Design:
Your coin features mirror-image landscapes of the Rocky Mountains and Mount Fuji. The one half of the design presents a well-known scene of Jasper National Park's Spirit Island, located on stunning Maligne Lake. The jagged, unmistakable peaks of the Rockies rise into the distant background, following the lake's rocky, spruce-lined water line. Opposite this image and mirroring its composition on the other half of the reverse is a landscape portrait of snow-capped Mount Fuji, as it is often depicted in art and photography. In the foreground, graphically reflecting an island of spruce in the Rocky Mountain scene, a Japanese Black Pine rises skyward. The two scenes are bisected by a horizontal band bearing the mirrored bilingual phrases ""ROCKY MOUNTAINS – MONTAGNES ROCHEUSES" and "MOUNT FUJI – MONT FUJI." The design also incorporates the Japanese text for "Rocky Mountains" and "Mount Fuji."

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

      On the small size - approximately the size of Cdn $0.05 coin. However the quality and detail is great.

      I bought the coin as a present for my niece who is off to Japan for the first time. The coin could not have been more perfect - along the theme 'from the Rockies to Mt. Fuji' or the other way around depending upon how you hold the coin. The small size and fine detail make this coin very classy.
