The Arctic char's bold and fighting spirit is legendary among anglers. A long-standing food source among the Aboriginal peoples, it is typically silver-white in colour, but when it's spawning it turns to vibrant shades of orange, red and gold—a breathtaking show that is revealed to full effect on this coin.

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Curtis Atwater, your coin features the Arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus) towards the end of its migratory journey, from the saline waters along the Arctic coastline to the freshwater rivers and lakes of Northern Canada. The engraved background offers an underwater view of this distinctive species as two Arctic char hover just beneath the water's surface, while a third in the foreground remains close to the pebble and gravel-lined riverbed. Selective colour brings to life the spotted, bright orange tint of this spawning adult, while intricate engraving offers a detailed view of its fins and upwardly protruding lower jaw.


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

It is a beautiful coin. I enjoy fishing.


I have it placed in a coin album designed for unique coins such as this one. This protects it and allows for viewing whenever I desire. I tend to gravitate to animals and astronomy subject. Being colored and using unique minting methods adds greatly to coins in my opinion. Let's not forget that the low mintage is also attractive.
