Squirrels and oak trees go together like picnics and parks, and this coin features a furry onlooker scrutinizing the fun from above. This is the first Royal Canadian Mint coin crafted with Canadian Oak wood embellishments that have been laser-cut to precision - a unique, highly collectible feature! Expertly crafted with a playful design that will preserve memories of picnics and walks in the park; treasured times in the backyard; and fun encounters with squirrels - wherever they may be.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Tony Bianco evokes the curiosity that fills both parties during a playful, inter-species encounter. A grey squirrel clings to an oak tree upside down to scrutinize the activity below. To the left and right of the squirrel, five embellishments showcase the oak's distinctive leaves and bring the textural quality of wood to the scene.

An original gift celebrating the endearing squirrel - an energetic, acrobatic, sometimes exasperating wilderness resident that has made it into residential yards, city parks, and people's hearts everywhere.
