About the Design:

Canadian artist Ken Ryan has created an invigorating design of a mountain biker descending a winding trail at high speed. His facial expression is one of intense focus and every muscle is braced to maintain control and stay on the trail. The narrow summit he has just traversed rises in the background while rocks in the trail hint at the ever-changing conditions that he must navigate.

Packaging:

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

        This coin brought back an image of the first time I bought penny candy with a five cent piece...bright and reflecting in my eyes with surfaces so smooth.

          Purchased as a gift for an avid mountain biker and bike shop owner.
          He's not a collector, but this will display well at his bike store or home.

              Keep to remember the change by the Librals.
              It would have been nice if a 6th coin was included showing the previous flag to reflect the change over,and giving a historical fac,even if it was a print on paper.
