It appears as a faint ribbon of colour in the night. Slowly, it strengthens and expands before bending and arching its way across the cloudless sky, like a dancing pathway to another world. As shown on our 11th coin, the aurora borealisÑor Northern LightsÑis one of natureÕs most wondrous light shows. And Canada offers a front-row seat to this curtain of glowing colours, which lights up our skies and our spirits during the colder months of the year. This Mintage is limited to only 4,000. GST/HST exempt.

The reverse design by Steve Hepburn captures the wonder of seeing the aurora borealis in Canada. In the foreground, a young boy sits on his fatherÕs shoulders as they look up at the night sky, where the glowing green bands of the aurora borealis dance above the towering evergreens. The image is framed by stylized icons that represent popular outdoor activities and sights in Canada: (clockwise from top) Niagara Falls Winter Lights; Christmas tree; rodeo; wine tasting; dogsledding; folk music; cherry blossoms; maple syrup tasting; whale watching; tulips; coastal drive; and the aurora borealis. The obverse features the year Ò2019Ó and face value Ò3 DOLLARSÓ, and the framed effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
