This coin celebrates the RatÕs symbolism as a bringer of joy and longevity. It features a Rat jumping among the branches of a pine tree, an evergreen that is treasured for its strength and longevity. Together, they remind us that life is best lived in balance where maturity knows youthful enthusiasm, wisdom finds wit, and stoicism can reverberate with playful energy. ItÕs a cherished, universal message for all struck in the MintÕs unique specimen finish.

Canadian artist Aries Cheung created this delightful design of a rat jumping among the branches of a pine tree. Clusters of pine needles look fan-like as they sweep up the left side of the coin field. On the right, a playful rat dives into the branches with one paw stretched out to its left. The ratÕs agile body curves along the outer edge of the field and its tail curls inward just above the pine branches to unify the composition. The Chinese character for ÒratÓ is engraved on the ratÕs flank while a good luck coin motif adorns its back, and auspicious peonies and plum blossoms fill the remainder of its body. ÒCANADA 2020Ó and Ò10 DOLLARSÓ are engraved above and below the design. 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.
