The squeals of children sledding down a hillside, the crunch of fresh snow underfoot—these are the sounds that we associate with the holiday season in Canada! Together with the breathtaking scenery, they bring to mind memories of seasons past and present, and the fun to be had whenever Canadians flock outside to take advantage of our very own winter wonderland—as depicted on this colourful lenticular keepsake, whose cheerful reverse will warm your heart.


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.
