The reverse of this unique 3D dome effect in the shape of a water droplet lends a level of dimension and depth. It features a 3D droplet with a colour inset image of Earth, conveying the importance of water to our planet. The space around the water droplet brings the design’s focus to Canada, and the diverse fauna and flora that live there on land, in the sky, and in the water. It features a Red Fox, a red-headed Woodpecker on a flowering Dogwood tree, and a falcon, an Orca as it breaches over the waves, and mountains.
The reverse is engraved word “CANADA”, and the date “2016”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
