A Royal Canadian Mint first that celebrates unity within diversity—a cornerstone of Canadian pride. From the shores of the Atlantic to the mountains of the Pacific Coast to the vast frozen North, diversity is a key thread running through the fabric of our society. This unique coin is undulated on both the obverse and reverse, capturing the dynamism of the coloured flag and of this great land.
The reverse image by Canadian artist Rebecca Yanovskaya is struck on an innovative undulated coin. The undulations give a unique sense of movement to the flag waving in the wind. On the left side of the field is the Peggy’s Point Lighthouse, situated at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. On the right side of the field is the pinnacle of the Peace Tower that rises above Centre Block on Parliament Hill. Between the two is a detailed image of Kicking Horse Canyon in the picturesque British Columbia interior. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
