The Guardian Unicorn
The mythical Unicorn featured on this remarkable coin rises up in a way that conveys the towering height of its real-life counterpart. It supports the Shield of the Arms of Canada and carries the royal flag of France. Gold plating selectively highlights the chained coronet of crosses and fleurs-de-lis around the unicorn’s neck as well as the flag’s three fleurs-de-lis. The positioning of the sculpted figure allows for an ornamental flourish: a floral motif based on a frieze that also adorns the Centre Block’s grand entrance!

Remarkable, Artistic Design!

Designed by Canadian artist Patrick Bélanger, the unicorn on this coin stands before the ceremonial entrance on Parliament Hill, in Ottawa, Ontario, where the unicorn supporter of the Arms of Canada is carved into the sandstone that lines the east side of the arched entry. This mythical creature rises up in a way that conveys the towering height (1.8 m) of its real-life counterpart. It supports the shield of the Arms of Canada and carries the Royal flag of France. Gold plating selectively highlights the chained coronet of crosses and fleurs-de-lis around the unicorn’s neck, and the three fleurs-de-lis on the banner. The positioning of the sculpted figure is slightly adjusted to allow the inclusion of an ornamental flourish, whose floral motif is based on a frieze that also adorns the Centre Block’s grand entrance.

Technology Note - Gold Plating
The Royal Canadian Mint’s proprietary selective gold plating process is the most advanced in the world, resulting in unparalleled precision and beauty.
