Great Canadian icons come together as one
From culture to geography, Canada is a country defined by diversity. And nowhere is that diversity more evident than in the different icons that represent Canada.
The challenge with this 5 oz. coin was to represent Canada in a symbolic design that highlights what makes us unique. But with so many icons to choose from, it's hard to pick just one. Instead, this coin combines several famous Canadian symbols to form a single image that radiates pride. On the reverse, each stylized icon tells a story—from the canoe to the evergreens, the North Star and the inunnguaq, and even the rocks that represent each province and territory. Coming together as one, they give shape to a nation’s spirit, a shape that resembles the most famous Canadian icon of all: the maple leaf.
This striking combination of gorgeous artwork and numismatic craftsmanship on a 5 oz 99.99% pure coin is a collectible piece of art that shows the enduring love for Canada.
