Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Third coin in an exciting 13-coin series as Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary.

Based on a photograph by Canadian photographer Dale Wilson, the reverse offers a sea-level view of the rocky shoreline at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. The sun’s first rays appear in the horizon to the east, over the calm waters of the Atlantic Ocean; while its return adds a warming glow to the winter sky, the faint daylight illuminates the wave-battered rocks that line this inlet. The iconic Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse is seen rising up toward the skya familiar landmark since its construction in 1915 (on the site of the previous 1868 light), and arguably is one of the world’s most photographed lighthouses. The application of vibrant colour over engraving recreates the life-like qualities of the original photograph, including the golden hues of the sunrise in a setting that is otherwise dominated by dark blue and grey colours. The reverse also features the engraved word “CANADA” and the dates “1867-2017” to commemorate the 150th anniversary of
Confederation.
