Design:

Canadian artist Steve Hepburn has created a dynamic design that focuses on a pair of hikers selectively enhanced with colour to draw the viewer in to explore The Great Trail of Canada. The hikers are walking away from the viewer, towards the centre of the coin where the logo for the Trans Canada Trail is depicted in full colour. A series of vignettes along the outer edge of the design illustrate the Trail's diverse landscapes and the popular ways in which the Trail can be explored. Clockwise from the upper right corner: agricultural lands nestled in foothills; cycling along a rural trail; canoeing through wetlands, with horseback riding above; backpacking across rocky terrain where colourful wildflowers fill the open spaces; snowmobiling up a hill; cross-country skiing across open terrain with snow-covered evergreens.

Packaging:

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

First off, it is a bit disconcerting that the Mint points out that there is no GST or HST, but is then diligent in collecting state sales tax. If I had bought the coin in Vancouver, I would have paid none, and, much more importantly, I would have seen the coin first and would not be wondering if the speck on the top back is on the coin or the case. The coin truly is beautiful, and it is a great memento of this past summer's vacation activities. Next time, I will buy the coin in Canada and carry it with me on vacation.

I have been collecting Mint offerings for many years. This articulate coin is very unique. There are very few rectangular coins ever made available. This is a unique treasure that I will be glad to pass onto my children.
