Representative at the Mint wasn't too impressed... suggested that I go to the Post Office to view. I knew what I was looking at & for... what a disappointment! The Post Office Clerk couldn't tell what it was suppose to be.
Very poorly done... Graphics are barely recognizable & I knew what I was looking at!!! I suggest to melt it down & re-do...

    This set is stunning. Each piece is a work of art in and of itself. Definitely not hohum or boring. Even the box off sets this too. An excellent cillection of coin Canadiana. Very Highly recommended.

    This was bought as a commemorative coin. However, it looked far better in the images for advertising than in real life. The hologram was very washed out. I own the coin with the wolf howling during a Northern Lights display. And that one was excellent. This one, not so much. There are too many detailed images in too small a space. They could've been presented far better.

      With original and unique lines gives a very good Impressionist representation of these animals. The very selection of the animals are the often overlooked but still popular with the locals.

            I don't know what everybody is complaining about. I have this coin in my lighted display cabinet. If I move left to right, or up and down I get the different colors same as in the advertisement. Plus the 3D is awesome, the Canada arm and the astronaut jump out at you. I can even see the two Canadian flags, one on the arm of the astronaut and the other on the Canada arm plus the two red rings on the legs of the astronaut. Truly a beautiful one of a kind coin.

                The image on the website implied that the hologram would be quite colourful. It is very difficult to get the hologram to appear and there is very little colour. I was very disappointed with this coin.

                    The picture shown of the coin was so colorful - but the coin itself has almost no color and consequently it is hard to make out the image. The "invention" it commemorates was so amazing and has been responsible for so many beautiful images from space - too bad the coin is so ordinary!!
