The Atlantic East Coast
The lighthouses of Atlantic Canada embody the history and spirit of our rocky eastern shores, where the landscape shifts from soaring cliffs to picture-perfect coves. The last stop on our Canadian Coasts journey brings us to the Atlantic coast, where the sun rises first in Canada; on the square-shaped reverse, a selectively gold-plated arrangement of iconic images highlights Atlantic Canada’s rich maritime heritage, while emphasizing our enduring connection with the sea.

An Original Work of Art!
The sun rises over the East Coast of this beauty, designed by Canadian artist Maurade Baynton, where the craggy rocks symbolize the rugged coastline and its many sheltered coves. From its central position, the gold-plated sun casts a warm morning light that illuminates Canada’s oldest operational lighthouse, the Sambro Island Lighthouse, one of many such landmarks that embody the region’s history and spirit. An impressively sized marine mammal, the humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) symbolizes the diverse marine life found in the waters of the North Atlantic and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, where whale-watching has become a popular tourist attraction. Anchoring the corners of the design is the lobster (Homarus americanus), an icon of the Atlantic fishing culture and an economic powerhouse. Selective gold plating frames the obverse and also places special emphasis on the central sun and the lighthouses.
