They are the timeless scenes that have come to represent Canada: the rugged coastline; the lakes and forests that give it a wild, untamed quality; the agricultural landscape of the Prairies; the Rocky Mountains that once made the land seem unfathomable; and the Arctic emblems of “the True North strong and free.”

From one coast to another, Canadians share a common iconography that powerfully reflects our history, geography, and natural legacy. Each of these visual elements carries deep meaning; when combined together, they convey the soaring spirit of a nation, and inspire everlasting pride among the diverse people who call Canada “home.”

A great gift that represents Canada and Canadians—at home and abroad! Order your coin today!

Design:

Designed by Steve Hepburn, your coin presents a cross-country journey that ties together some of Canada's most iconic images—particularly those that have come to define the Canadian experience, and the landscape itself. The upper portion features that celebrated emblem of Canada's Pacific coast, the orca whale. The scene transitions smoothly to the northern coastline of the Canadian Arctic, which is represented by an inukshuk and a polar bear with cub. Beneath these are the majestic Rocky Mountains, which once made the land seem impenetrable to early European explorers. The peaks tower over the vast boreal forest on the left, which stretches across much of Canada, and the agricultural landscape of the Prairie provinces on the right, where a tractor is at work in a hay field. Atlantic Canada is represented by a Nova Scotian/New Brunswick Herring Seiner, which slightly overlaps the stirring image of a raised Canadian flag blowing in the wind. Finally, the nation's northern climate is represented by the heartwarming image of two youths playing Canada's beloved winter sport: hockey.

Did you know…
  • As the second-largest country (after Russia), Canada has the longest coastline in the world.
  • Canada also has more lakes than the rest of the world combined! Approximately 60% of the planet's lakes lie within our boundaries.

Packaging:

Folder-style packaging offers an easy way to store for posterity or display with pride and share with your family and friends.

spifman

Ashley (Product Team)

Why is the flag flying backwards? I was always taught that indicated a sign of distress.

kitscat

The beauty in our Canadian flag is no matter which way the wind blows our flag is always perfect.

Ashley (Product Team)

Why is the maple leaf on the Canadian flag the reverse of its usual format? white leaf on dark background, white side bars?

proud Canadian

Unfortunately a 2 dimensional image does not look like the coin does in real life and therefore it looks darker due to lighting. The video of this coin shows a better representation of the finishes.

Ashley (Product Team)

Why no Native Canadian representation in this Spirit of Canada coin

slimjim

This coin's design represents symbols of Canada from Coast to Coast to Coast, including an Indigenous icon of an Inukshuk.
