Re-creates a roaring campfire beneath a full moon! Order today!

For many Canadians, camping isn't just a change of scenery from the hustle and bustle of modern-life—it's a way of immersing one's self in nature and re-connecting with the world around us. Whether you love hiking, canoeing, or simply sitting by the fire beneath a full moon, camping in the great outdoors represents a timeless experience that quiets the mind and stirs the soul, and creates cherished memories to last a lifetime.

A day of outdoor activity isn't complete without a campfire! With the tent pitched and sleeping bags ready to envelop the weary, a fireside gathering is a special time for songs to be sung and tales to be told. There's a magical quality to the smell of wood smoke wafting in the cooling air, as the warm glow of the fire replaces the faded heat of the setting sun. Those in attendance often find their gaze lingering on the flickering flames whose dance-like motions lend to contemplation, and a quiet appreciation for this quality time that strengthens bonds between one and all.

A beautiful and fun coin, ideal for people who enjoy outdoor campfires! Order today!

Designed by Joel Kimmel, your coin captures the mood in an idyllic lakeside setting, where two campers are enjoying a fireside moment. Blue and purple colours dominate the landscape, where the shadowy shapes of rolling hills and dense forest rise up along the horizon. In the sky, pink hues are the last, lingering reminders of daylight, as a canopy of stars emerges overhead. Glow-in-the-dark technology re-creates the luminous shine of a full moon and its reflection on the lake, where a loon and two chicks are still visible in the moonlight. On the sandy beach, the male camper rests on a rock while the female sits on a log; both are quietly enjoying each other's company while taking in the beauty of their surroundings. Their profiles are softly illuminated by the warm glow of the campfire "burning" bright at the centre of the coin, not far from the pitched tent that is illuminated from within. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

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

Liked the camping theme


When I saw this, I wanted to get it for my husband who loves camping. The design is nice, but when I received it, somehow the quality of it seemed cheap. Maybe it is because it is glow in the dark and does not have as nice grooves and embossing as other coins. I am glad I did not get the set.


Toronto, ON


Excellent unique design.


Gift to coin collectors.
