The reverse designs of the coins in the set include. The reverse design by Canadian artist Ken Ryan uses selective color over engraving to create a timeless portrait of a firefighter in the line of duty. In the engraved background, flames and smoke pour out of a residential home as the firefighter emerges in the foreground; he is depicted in full turnout gear, including a red helmet with visor and a tan-colored jacket with reflective yellow-green and silver trim.
Beneath the visor, the firefighters self-contained breathing apparatus is visible this protects him from the dangers of exposure and smoke inhalation in a fiery environment. In his right hand, the firefighter holds the bolt cutters that help him enter the burning building to search for any trapped occupants; his left hand cradles a dog he has rescued from inside the home and is carrying to safety. The reverse design by Canadian artist Ken Ryan uses selective color over detailed engraving in this snapshot of paramedics in action. Engraved in the background is a rear view of an ambulance, its doors open wide just moments after arriving at a hospitals ambulance bay. In the foreground, vibrant color highlights the paramedics in their dark uniforms, complete with bright yellow and silver reflective bands just below the knees.
Their faces are intent and convey the pressing nature of their important role; they are quick to unload the yellow-colored stretcher from the ambulance before rushing toward the building, which will allow the patient to receive the continuum of medical care she desperately needs. The reverse design by Canadian artist Ken Ryan uses selective color over detailed engraving in this detailed rendition of a police officer in action. Engraved in the background is an iconic police car parked on the side of a paved roadway, at the edge of an open space where a few trees dot the rolling landscape. Selective color brings to life the dark blue uniform of the police officer in the foreground, along with the red striping on the pants and the band around the peaked police cap.
Responding to a crime in progress, the officer sprints into action with right hand stretched towards the equipment belt that is within easy reach, while the left hand brings a whistle to the officers lips. The reverse design by Canadian artist Ken Ryan uses selective color over engraving to create a portrait of bravery in action. In the engraved background, trees and branches hang overhead in this woodland setting, where military helicopters are taking part in rescue operations in an area of conflict. In the foreground, an infantry soldier in combat clothing extends his hand and reaches out to help the viewer, almost pulling us into the dynamic design, while the other gloved hand keeps a tight grip on the rappelling rope. The red-and-white colors of the Canadian flag patch on the upper left sleeve stand out against the green, brown and black camouflage pattern on the helmet and uniform, while the soldier keeps his expression intently focused on the dangerous situation at hand.
