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. In the continuing Celebrating Canada’s 150th series, this ninth coin travels north of the 60th parallel to offer a small glimpse of Yukon’s spectacular natural beauty. This collaborative series between the Royal Canadian Mint and Canadian Geographic magazine features striking designs based on unforgettable photographs from the bi-monthly publication. NINTH in an exciting 13-coin series: As Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary, embark on a cross-country collecting experience with a stunning series that showcases Canada’s iconic flora, fauna, landscapes and landmarks!

Based on a photograph taken by Canadian wilderness photographer Peter Mather, the reverse features vibrant colour over the detailed engraved image of nature’s most colourful light display in Yukon. Heavy snow lines the edges of McIntyre Creek in Whitehorse, YT, where the towering conifers are reflected in the still waters below. On this quiet winter night, the beauty of the northern scenery is heightened by the luminous green and pink hues of the aurora borealis overhead, as it dances across the night sky and lights up the landscape below. 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!
