Designed by artist Rebecca Yanovskaya, the four-part reverse image ties together the four elements within a circle that represents a continuous circleÑCanadaÕs past, present and future. Each square coin features a quadrant named (in English and in French) for an elemental energy, with all four elements bleeding into the other:

ÒFIREÓ features the comforting glow of a campfire that symbolizes heat and light, with maple leaf-shaped flames that represent pride burning in the hearts of Canadians.

ÒAIRÓ is represented by the warm chinook that descends the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains, and the winds that provide lift for our migratory bird species.

ÒEARTHÓ features the forests, rocks and fields that are the foundation of this land.

ÒWATERÓ is represented by a fast-flowing river filled with salmon to symbolize the fisheries.

The completed circle is framed by red, gold, brown and green-coloured maple leaves, the beloved symbol of Canada. Each reverse includes the engraved word ÒCANADAÓ and the year Ò2019Ó. Each obverse features the face value Ò3 DOLLARSÓ and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Our first exploration of a concept that is fundamental to the ancient sciences and philosophy. Instead of symbols, the Royal Canadian Mint opted for a visual storytelling approach by highlighting the four forces of nature at work across Canada.

The carefully sculpted design is rich in detail, with different frostings that transform an etched image into a dynamic piece of art.
