Quite a steep premium for less than $320 in silver.


Given the format and topic I would pay the premium if the execution was well done.

Pierre Leduc's 2016 silver 1/2kg Roaring Grizzly in my opinion is 1/2kg perfection with his execution given the topic.

This should have been a home-run for the mint.

You make a solid suggestion-
RCM should be appealing to new younger artist for designs - gotta shake it up.

I know, right? I mean just by looking at the intricacy of the design most people would know it would not work well on a coin. Maybe CNC on wood or metal with differing color back rounds to separate the clouds so you know what your actually looking at.

My question is now, does the mint actually go through somewhat of a internal tribunal proposal process to offer designs before approval?

If they do, and this is what was selected, I fear for the future of large canvas coins.

If they don't, then who approves the design at the mint before manufacturing? I believe someone isn't speaking up at the approval process because the design flaws for this coin is just too obvious to me, the potential buyer.
Maybe they just take what they get offered for an image. Which would be a real disappointment.

Oh well.

Yes...it's definitely a design that did not transfer well onto the large coin...and yes that would be unfortunate going forward if they just take on patterns without more evaluation.
