Description Technical Specs Extended Information
The year 2012 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Canadian Coast Guard. This important Canadian marine service was created in 1962 to support mariners in Canadian waters, conduct search and rescue services, maintain Canada’s sovereignty in the Arctic and in coastal waters, respond to technical advances in its domain, and address issues associated with growing vessel traffic.

This cupronickel coin features Three Degrees Creative Group Inc.’s striking stylized image of vessels from the Canadian Coast Guard’s fleet hard at work in and above Canadian waters. In rich blue and white, roiling waters from the Arctic to the oceans, rivers, and other waterways of Canada span the coin’s central field. Across the sky at the top of the image, a search-and-rescue helicopter flies toward the coin’s right side. Below it, an icebreaker cuts toward the left-hand side of the coin through a frozen field of ice as the white ridges of a far north landscape rise behind it. A buoy floats placidly below the icebreaker, while another ship, moving at full speed tears rightward, approached by an inflated rescue boat bearing three red-jacketed rescue workers. Each vessel bears the red and white colouring of the Canadian Coast Guard. The image’s silver frame is designed to give the impression of looking through a circular life-preserver and bears the embossed words “CANADA,” CCG-GCC 1962-2012,” the year “2012,” and the face value of “25 CENTS.”
