Design & Artist

Jesse Koreck, Artist

"This coin energetically illustrates the molecular wonder of insulin and is a true celebration of Canadian scientific innovation."

Jesse Koreck, Artist

Grant Maltman, Curator, Banting House National Historic Site of Canada, Diabetes Canada

“The importance of symbols and their power to motivate cannot be underestimated. The multilayered approach this coin uses to illustrate the insulin hormone and the science behind its discovery uniquely commemorates this defining moment in Canadian medical science. As we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin, we are reminded that while we may have better insulin today, the search for the cure for diabetes continues.”

Grant Maltman, Curator, Banting House National Historic Site of Canada, Diabetes Canada

Erica Maga, Product Manager

“The impact that the discovery of insulin has had on the global community cannot be overstated. Working on this project has given me a new appreciation for how this Canadian innovation has affected the lives of millions of people over the course of a century.”

Erica Maga, Product Manager

Traian Georgescu, Engraver

“I had a lot of fun engraving a variety of elements. For example, how do you capture the transparency of glass? The solution was to sculpt the beaker in the negative space and the liquid in the positive space. We even have micro text engraved on the label of the insulin bottle, which was a challenge in itself, and CNC Technician Pascal Clément did a fantastic job with that.”
