RCM Celebrates 75th Anniversary Of Royal Winnipeg Ballet

75th Anniversary Of Royal Winnipeg Ballet I am not a big fan of colorized coins mostly because they remind me of the shoddy colorized 50 State Quarters® that were sold at absorbent prices to unknowing citizens. However, this recent announcement by the Royal Canadian Mint caught my attention. To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Royal Canadian Mint is issuing a colourful tribute to the organization's rich artistic legacy in the form of a $20 silver coin. Maybe, subconsciously, it's due to my love of the classical arts, but there is something special about this coin that jumped out of the monitor at me.

You can click on the image above to view a high definition, full-color picture of this coin. According to the press release from the Royal Canadian Mint, "The coin's reverse image is an engraved rendition of a photograph by one of Canada's foremost dance photographers, David Cooper. Advanced 'sheer effect' colour faithfully recreates the stunning costumes worn by the dancers and further showcases the beautiful embellishments that adorn their traditional platter tutus." I just may buy one for my own collection to see this new technique that the Canadian Mint is using. The $20 fine silver coin is limited to a mintage of 7,500 and retails for $114.95. It can be pre-ordered by contacting the RCM at 1-800-267-1871 in Canada, 1-800-268-6468 in the US, or on the Internet at www.mint.ca.

The Israeli Promised Land Dream – The Criminal Roadmap Towards “Greater Israel”?

Felicity Arbuthnot writes: The concept of a “Greater Israel” according to the founding father of Zionism Theodore Herzl, is a Jewish State stretching “’From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.’ Rabbi Fischmann, of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, stated to the UN Special Committee on 9th July 1947 that: The Promised Land extends from […]
