5 oz. Pure Silver Coin – Designed by Adam Young


Your coin features a mix of different symbols that inspire pride for the land Canadians call home! Order today!

Designed by Canadian artist Adam Young, your coin features a composition of pride-evoking icons that represent Canada in many different ways. From top to bottom, each of the 13 layers of stone symbolizes a Canadian province or territory. Water wraps around this rock formation to connect each coast, where the pine trees represent a natural resource that has provided much revenue and inspired many works of Canadian art. The canoe pays homage to the First Peoples of Canada, while reflecting on the way many Canadians originally arrived to these shores. At the top of it all, the inunnguaq symbolizes Canada’s spirit, strength and determination; its legs form a window that frames the North Star, which radiates like a lighthouse beacon that provides safety, guidance and a luminous welcome to these shores. The composition intentionally mimics the shape of a maple leaf, including the paddle that forms the leaf’s petiole. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

    I bought this coin to add to my Adam Young collection. While not as colourful as his paintings, it is stunning. This is a substantial size coin and the symbolism of everything Canadian has been brilliantly incorporated all over the coin. Beautiful! Congratulations Adam on having been selected by the RCM to design this coin. You certainly did not disappoint.
