Highly Significant Classic Circulating Coinage Designs

Polar Bear
Canada’s bi-metallic two-dollar coin, launched in 1996, features a polar bear, the world’s largest terrestrial carnivore, which can weigh over 1400 pounds (650 kilograms). It lives near the cold seas and frozen ice of Canada’s far-north.

Common Loon
Launched in 1987, the reverse of the one-dollar coin, represents a common loon swimming against the rugged backdrop of the Canadian Shield. The loon’s haunting calls are one the quintessential sound of the Canadian wilderness in summer.

Caribou
An enduring symbol of the Canadian north, the majestically-antlered caribou has remained a Canadian icon since first appearing on the twenty-five-cent piece in 1936.

Bluenose Schooner
In the 1921, Atlantic Canadians built one of the finest racing and fishing vessels in Canadian history, the Bluenose. Known for its speed, and almost unbeatable in a race, this ship first appeared on the ten-cent piece in 1937.

Beaver
The beaver is Canada’s national animal. Highly sought after for its rich fur in the 17th and 18th centuries, it was the mainstay of the colonial economy for centuries. Today, the beaver is revered as a symbol of hard work and perseverance.
