Description

The centennial celebration of Alex Colville continues with this fifth coin, which features the artist’s now-iconic design for the five-cent circulation coin issued in 1967. This marks the first time the running rabbit has ever appeared in 99.99% pure gold – a fitting tribute to the famous Canadian artist in honour of the 100th anniversary of his birth.

The reverse re-creates Canada’s 1967 Centennial five-cent coin design by artist Alex Colville and features a profile view of a hopping rabbit. The reverse also features the engraved face value “5 CENTS”, the word “CANADA” and the date “2020”. The obverse features Canada’s second effigy (1965-1989) of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin.
