I agree. Also, the mountains around lake Louise are never silver; should be green.

Since the last 2 UFO coins have been released in October, it is a safe bet we will see one next month.

I caved today and bought the Lake Louise EHR coin.

I have taught field school (2nd year geology) in those mountains and have run field trips from international conferences in Calgary to the Columbia icefields. So there is a sentimental attachment for this coin.

Welcome to the dark side @SPP

I do understand the appeal and have hiked extensively in Banff & Jasper national parks when lived in Calgary and now in the coastal ranges as I live in Greater Vancouver.

One thing that this coin shows in stark relief is the ratio of height to footprint. As tall and majestic as the mountains appear, they are not that high relative to area. I once read that were the earth to be reduced to the size of a pool or snooker ball, even with the range from the Marianas to Everest, the earth would be as smooth as a pool ball and that most maps or globes that exhibit relief really exaggerate height/depth relative to area. I know that you shouldn't believe everything you read but the numbers seem right from a project I undertook a bunch of years ago to come up with a 3-D map of Whistler Blackcomb. Without vertical scale exaggeration, it was quite un-impressive at a 15cm square footprint. Same for the Georgia basin/Salish Sea even though parts of Jervis Inlet reach 670m in depth.

On the flip side... I bought a graded 1917-C Sovereign on the weekend.
