This low mintage $20 fine silver coin is the seventh in the extremely popular Group of Seven series, and celebrates the art of A.Y. Jackson. The coin is double struck in just over one ounce of pure silver, and features a near flawless proof finish.
This coin is an engraved recreation of A.Y. Jackson's famous work, Saint-Tite-des-Caps (1930). The moment in the wintry, snow-covered rolling landscape of the region is evident. The sleepy snow-capped houses that are central image of the coin's reverse. A single tree rises in the left portion of the foreground, while the houses are backed by a distant horizon of tall rolling hills and evergreens. In the sky above the clouds are dramatic sun rays. The image on the coin is framed with a polished band featuring the words "CANADA" and "A.J. Jackson", the date "2013", and the face value of "20 DOLLARS."
Alexander Young Jackson was the only member of the Group of Seven from Quebec, born in Montréal on October 3, 1882. His interest in art was triggered and he attended evening classes to hone his budding talent.
The Painting: Saint-Tite-des-Caps (1930)
The shores of the Lower St. Lawrence region is the inspiration of this painting. A dead tree graphically anchors the foreground. For most of the 1920s, Jackson returned to this region almost every year to capture the colour and texture in late winter and early spring.
