Description of obverse and reverse This design shows a young person enjoying a recreational outing. As he dips his hand in the water, it touches the past and the reflection reveals an early native paddler in a traditional birch-bark canoe as it appears on the early silver dollar of 1935. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
A brief annotation The canoe has become as much a part of the Canadian visual lexicon as the Canada goose, the beaver, and the maple leaf. Canada’s lakes and waterways have long been a place for people to pursue ambitions and adventures. In the past, First Nations and early settlers conducted business here, transporting goods and passengers. Today, the water is broken by the paddles of weekend explorers who enjoy a different life than those who have gone before, but who are enchanted still by the natural grandeur of this place we call home.
