Design:
At the centre of the Arms is the Shield with the royal symbols of Great Britain and France in the upper quadrants: three lions (England), one lion within a "double tressure" (Scotland), the harp of Tara (Ireland), and three fleur-de-lis (France), while a sprig of three maple leaves representing Canadians of all origins occupies the bottom portion of the Shield.

The Supporters holding the Shield are based on those used with the Royal Arms of the United Kingdom since 1603. A lion holding a lance with the Union Jack stands to the (viewer's) left of the Shield, while a unicorn, a longtime royal symbol of Scotland, stands to the right holding the royal flag of France.
The ring or "annulus" behind the Shield is the latest addition to the Arms that was approved by H.M. The Queen in 1994. It reads "Desiderantes Meliorem Patriam" (They desire a better country), the motto of the Order of Canada.

Above the Shield is a royal helmet draped with a mantle resembling maple leaves. Placed atop the royal helmet is the Crest set on a wreath of twisted white and red cloth: a crowned lion holding a maple leaf in its right paw, a Canadian adaptation of the Royal Crest of England.

Above the crest is the royal crown, indicative of the fact that Canada is a monarchy.

The base of the Arms features a garland of floral emblems representing the four ancient kingdoms represented in the Shield: the English rose, the Scottish thistle, the Irish shamrock and the French lily. The Latin motto that appears on the scroll above the flowers reads "A Mari usque ad Mare" (From sea to sea), the motto of Canada.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with protect sleeve.
