Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Stéphanie Gauvin, your coin presents a striking artistic rendition of a quintessentially Canadian winter landscape, from the snow-covered trees and mountain peak to the wood ski chalet that is nestled at the heart of it all. Even as the winter sun sets on an activity-filled day, the chalet's rustic charm adds another welcoming element to the beauty of the Rocky Mountains and the tranquility of its setting. The use of extensive colours—from a winter-cool palette of blues, violets, and greens to the rich brown wood hues—recreates the playful way that light transforms the winter landscape as the fading sun sets on one of the season's brightest days.

Did you know…
  • The Rocky Mountains are home to many top-ranked ski destinations that offer breathtaking scenery, wide terrain and activities for people of all ages.
  • The scene was inspired by the beauty of the British Columbia Interior—specifically the Kootenay region, where powdery snow creates wonderful conditions for winter activities.
  • An estimated 2.5 million Canadians either ski or snowboard.
  • Skiing has a long history, dating back thousands of years ago when it was used as a means of transportation across snow-covered terrain.
  • The word ski itself can trace its origins to Norway, and is derived from the Old Norse word skīth, meaning "a stick of wood" or a board.

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