Celebrate friendship with a playful global ambassador. This fine silver coin is a ready-made gift that is exceptionally plated in yellow goldÑthe colour of prosperity. Its design is dedicated to the people who enrich our lives every day, through the special bonds that are built on honesty, loyalty, trust and generosity.

The reverse design by Simon Ng is inspired by the giant pandaÕs (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) playful personality, peaceful demeanour and friendly characteristics. Like old friends, the two giant pandas sit beside one another; both are facing the viewer while feeding on their daily diet of bamboo leaves and stalks. Above one pandaÕs head is the Chinese character for ÒfriendshipÓ, while the engraved words ÒFRIENDSHIPÓ and ÒAMITIEÓ add to this cross-cultural celebration. The reverse also features the word ÒCANADAÓ and Ò2019Ó, along with a ÒPÓ mark that denotes the plated nature of the coin. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
