Designed by Canadian artist Emily S. Damstra, your coin portrays the original loon design of Canada’s 1-dollar circulation coin in a unique way. The common loon is depicted from behind as it spreads its wings in a territorial display, one of the species’ most elegant and recognizable poses. The loon, viewed sitting in the rippling lake waters, faces a lake shore densely wooded with the Canadian boreal forest’s characteristic mix of evergreen and deciduous trees. Your reverse proof finish silver Lucky Loonie also features, to the left of the lakeshore in the upper left-hand segment of the reverse side, a coloured Canadian Olympic Team logo, in celebration and support of Canada’s athletes as they prepare for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games and Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with black beauty box.
