Design:

Designed by by Jori van der Linde, your coin features a side-profile view of a caribou against a mountain backdrop, re-imagined in the style of mosaic art. Detailed engraving divides the image into different-sized segments resembling tile mosaic. Colour Mosaic technology adds luminous colours, as the eye moves from the glassy blue sky intermixed with the coin’s own proof finish, to the more opaque colours of the caribou. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Packaging:

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