DESIGN
Based on a photograph taken by Canadian wilderness photographer Peter Mather, the reverse features vibrant colour over the detailed engraved image of nature’s most colourful light display in Yukon. Heavy snow lines the edges of McIntyre Creek in Whitehorse, YT, where the towering conifers are reflected in the still waters below. On this quiet winter night, the beauty of the northern scenery is heightened by the luminous green and pink hues of the aurora borealis overhead, as it dances across the night sky and lights up the landscape below. The reverse also features the engraved word “CANADA” and the dates “1867-2017” to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.
