Description

The O Canada! series continues with a special tribute to an animal ambassador. Seen here, the beaver is synonymous with CanadaÕs wilderness and the waterways that vein our landscape. ItÕs a community-minded creature that is well adapted to its environmentÑqualities that exemplify the Canadian spirit. This industrious builder also played a major role in our nationÕs past. In fact, no other creature has shaped our nationÕs history like the busy beaver, whose pelt fuelled the economic and social development of modern Canada.

Designed by Canadian artist June Steube, the reverse captures the majesty of an official emblem that embodies the history, landscape and wild spirit of Canada. The busy beaver (Castor canadensis) is shown peacefully standing on a pile of gnawed branches near the waterÕs edge in one of CanadaÕs many lakes and streams. The reverse includes the curve text ÒCANADAÓ above a maple flourish and the year Ò2020Ó. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
