A Dramatic and Historic Design
The design features a reproduction of the vignette that graced the proof and specimen dollar coins issued in 1997. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Canada’s 1-dollar circulation piece, Canadian artist Jean-Luc Grondin offered his own take on the iconic reverse by depicting the loon taking flight. Reverse gold plating fills the field while the coin’s silver surface draws the eye to the engraved relief, which includes the words CANADA and DOLLAR, and the date 2019.
