Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Designed by artist Rebecca Yanovskaya, the four-part reverse image ties together the four elements within a circle that represents a continuous circle—Canada’s past, present and future. Each square coin features a quadrant named (in English and in French) for an elemental energy, with all four elements bleeding into the other:

“FIRE” features the comforting glow of a campfire that symbolizes heat and light, with maple leaf-shaped flames that represent pride burning in the hearts of Canadians.

“AIR” is represented by the warm chinook that descends the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains, and the winds that provide lift for our migratory bird species.

“EARTH” features the forests, rocks and fields that are the foundation of this land.

“WATER” is represented by a fast-flowing river filled with salmon to symbolize the fisheries.

The completed circle is framed by red, gold, brown and green-coloured maple leaves, the beloved symbol of Canada. Each reverse includes the engraved word “CANADA” and the year “2019”. Each obverse features the face value “3 DOLLARS” and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Our first exploration of a concept that is fundamental to the ancient sciences and philosophy. Instead of symbols, the Royal Canadian Mint opted for a visual storytelling approach by highlighting the four forces of nature at work across Canada.

The carefully sculpted design is rich in detail, with different frostings that transform an etched image into a dynamic piece of art.
