Designed by artist Caitlin Lindstrom-Milne, your coin’s reverse features a composite of landscape features from across Canada, framed by the outline of a black maple (Acer nigrum) leaf and backed by Canada geese (Branta canadensis) flying in a V formation—a sign of the changing seasons in Canada. The four-season view begins with a spring scene on the left, where a tundra swan (Cygnus columbianus) swims past flowery meadows and mountains under a colourful morning sky. The scene transitions to a bright summer day, as a grizzly bear (Ursus arctos horribilis) catches its next meal. Beneath the migrating geese in the sky, the green foliage turns to red, orange, brown and yellow in the fall view, in which the setting sun casts its glow on the grasslands and the iconic bison (Bison bison). The final view, with its sleepy Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus), captures the tranquil beauty of winter in Canada, while an iceberg adrift in the ocean hints at the eventual return of spring.
The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
