  • 25¢ – HOPE FOR A GREEN FUTURE:
    Joelle Wong shares a child's hope for Canada's abundant nature to be preserved for years to come. Its playful design features a pair of hands bringing life to a plant that connects all living things — represented by some notable Canadian animals.
  • $1 – CONNECTING A NATION:
    Wesley Klassen pays tribute to the railways that have brought our country together — and the many impressive landmarks along Canada's rail routes.
  • $2 – DANCE OF THE SPIRITS:
    Timothy Hsia celebrates the wonders of Canada with an evocative design featuring the Northern Lights — which the Cree peoples called "the dance of the spirits".

Will the $2 Glow in the Dark Coin be found in General Circulation?

Allen

Hello and thank you for your question! Yes, there will be both the coloured and un-coloured $2 coins released into general circulation. The $2 coin in general circulation will glow in the dark.

Erica (Product Team)

the odds of it actually glowing in the dark or remaining glow in the dark may vary overtime as the coating may wear off as with many printed ink coins..keep an eye out and save it
