Design:

Designed by artist Joel Kimmel, the coins in this set feature five of Canada’s endemic animals: Johansen’s Sulphur (Colias johanseni), Peary caribou (Rangifer tarandus pearyi), Copper redhorse (Moxostoma hubbsi), Vancouver Island marmot (Marmota vancouverensis) and Kermode bear (Ursus americanus kermodei). Our 2019 Canada’s Wildlife Treasures was made possible with the collaboration of the Toronto Zoo. From breeding programs to educational activities, Canada’s largest zoo is fighting wildlife extinction while inspiring Canadians to protect our natural environment—for today and for the future.

“It is so important to preserve biodiversity on this planet and as Canadians, we are the guardians of the plants and animals found only in our country. We need Canadians from coast to coast to coast to work together to learn about these species and do everything we can to preserve these National treasures. The Royal Canadian Mint is doing its part by producing the Canadian endemic animal coin collection showcasing some of the magnificent animals that call Canada home to help raise awareness.” Dolf DeJong, CEO, Toronto Zoo

Some wild facts…
  • Canada has about 286 endemic species.
  • Many of Canada’s endemic animals may be easily over-looked on account of their size. They include various insects, such as flies, bees, ants, beetles, and grasshoppers, but also spiders, slugs, and snails.
  • Many of these invertebrates (i.e. animals without backbones) might not be considered as charismatic as a large mammal, like a bear, but they provide critical ecosystem services needed by all life on Earth. Others, such as butterflies, are good at capturing our attention.
