Each of these charming winter scenes is an original design by Susan Taylor, one of the talented artists and engravers behind the Mint's circulation and commemorative coin designs.
A Wintry Sleigh Ride - A sleigh ride is a great way to experience the season and connect with Canada's pioneering past. Often pulled by trustworthy Canadian Horses—a breed unique to Canada and descended from the best stock in the royal stables of King Louis XIV—horse-drawn sleighs were among the best means of winter transport.
Nanuk of the North - The grandeur of the Arctic has been meticulously recreated, featuring a mother polar bear with her two cubs, and an iceberg in the background. Though few Canadians have actually seen a polar bear in the wild, most agree that this quintessential symbol of the North and the land she reigns are a part of us.
Hockey Dreams on Ice - Whether your memory is of slapping a puck around on the ice, or a ball in the street or schoolyard, hockey is the sport that best defines our nation and warms our hearts and souls in cold winter months.
