The reverse design by Canadian artist Jayson Fuerstenberg features an Arctic fox poised on a background of gold-plated snow. The foxÕs compact ears and muzzle are clearly distinguishable in its _ profile. Its distinctive long tail warms its legs. An Arctic landscape is engraved within the foxÕs silhouette. It features snow-covered tundra, mountains, and a North American brown lemming, the foxÕs preferred prey. ÒCANADA 2019 20 DOLLARSÓ appears to the right of the foxÕs back. Its engraving follows the contours of the drifting snow.

The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt with ÒELIZABETH II D.G. REGINAÓ engraved along the outer edge of the coin.

AN EXCITING NEW CANVAS for Canadian artist Jayson Fuerstenberg. Fuerstenberg is known for his Òmagic realism.Ó His style is anchored in reality, but he adds mystery or fantastical elements to tell a story or reveal a deeper meaning. This is FuerstenbergÕs first coin with the Mint. He interpreted the Arctic fox as an integral part of the landscape, not just one of its inhabitants.

A MASTERPIECE OF ENGRAVING. This coinÕs innovative double imagery pushes the envelope of engraving as the sculptor carves a landscape within the foxÕs silhouette. The landscape is a projection of the animalÕs inner nature. It is not a tangible element within the scene, yet must be immediately recognized as a part of the Arctic fox, like its thick winter fur and long tail.
