Get set for adventure with our first-ever kilogram coin featuring a unique oval and concave shape, with special Investment Opportunity!finishes and ultra-high relief, that takes you to the Ottawa River where a team of Voyageurs has just cleared a treacherous cascade, their canoe almost launching itself from this incredibly sculpted and immersive design. Traveling to the Great Lakes was a grueling voyage. Voyageurs paddled as much as 50 strokes a minute, and carried hundreds of kilograms across difficult portages. Their endurance, strength and courage were unimaginable, but the lure of money and adventure was stronger still. By the start of the 18th century, 25% of Montreal's men were Voyageurs, regardless of class or social status. This population dropped as the population grew through the 18th century. To this day, Canada's untamed waters continue to lure thrill-seekers into the wilderness.

Fabulous Design!
RCM engraver Matt Bowen has created this immersive design of voyageurs paddling a canoe in the upper Ottawa River. They have just cleared a treacherous cascade, the force of the current almost launching the canoe from the coin’s ultra-high relief. Water churns beneath their paddles as the voyageurs move in unison, their quick and coordinated strokes ensuring they pass through the rapids intact. Deeply carved boulders give rise to formidable riverbanks where the white water begins. In the distance, the river disappears around a bend, its shores choked with coniferous trees that greatly enhance the sense of perspective and the vastness of the landscape.

In Canadian iconography, no image is as powerful or illustrious as the beloved maple leaf. Beautiful by nature, its pointed lobes and sharp, irregular teeth give it a shape that is as distinctive as the people it represents, for the maple leaf is the symbol of Canada - the emblem of a nation, the cherished representative of all things Canadian. The Royal Canadian Mint continues its tradition of innovation by celebrating a national icon with the largest convex coin yet: a one full kilo, 99.99% pure silver proof!
