Once the choice mode of winter transportation for Aboriginal peoples, dog sledding is a much-loved seasonal activity in Canada. Even as a sport, its popularity is easy to understand: there's the thrill of the speed; the cold winter air that heightens the senses; the infectious energy of the dogs lunging forward and working in tandem; and the solitude that can only be found in the Canadian wilderness—particularly at night, with only the moon or the northern lights to light the way. This is Iconic Canada! Whether landscape, flora, fauna or tradition, symbolic icons that are so identifiably Canadian bring us together "with glowing hearts."

Designed by Claudio D'Angelo, your coin features a dog sled team riding out in the Canadian wilderness beneath the aurora borealis on a cold winter night. Nature's silent hold on the wintry landscape is temporarily disrupted by the arrival of a dog sledding team, which infuses the cold air with barking and an infectious, almost boundless energy. Working in tandem, these four harnessed dogs merrily make their way along the path, pulling the sled and their driver (musher) behind them at a moderate pace across the wintry landscape. Viewed from a lower vantage point that places the focus on the lead dogs, the huskies seemingly smile as they race under a starry sky. The musher is bundled up and well equipped for the journey on this clear night. There is no race here—just him and the solitude of the great outdoors, while the greenish hue of the aurora borealis dances overhead in the blue-black sky. It's the Great White North at its grandest!


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