Peoples' view of the world changed forever when modern art began representing objects with simple lines, shapes, patterns and dimension. Science and art were merged forever, because, at its heart, modern art is all about geometry.

This approach fuelled modern technology by providing a mathematical basis for computer-generated imagery (CGI). Polygons could be used to create incredibly lifelike objects, but when Canada's gaming industry tried to adopt the same technique, a problem emerged: realism requires far too many polygons to support the data-intensive, real-time processing that's needed during a video game.

The solution: low poly, a new visual style that delivered smooth gameplay by using fewer polygons. Today, low poly would be considered unsophisticated and crude, but in the 1990s, it was revolutionary and propelled Canada's gaming industry forward.

This breakthrough series portrays some of Canada's greatest icons using geometric shapes, and honours low poly as an art form in its own right.

About the first coin design: The Loon
Designed by Canadian artist Calder Moore, your coin features a stylized portrait of two common loons in a pristine, natural setting that speaks of the majesty of Canada's wilderness! Geometry, technology and art intersect as the entirety of the image is presented in a low poly art style, bringing together multiple polygon shapes in this depiction of an adult loon and its offspring. In the foreground, the adult loon is a picture of grace and elegance as it calmly floats on the surface of a blue lake, surrounded by the tranquility of an evergreen forest that is rich with detail and colour. Underwater, the young loon demonstrates the species' remarkable diving abilities as it uses its webbed feet to propel it forward like a torpedo, its beak quickly closing in on the small fish that will provide it with a well-earned aquatic feast.
