coastal regions: Pacific, Atlantic, and Arctic. As an example, Toronto, Ontario recorded more than 15,000 lightning flashes between 1999 and 2008, compared to Vancouver, British Columbia, which recorded just over 100 in the same time frame.
Canada's thunderstorm hot zones include the Rocky Mountain foothills of Alberta, southern Saskatchewan, southern Manitoba, and Ontario.
Thunderstorms in Canada occur primarily in June, July, and August. During these summer months, lightning flashes every 3 seconds.
On average, Canada experiences more than 2 million lightning flashes annually.

The reverse image by Canadian artists Tony Bianco and Arnold Nogy presents a stormy natural landscape. A lone eastern white pine, shaped by steady winds, rises from a small rocky island in Ontario’s Georgian Bay. In the distance, stylized forests cower under a stormy sky that seems to glow with energy as Mother Nature unleashes her power. Viewing the reverse under a black light (included) activates the coin’s specialized technology, allowing the lightning bolts to radiate across the sky with a stunning life-like intensity and exceptional luminosity.
