INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE: The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN. Designed by Alisha Giroux, your coin is a re-imagining of the map of Canada, with stylized birds or mammals forming the shape of each province and territory it represents.From left to right, these icons of the Canadian wilderness include: a raven (Yukon), Kermode bear (British Columbia), gyrfalcon (Northwest Territories), bighorn sheep (Alberta), white-tailed deer (Saskatchewan), Canadian Inuit dog (Nunavut), plains bison (Manitoba), common loon (Ontario), snowy owl (Quebec), chickadee (New Brunswick), osprey (Nova Scotia), blue jay (Prince Edward Island), and woodland caribou (Newfoundland and Labrador). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Having always seen animals and other creatures in the provincial shapes that make up my country, I expanded on this idea to create an illustrated map of Canada. Each province and territory is reimagined as an animal or bird, all while keeping true to the shapes and borders. It's a surreal experience to see your artwork minted onto a coin, and I'm immensely grateful for the opportunity.
