Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
To celebrate Canada’s rich biodiversity, the Royal Canadian Mint highlights the animal kingdom’s family bonds in a series that features endearing images of Canada’s baby animals. The seventh coin in this series showcases Canada’s legendary porcupine (Erethizon dorsatum) species with a touching image of a young porcupine (porcupette) learning to forage alongside its mother in one of Canada’s many forests.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant depicts a young porcupine (porcupette) in one of Canada’s many forests. Selective colour enhances the detailed engraving and brings this side-view image to life, recreating the porcupette’s dense black coat intermingled with long guard hairs and white-tinged quills. While the mother in the engraved background has turned a curious eye toward the viewer, the dark-coloured porcupette seems unconcerned with our intrusion; its attention is innocently focused on the pink clover and green leaves that have sprung up from the forest floor at the foot of a tree. Gripping the wildflower in its forepaw, the porcupette brings it to its mouth to enjoy a small feast as part of the transition to its herbaceous diet.

A heart-warming gift for any animal lover and a wonderful start to a young person’s collection.
