Design:

Your coin's design is based on a photograph by Matt Eggink of Parliament Hill's Peace Tower and features a unique Colour Reveal that lights up by use of a black light. These colours are based on the projections on the Peace Tower in the final section of Northern Lights, the sound and light show on Parliament Hill. The obverse design features Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll by Susanna Blunt.

I thought it was important to capture a perspective that is realistic to a spectator's view as they watch the light show.” Matt Eggink, Artist
