Description of obverse and reverse
The reverse features an original work by Canadian artist 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 sits a scene from a rugged Yukon riverbank. 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. Beautifully rendered by Royal Canadian Mint engravers, this mesmerizing design offers a something new for the viewer at each glance. Barnard has also cleverly hidden within the design the initials of each Canadian province and territory.
