The Flying Loon dollar flies once more, this time, as a reverse gold-plated 5 oz. piece. Jean-Luc Grondin's design for the 1997 proof and specimen dollar is included in this large-sized series, which pays tribute to Canadian circulation coins past and present.

The reverse features a reproduction of the design that graced the proof and specimen dollar coins issued in 1997. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Canada's 1-dollar circulation piece, Canadian artist Jean-Luc Grondin offered his own take on the iconic reverse by depicting the loon taking flight. Reverse gold plating fills the field while the coin's silver surface draws the eye to the engraved relief, which includes the words "CANADA" and "DOLLAR", and the date "2019". The reverse gold-plated obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

The reverse design hasn't appeared on any other coin since 1997, when it was featured on the 1997 Proof Dollar and the specimen dollar exclusive to the "Oh Canada" and 1997 Specimen sets.
