Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Surrounded by the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic Oceans, Canada’s ocean environments support a rich biodiversity of marine species that include fish, invertebrates and so much more. With its continuing Sea Creatures series, the Royal Canadian Mint highlights some of these fascinating underwater life forms, including the iconic lobster. This is the third coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s popular Sea Creatures series, which celebrates life forms found in Canada’s marine ecosystems.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Emily Damstra features a striking three-quarter profile of a Canadian Atlantic lobster. Finely-detailed engraving recreates the lobster’s characteristic features, from the bumpy “teeth” on the claws to the sensory bristles along the edges of its articulated tail. The long pair of antennae, which are sensitive to the touch and chemicals, rise up past the image field while the shorter antennules are pointed forward to help the lobster react to its surroundings. The lobster’s famous claws are prominently displayed; both its large, big-toothed crusher claw and the fine-edged ripper claw are opened slightly, ready to grip any prey encountered as our lobster walks along the seabed on its eight walking legs.

A unique gift for nature and animal lovers; for those who are fascinated by the marvels of underwater sea life; and for anyone who keeps Atlantic Canada and the sea in their hearts and minds.
