Selective gold plating adds to your SQUARE-shaped celebration of the Pacific Coast! Order today!

Your journey begins in the west, where selective gold plating adds a golden hue to the setting sun that centres this tribute to Canada’s West Coast. The splash of sunshine extends to the Kermode bear, one of several engraved icons that represent land, sea and sky on the gold-framed reverse—a powerful reminder that the whole of nature, all that surrounds us, is beautifully interconnected.

An ideal coin for someone who enjoys a fun take on the Pacific Coast. Order today!

Special features:
  • THE FIRST IN A LIMITED 3-COIN SERIES! Your coin is the first in a series of three that explores the longest coastline in the world, and the three oceans that line Canada’s shores!
  • YOUR COIN IS A SQUARE! Canadian Coasts is a limited series of three square-shaped coins that are a combined tribute to the longest coastline in the world! Each square coin represents one of the oceans that line Canada’s shores: Pacific, Arctic, and Atlantic!
  • BIG ON DETAILS! At (27 mm), your engraved coin is incredibly detailed, as evidenced by the markings on the orca!
  • AN INTRICATE TOUCH OF GOLD! Fittingly, gold plating adds a radiant hue to the setting sun, which in turn “illuminates” the Kermode bear and the rim that frames the reverse. Given the amount of minute details, this artistic touch is an extraordinary feat that required a high level of precision!
  • RICH IN SYMBOLISM, ANY WAY YOU LOOK AT IT! Representing land, sea and sky, the highly symbolic images are arranged in a concentric pattern that also resembles the points of a compass. The design is the same, even when you turn the coin!
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER! Your 99.99% pure silver coin is beautifully enhanced with an exquisite proof finish that accentuates every design element to maximum effect.
  • NO GST/HST!

Design:

Designed by Maurade Baynton, the setting sun is at the centre of your coin’s design. Selective gold plating adds a warm, golden hue to the stylized representation of the sun, which evokes images or memories of spectacular sunsets along Canada’s Pacific Coast. The sun’s warmth and beauty radiates outwards, towards the intricately engraved icons that form a concentric pattern around the centre, much like a compass. As though warmed by the sunlight, the Kermode bear (Ursus americanus kermodei) or spirit bear that famously inhabits British Columbia’s coastal rainforests is also highlighted with selective gold plating. The sailboat represents the sailing tradition along British Columbia’s coast, be it recreational or for fishing, while another great cultural icon, the orca (Orcinus orca), symbolizes our timeless connection with the sea. Gold plating also highlights the rim that frames the reverse, to reinforce the idea that everything in nature is beautifully interconnected. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • The Kermode bear is British Columbia’s official animal emblem! Surprisingly, this white- or cream-coloured bear is a subspecies of the black bear—its colouring is due to a recessive gene. This “spirit bear” is only found in the world’s largest coastal temperate rainforest, the Great Bear Rainforest, which lines British Columbia’s central and northern coast.
  • The orca is popularly known as a “killer whale,” a name given by ancient fishermen. It is the largest member of the dolphin family, and figures prominently in the cultural traditions of the people of the Northwest Coast.

Packaging:

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