The design on this coin by artist Louise Martineau presents an idyllic Canadian winter moment, depicting two stylized figures enjoying a toboggan ride as they play in the first snowfall of the winter. The joy of tobogganing is evident in the boy's outstretched arm, as one imagines the peals of laughter that echo through the northern landscape. The bright red barn, white snow, green of the trees and blue of the distant mountains combine to create a cheerful scene to warm the heart. The word "CANADA" and the date "2015" rest below the top of the rim of the coin, while the face value of "10 DOLLARS" rests against the bottom.
