Description

They are synonymous, inseparable, forever unitedÑtwo icons that are deeply woven into the fabric of our nation. The inspiring words of O Canada and the familiar sight of CanadaÕs national flag are inextricably linked on this fine silver coin, whose text-based design was made possible by the use of micro-sized letters.

Words become art on the reverse by Tony Bianco, where a luminous proof finish highlights the engraved outline of CanadaÕs national flag as it flaps in the breeze. Upon closer inspection, the iconic red bands and 11-point maple leaf are shaped by the English and French lyrics to O Canada; this colourful, textbased rendering was made possible by the use of coloured micro-sized letters, which ensures every letter is defined in spite of its diminutive size.

Two of CanadaÕs most powerful expressions of national identity and pride become one on the reverse, where the flag illustrates the anthem and the anthem illustrates the flag.
