Canadian artist Laurie McGaw has created a fun and uplifting collage of the places and things that make Canada great. Clockwise from the top: hockey sticks and puck, snowflakes, polar bear, inukshuk, Parliament Hill, Canadian flag, maple syrup, lighthouse, lobster traps, toboggan, Canada goose, canoe, beaver, moose, black spruce tree, Beaver floatplane, salmon, wheat, cowboy boot, mountains. The elements are roughly placed in an east/west and north/south orientation to reflect their locations on a map of Canada. Taken together, they encircle a maple leaf that is the heart of the design - and the heart of this nation. Proudly engraved with 150 YEARS to celebrate the sesquicentennial anniversary of a great nation.So Many Icons - An All-Encompassing, Patriotic and Cultural Design!

The Specimen Finish
Canadian_Flag.jpgThis coin features the uniquely-Canadian "specimen" finish, a three-fold combination of different finishes. The design (raised area or relief) includes both brilliant and mirrored surfaces, while the fields (background) are subtly striated, resulting in a contrasting, matte appearance. No other mint in the world employs the specimen finish.
