The second Wondrous Waters coin invites you to head due north.

Canada’s coastline is the longest in the world and two-thirds of it lies in the Arctic. Most of this coastline wraps around the many islands that lie near the top of the world, such as Baffin Island and the Queen Elizabeth Islands. Nowhere is the connection between land and sea more evident than along our vast northern coast, where life follows the seasonal cycle of sea ice—a critical habitat for polar bears, seals and more. As represented on our second This Is Canada: Wondrous Waters coin, the Arctic coast is teeming with hidden wonders and endless beauty—from iconic wildlife to the tundra landscape that comes alive each summer, and the cultural ways that have left a deep imprint on Canada’s northern identity.

Coin #2: This is our Arctic coast. This is Canada.

While the Arctic Ocean is the smallest and shallowest of the world’s oceans, Canada’s Arctic and northern region is incredibly vast—it represents nearly 40 percent of this country’s total landmass and freshwater.

Berry picking and gathering wild plants is an important cultural activity in Inuit Nunangat, especially in late summer and fall. Arctic cranberries, blueberries, cloudberries and crowberries are some of the most commonly picked varieties.

Canada’s Arctic is home to beluga whales and narwhals, as well as two-thirds of the world’s polar bear population.

Your coin’s reverse presents an artistic representation of Canada’s Arctic coast. Designed by Inuvialuit artist Myrna Pokiak and inspired by the artist’s experiences, the moonlit scene features a berry picker to represent traditional foods and harvest activities on land, where the flat tundra is punctuated by a pingo. A snowy owl has taken flight and the tail of a beluga whale appears in the water that lines the shore, which is marked by caribou tracks and those of a polar bear. The beach is also lined with driftwood carried to the Arctic coast by rivers and ocean currents, making it a symbol of interconnectedness. Compass elements form a frame that contains the word “CANADA” and a face value of “20 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of His Majesty King Charles III by Canadian artist Steven Rosati.


The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world. The Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint opened in 1908 and was renamed The Royal Canadian Mint in 1931 when control was transferred to the Canadian government. The Royal Canadian Mint is renowned for producing some of the highest quality and purity of gold and silver bullion coins and bars in the world. Their high standards for excellence and quality allowed them to be the first refinery to manufacture 9999 fine gold bullion coins in 1982, as well as the first to reach 99999 fine gold purity in 1998.
