Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Denis Mayer Jr., your coin features two puffins along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. The design depicts two puffins standing side by side on top of rocks with lichens and daisy flowers in the background. The year “2019” is indicated on the left side next to the adult puffin; on top, the word “CANADA” and the purity of “99999 Au” are engraved on the coin’s reverse, along with the artist’s initials, “DM”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt and a denomination of “200 DOLLARS”

Did you know…
  • The puffin’s penguin-like look changes dramatically between breeding and non-breeding seasons: in the winter, its beak is a dull grey to match the dreary winter; in the spring, it seems to burst with colour! In the past, this led many observers to think they were two different species.
  • The puffin might have wings but it is a horrible flier – its wings need to flap up to 400 beats per minute just to stay in the air! They’re also known for crash-landing more often than not, and will easily knock over other puffins that might be standing in their landing path.
  • In the water, they’re strong swimmers! Their webbed feet act like rudders but remarkably, they can dive to a depth of 61 metres and can hold their breath for up to one minute underwater!
  • Feeling hungry? A puffin will dive into the water to scoop out as many fish as it can in one take. It will usually grab an average of 10 fish at a time, but it’s been known to net up to 60 in a single dive!

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
