Description

The coast is an irresistible place, that unique point where land meets sea, and animals from both realms interact in ways unseen just a short distance away. This captivating new series takes you to the stunning coasts that envelope Canada on the west and the east, and across its northern extremes. Water shapes the land by smoothing rock and cutting deep crevasses, and in the same way, each coin in this series has been meticulously polished and engraved to bring you an ultra-crisp woodcut design featuring iconic elements that make each of Canada's coasts unique, beginning with the orca, bald eagle, mountains and trees that define the Pacific Coast.

Canadian artist Cathy Boursey-Sabourin has created an original woodcut design of iconic elements that define Canada's Pacific Coast, an orca and bald eagle, with the rainforest and mountains in the background. The orca has just surfaced to take a breath of air, its back and large dorsal fin still visible above the water. To its left, an eagle descends towards the water, its claws outstretched and ready to grab a fish just below the surface. The orca's fin and the eagle's wings rise upwards, echoing the towering trees and mountains behind them, and the design flows from left to right, like waves that roll in from the Pacific Ocean and crash onto Canada's western shores.

First issue in the three-coin Canadian Coastal Series that will also feature the Arctic (2019) and Atlantic Coasts (2020).
