The Pacific Sunset
Your journey begins in the west, where selective gold plating adds a golden hue to the setting sun that centers this tribute to Canada’s West Coast. The splash of sunshine extends to the Kermode bear, one of several engraved icons that represent land, sea and sky on the gold-framed reverse—a powerful reminder that the whole of nature, all that surrounds us, is beautifully interconnected.

An Original Work of Art!
Designed by artist Maurade Baynton, the setting sun is at the center of your coin’s design. Selective gold plating adds a warm, golden hue to the stylized representation of the sun, which evokes images or memories of spectacular sunsets along Canada’s Pacific Coast. The sun’s warmth and beauty radiates outwards, towards the intricately engraved icons that form a concentric pattern around the center, much like a compass. As though warmed by the sunlight, the Kermode bear (Ursus americanus kermodei) or spirit bear that famously inhabits British Columbia’s coastal rain forests is also highlighted with selective gold plating. The sailboat represents the sailing tradition along British Columbia’s coast, be it recreational or for fishing, while another great cultural icon, the orca (Orcinus orca), symbolizes our timeless connection with the sea. Gold plating also highlights the rim that frames the reverse, to reinforce the idea that everything in nature is beautifully interconnected.
