With expressive features and a ghostly aura, few Arctic species are quite as distinctive as the beluga.

Selective gold plating offers an elegant tribute to this beloved whale species, which has long been integral to human survival and cultural traditions in Canada's Far North.

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco, your coin's image peers into the waters off Canada's northern coast for a glimpse of an iconic marine species. The engraved word "CANADA" hangs above a rugged mountain peak, which rises up from the snow and ice-covered shores of the Arctic Ocean. Sweeping over the increasingly shallow water, the breaking swell adds a sense of movement to the design; the motion of the water's surface also marks a dynamic transition to the underwater realm, where detailed engraving recreates the rock-lined ocean floor. The selective use of gold plating shines the spotlight on three engraved whales: an adult beluga (Delphinapterus leucas) on the left is shown in side profile as it curiously lifts its head above the water; another lifts its flukes above water while releasing a stream of underwater bubbles from its blowhole, while its curved descent is mimicked by the calf at its side.

Packaging:

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