Your coin was designed by renowned Canadian artist Tim Barnard and is titled “Canada Through the Eyes of Tim Barnard.” This astonishing circular design includes more than 50 distinct images symbolizing elements of Canada both broadly iconic and personal to the artist himself. At the centre of your coin sits a scene from a rugged Yukon riverbank—meaningful to Barnard for time spent there under summer's midnight sun. From here, the image circles out in a panoply of Canadian illustrations; images from Canadian history and portraits of historical figures; scenes from First Nations culture, art, and mythology; Canadian flora and fauna; people bundled up against winter's chill; and much more. This mesmerizing design offers something new for you at each glance. Barnard has also cleverly hidden within the design the initials of each Canadian province and territory.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with custom beauty box. (text: Canadian Mint)
