An Original Work of Art!
For the Year of the Pig, Canadian artist Simon Ng has created a stylized depiction of the happy-go-lucky Pig trotting along beneath the Chinese character for Pig. Artistic flourishes convey the animal’s warm and positive character, as well as its traditional association with friendship and confidence. Wherever it goes, the Pig carries luck in the form of the stylized hydrangea and daisy found within the Pig’s rounded shape, along with an auspicious lotus flower on its cheek. The Pig’s integrity, generosity, loyalty and optimism give it strength for its journey, but a second lucky daisy atop the traditional Chinese latticework may also double its fortunes.

The Specimen Finish

This 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.
