The shadow box is a timeless artform, one that draws you in by layering shapes to create a beautiful and familiar scene—like the one featured on this extraordinary collectible. Building on the multilayered concept introduced in 2019, the latest minting innovation from our R&D Lab is a prototype shadow box coin that pushes the boundaries of dimensional engraving even further. The coin’s reverse takes the 2019 Birds in the Backyard design and breaks it down into four distinct layers of art. By spacing out and superimposing these layers, the arrangement forms a richer, more complex scene with unparalleled depth, detail and realism, made possible by our R&D researchers. From the R&D Lab comes another exciting world first: a shadow box coin. After a robust research and development process that began before 2022, we are pleased to share this amazing collectible with you. The 2022-dated coin features the obverse with the effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt that has appeared on our coins from 2003 to 2022.
