The Welcoming Beaver
From atop the Centre Block's arched entryway, Castor canadensis extends a uniquely Canadian "welcome" to all who stand at the base of the Peace Tower. This special seat of honor is indicative of the beaver's special significance, for few other species invoke the spirit of the Canadian wilderness and embody more than 300 years of history, exploration and industry. The Centre Block's stone-sculptured beaver is the second of four Keepers of Parliament featured in a magnificent series of 10 oz. silver coins. On the finely engraved reverse, the shield-supporting sentinel is just as detailed as its ornate counterpart on Parliament Hill — but with a touch of gleaming gold that brings elegance to an already stately design.

Remarkable, Artistic Design!

Designed by Canadian artist Patrick Bélanger, this remarkable design offers a rare close-up of the beaver sculpture that stands atop the ceremonial entrance on Parliament Hill, in Ottawa, Ontario. The deliberate positioning of the beaver helps convey the height (1 meter) of the actual stone sentinel, while a frontal view emphasizes the facial features and textural details. The industrious animal emblem of Canada grips an unusual shield bearing the floral emblems of five European cultures that figure prominently in Canadian history: the English Tudor rose, the Scottish thistle, the Irish shamrock, the French fleur-de-lis and the Welsh leek. Gold plating selectively highlights the heraldic-themed element and a scattering of maple leaves. To the right of the sculpture is an ornamental flourish, whose floral motif is based on a frieze that also adorns the Centre Block's grand entrance. The design includes the face value, 100 DOLLARS, and the words CANADA 2018.
