An Historic Design
The obverse design represents the current Great Seal of Canada, which was struck by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1952. While the coin's 36 mm diameter provides a sizable tableau for this representation, every element of Eric Aldwinckle’s original design is in place. Engraved in ultra-high relief, the robed figure of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is enthroned on the Coronation Chair or Throne in Westminster Abbey. She holds the orb (orbis crucifer) and scepter in her hands. Framed by a band bearing the bilingual inscription REINE DU CANADA – ELIZABETH II – QUEEN OF CANADA, the embossed image basks in the golden hue of selective 24-karat gold plating, which adds an elegant touch to the plain, medallic rim and edge on both the obverse and reverse as well. The reverse features the gold-plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt, along with the engraved word CANADA, the face value 25 DOLLARS and the year of issue, 2017.
