Gliding smoothly over calm waters, a paddling excursion offers stunning views of the changing landscapes that line Quebec's lakes and rivers. Hills, cliffs, forests and marshes—the stretches of untamed wilderness seem scarcely touched by time; one could easily imagine this was how the land appeared to early explorers and voyageurs, as they paddled into the annals of Canadian history. Today, these fjords, rivers, and lakes are all a treasured part of Quebec's natural heritage and provide a recreational playground for outdoor enthusiasts who seek solitude, a renewed connection with nature, and peace of mind.

Design:

Based on a photograph by Canadian nature photographer Daniel Dagenais, your coin offers a first-person perspective of a kayak excursion on a river in Quebec. In the crisp morning air, the clouded sunrise and the fog rolling off the steep cliffs add to the sense of stillness in the air. The application of vibrant colour over engraving recreates the life-like qualities of the original photograph, in which the stern of the bright blue kayak contrasts with the muted green and grey colours of the untamed landscape. The reverse also features the engraved word "CANADA" and the dates "1867-2017" to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.


Packaging:

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