About the Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Glen Loates, your coin features selective colour over the engraved side-profile portrait of a baby loon, or chick, swimming at the edge of a lake in Algonquin Park. The brown-black downy feathers are given a soft appearance through detailed engraving as the chick splashes about in the water, flapping its wings and raising its webbed feet. The colour extends to the purple flowers and green-stemmed leaves of the pickerelweed in the foreground and behind the engraved adult female, which tenderly remains at the young loon's side during its first weeks of life.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
