Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Yves Bérubé, your coin features an iconic Arctic structure: the igloo. The image presents an Inuit family perfecting the exterior of their home. The man stands on the right side of the image, cutting out a small square for light. This he may fill with a block of clear ice—an ice window. On the left side of the image, a woman carrying a baby in an amaut on her back carefully perfects the igloo’s exterior. A leashed and harnessed Husky sled dog stands before the dwelling’s circular entry tunnel, awaiting his call to duty.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a custom beauty box.
