Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
From colourful flora to iconic fauna and landmarks, the breathtaking photographs of Canadian Geographic reflect the rich diversity of the Canadian experience. The fifth coin in the ongoing Celebrating Canada’s 150th series brings the focus on Manitoba, and captures the beauty and colour intensity of the agricultural landscape in this Prairie province. This collaborative series between the Royal Canadian Mint and Canadian Geographic magazine features striking designs based on unforgettable photographs from the bi-monthly publication.

Based on a photograph captured by Canadian photographer John Sylvester, the reverse features vibrant colour over the engraved image of an agricultural setting in rural Manitoba. In the foreground, the brilliant yellow fields of canola naturally draw the eye to the gently rolling landscape, where grain bins can be seen in the far-off distance. The application of vibrant colour over engraving offers a remarkably life-like recreation of the original photograph, which beautifully captures the contrast between the deep blue sky overhead and the intensely yellow crops that dazzle beneath the hot summer sun. The reverse also features the engraved word “CANADA” and the dates “1867-2017” to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

An affordable way to introduce others to the joy of coin collecting while fostering a widespread appreciation for the incomparable beauty of Canada’s landscapes!
