Chris Brackley, Freelance Cartographer

“My favourite maps evoke the places they are designed to represent. And though I was working with a small canvas in designing this coin, my palette was expanded beyond colour into 3D relief and the glassy finishes of pure silver. The result is a landscape that rises and falls with a symphony of colour, while the Great Lakes themselves lie smooth and reflective— just like the oceans of freshwater they are designed to represent.”

Chris Brackley, Freelance Cartographer

Fisheries and Oceans Canada

”The Great Lakes are the largest freshwater system on the planet. The lakes contain about 23,000 cubic kilometres of water and hold roughly 20% of the world’s freshwater. With over 160 species of freshwater fish living in the waters of the Great Lakes, the watershed supports a vast array of plant and animal species. Over 8.5 million Canadians live in the Great Lakes basin. They are also an economic driver, creating jobs in a number of industries such as agriculture, recreation and tourism. Commerce on the Great Lakes generates $35 billion annually in Canada and the US. There are truly thousands of points of interest on the Great Lakes. They are a unique treasure to be preserved and enjoyed by all Canadians.”
