This unique coin pays specific tribute to the rich writing career of renowned Canadian author Alice Munro. Hailed as "the master of the contemporary short story", she won the 2013 Nobel Prize for literature, making her the first Canadian woman to win the award in that category. Known for her nuanced and subtle non-linear story-telling and for often setting her characters into Huron County landscapes, Munro is considered a Canadian literary treasure, supported by three-fold Governor General Awards. This coin celebrates her achievements with the use of fascinating advanced engraving technology that allows for the use of micro-text. A magnifying glass will reveal the following passage from her recent short story, The View from Castle Rock: And in one of these houses-I can't remember whose-a magic doorstop, a big mother-of-pearl seashell that I recognized as a messenger from near and far, because I could hold it to my ear-when nobody was there to stop me-and discover the tremendous pounding of my own blood, and of the sea. Designed by Canadian artist Laurie McGraw, the image portrays a ghostly female figure emerging from a pen, likely representative of one of the many female protagonists in Munro's stories; a laurel branch celebrates her recent Nobel Prize in literature. This fine coin, struck in 99.99% fine silver and presented in a proof finish, would make a meaningful gift for readers, writers, and collectors alike.
