Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn, your coin features a powerfully symbolic collage of flora and fauna species that are commonly associated with Canada's provinces and territories. The rotating design allows for a continuous view of these natural icons, which speak of the diversity of life across our great land and in our skies.

Beneath the engraved word "CANADA" are precision-engraved depictions of the following birds and animals (clockwise): a snowy owl (Quebec); the caribou (Newfoundland and Labrador); the Plains bison (Manitoba); the common raven (Yukon); a Canadian Inuit dog (Nunavut); the rock ptarmigan (Nunavut); the black-capped chickadee (New Brunswick); the white-tailed deer (Saskatchewan); the gyrfalcon (Northwest Territories); the common loon (Ontario); the osprey (Nova Scotia); the Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep (Alberta); the great horned owl (Alberta); the blue jay (Prince Edward Island); the spirit bear (British Columbia); and the Atlantic puffin (Newfoundland and Labrador).

Moving towards the centre, these wildlife icons are harmoniously grounded by a wreath of floral and arboreal emblems (l-r): the blue flag iris (Quebec); the prairie crocus (Manitoba); the fireweed (Yukon); the western red lily (Saskatchewan); the balsam fir (New Brunswick), which is positioned between the chickadee and the ptarmigan; the mountain avens (Northwest Territories); the eastern white pine (Ontario); the mayflower (Nova Scotia); the lady's slipper (Prince Edward Island); and the Pacific dogwood (British Columbia).

At the centre of it all, a maple leaf is struck to anchor the circular collage and represent a nation's strong sense of identity and pride. The reverse also features the engraved face value "30 DOLLARS" and the year "2017".

Packaging:

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

Is this coin a continuation of the $200 for $200 series but in a new form ?

Jim

Over the last five years, the Face Value Program helped increase awareness of our products and now that the market is more familiar with coin collecting, the Mint is instead promoting its core numismatic program, from affordably-priced, entry-level products to high-end-collectibles, to continue attracting new customers and converting them into collectors.

Why aren't other images used on the coins instead of the queen ?

Thank you for your interest. Below is a link to our website that has a great historical explanation as to why we have an "effigy" on our coins. http://www.mint.ca/store/mint/learn/faces-of-the-monarch-1100026#.WZrrYmyWx9A

How can you tell it is a 150 celebration coin from the design? The centra maple leaf is not a official 150 symbolic leaf and there is not a 150 or 1867 indication.

Thank you for your interest in this coin. The coin features a powerfully symbolic collage of flora and fauna species that are commonly associated with Canada's provinces and territories. There is no Canada 150 marking but the inspiring collage is itself a pride-provoking reminder of the rich diversity of life in Canada-a powerful sentiment expressed by the maple leaf at its centre!
