Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Jan Poynter, your coin combines quintessential elements of the Pacific Coast to create this fictional scene of a cougar approaching a stream on a snow-covered shoreline. Moonlight defines the cougar's silhouette, and dances on the water and snow. The majestic cat is looking towards the right, as if it has spotted its quarry in the distance. Behind the cougar, subtle shades of blue and gold paint a silent, snow-covered landscape of islands rising up from the calm waters of an inlet. A mountain range spans the horizon, its peaks visible in the moonlight. The moon also illuminates the clouds, and stars fill the gaps between them.

Did you know…
  • The cougar is the largest of three wild cat species found in Canada, distinguishable from the lynx and bobcat by its metre-long tail that can leave scuff marks in the snow.
  • The cougar is highly adaptive and can live in many of the diverse habitats across Canada from east to west, north to 60°; from sea level to 4500 m—as long as there is enough food and sufficient cover for stalking and making a den.
  • A growing number of cougar sightings from Ontario to the Maritimes suggest the cougar is making a comeback in the East, supported by the recovering populations of white-tailed deer, its preferred prey.
  • The elusive cougar can hunt night or day, but its exceptional night vision gives it a key advantage for stalking in the dark. It will get as close as possible before bursting from its cover with lightning speed and then leaping onto its prey, sometimes covering as much as 6 m in a single bound!
