There are few things more exciting than spotting a whale in the wild. With our three lengthy coastlines, Canada has an abundance of incredible whale-watching opportunities to be had in the east, west and north! The tenth Fun & Festivities coin comes at the tail end of the peak season for whale watching in Canada. Whether itÕs a short trip or a daylong adventure, or even the view from the shore, whale watching is one activity that will leave you in awe of the wonderful life in our oceans.

The reverse design by Steve Hepburn re-creates the thrilling experience of witnessing a whale breaching in CanadaÕs coastal waters. In the foreground, a humpback whale suddenly lifts itself above the surface of the water, much to the delight of observers onboard a whale watch boat in the background. The image is framed by stylized icons that represent popular outdoor activities and sights in Canada: (clockwise from top) Niagara Falls; a Christmas tree; a rodeo; wine tasting; dogsledding; folk music; cherry blossoms; maple syrup tasting; whale watching; tulips; coastal drives; 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.
