We all view the world in our own unique way. And sometimes, we’re inspired to see things in a new light, which gives shape to new ideas … like our first Canada-shaped coin! Proudly patriotic, this piece is our latest engineering wonder. Its unusual contour wraps around the engraved map of Canada, which is transformed by a storybook-worthy collection of animals. The illustrative style is fun, and the colours add a sense of whimsy to the birds and mammals that form each province and territory — from Nunavut’s Canadian Inuit dog to Ontario’s common loon.

The reverse image by Alisha Giroux is a re-imagining of the map of Canada, with stylized birds or mammals forming the shape of each province and territory it represents. From left to right, these icons of the Canadian wilderness include: a raven (Yukon), Kermode bear (British Columbia), gyrfalcon (Northwest Territories), bighorn sheep (Alberta), white-tailed deer (Saskatchewan), Canadian Inuit dog (Nunavut), plains bison (Manitoba), common loon (Ontario), snowy owl (Quebec), chickadee (New Brunswick), osprey (Nova Scotia), blue jay (Prince Edward Island), and woodland caribou (Newfoundland and Labrador). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
