The Vitruvian Man is a drawing made by Leonardo da Vinci in 1490 accompanied by notes based on the work of the Roman architect Vitruvius. The drawing depicts a man in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and inscribed in a circle and square. It represents da Vinci’s concept of the ideal human body proportions and is kept in the Galleria dell’Accademia, in Venice, Italy.

Let’s talk about a much more modern invention done by Wilhelm Röntgen in 1895 – the X-rays. He discovered their medical use when he made a picture of his wife’s hand on a photographic plate formed due to X-rays. The photograph of his wife’s hand was the first photograph of a human body part using X-rays.

Both works have advanced the understanding of the human body by leaps and bounds. CIT now takes this historic artwork of da Vinci and combines it with the essential modern invention of Röntgen. The result is a 1 oz silver Proof mixing both ages in one coin! This shocking looking coin combines some of the best of minting technology and colorization to create a one-of-a-kind piece.

Discover the Vitruvian Man in ultra high relief surrounded by historical sketches and notes on the reverse and his colorized X-ray image on the obverse. There will only be 999 of these amazing Proofs struck.

Get yours and hold 400 years of history in your hand!

A precious gift from nature, the pearl represents purity, balance and joy. June's shimmering birthstone exudes elegance and sophistication, which makes it a long-standing symbol of wealth and social standing. Flanked by three smaller Swarovski® crystals and surrounded by a Celtic art-inspired design, the colourful Swarovski® crystal at the centre is a token of good fortune—not just in your birthday month, but for the whole year. And with the help of a bezel kit (not included), your coin will easily become a cherished piece of jewellery that expresses who you are.

The reverse design by artist Pandora Young is an intersection of art and mathematics, and features a stylized pattern arranged according to the base-six system. Inspired by the Celtic triskele, the engraved art incorporates three clear Swarovski® crystals into our birthstone celebration of those born in May ( emerald), as represented by the gem-like Swarovski® crystal at the centre of the coin. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
"Emerald" is from the Greek word smaragdus, meaning "green."

The coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
