WHIMSICAL AND ENDEARING
Fun holiday traditions and seasonal activities are the stuff of childhood memories, and this coin’s colourful design is a celebration of that.
MOTION FILLED REVERSE
The scene features lenticular technology that allows for the seamless transition between two interlaced images to create a sense of uninterrupted motion: tip the coin to change your viewing angle and send this pair sliding down the hill!
DID YOU KNOW?
The arctic hare (Lepus arcticus) is able to stand on its hind legs and hop around like a kangaroo, but if it senses danger, it will quickly bolt at speeds of up to 60 kilometres per hour! It runs faster than the polar bear (Ursus maritimus), which can run up to 40 kilometres per hour – but only for a short distance. And both of these animals are faster than us: the average running speed for a human is only about 8-9 kilometres per hour.
Your coin’s colourful reverse features a scene enhanced with lenticular technology, which creates a sense of motion by interlacing two colour images. Designed by illustrator Darren Booth, both images capture the thrill of sledding – a popular winter activity in Canada – on a snowy winter night during the holiday season, as indicated by the decorated trees in the background. A polar bear (Ursus maritimus) and an arctic hare (Lepus arcticus) are friends in this light-hearted depiction; when viewed from a slightly different angle, the hare has hopped onto the bear’s sled to join in the fun as they slide down the hill. 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.
