Description

O Canada! From colourful flora to iconic fauna and landmarks, breathtaking images of CanadaÕs landscapes reflect the diversity of the Canadian experience. The second coin in this 13-coin series explores Quebec as a changing landscape teeming with lakes and rivers, whose waters have helped shape CanadaÕs history while providing solitude and recreation for paddling enthusiasts of all ages.

SECOND in an exciting 13-coin series: As Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary, embark on a cross-country collecting experience with a stunning series that showcases CanadaÕs iconic flora, fauna, landscapes and landmarks!

Based on a photograph by Canadian nature photographer Daniel Dagenais, the reverse offers a first-person perspective of a kayak excursion on a river in Quebec. In the crisp morning air, the clouded sunrise and the fog rolling off the steep cliffs add to the sense of stillness in the air. The application of vibrant colour over engraving recreates the life-like qualities of the original photograph, in which the stern of the bright blue kayak contrasts with the muted green and grey colours of the untamed landscape.

An affordable way to introduce others to the joy of coin collecting while fostering a widespread appreciation for the incomparable beauty of CanadaÕs landscapes!
