About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Glen Loates, your coin features selective colour over the engraved side-profile portrait of a baby loon, or chick, swimming at the edge of a lake in Algonquin Park. The brown-black downy feathers are given a soft appearance through detailed engraving as the chick splashes about in the water, flapping its wings and raising its webbed feet. The colour extends to the purple flowers and green-stemmed leaves of the pickerelweed in the foreground and behind the engraved adult female, which tenderly remains at the young loon's side during its first weeks of life.

Packaging:

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