About the Design:
The reverse image by Canadian artist Joel Kimmel presents the route taken by the Norwegian gold to Canada by way of England. This coin's symbolically rich reverse design is layered over a stylized map showing northern Europe, the Atlantic, and eastern Canada. Four stars mark strategic regions of gold movement from Europe to Canada during the war, including Norway, England, France, and Canada. Engraved over the map is a maple leaf whose left side is from a Canadian sugar maple and whose right side is from a Norway maple. The reverse is also engraved with the bilingual commemorative text "THE ALLIED GOLD/L'OR DES ALLIÉS" and "75 YEARS/ANS" and the word "CANADA."  

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a maroon clamshell with a custom beauty box.
