Combining two Canadian icons, this silver piedfort coin represents Canada's past and future.
The coin's design
The selectively gold plated coin is split into two halves - one exceptionally detailed and realistic, the other elegantly simple. The difference in style represents the evolving history of Canada. The classic depictions on the left half represent the past, while the stylised silhouettes of the right side look to the future. Arching over the design is the word CANADA, and curving beneath is 25 DOLLARS and 2018.
The reverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, as well as the words QUEEN ELIZABETH II and D.G REGINA.
This pure silver piedfort is twice as thick as a regular coin.
