DESIGN
The one-dollar coin in this 2017 specimen set features a snow goose in flight. The dramatic image, designed by Canadian artist Derek C. Wicks, presents the goose from above with its wings flapped forward as it prepares to land on a lake below. The engravers’ expert technique brings to life every detail of the stunning outspread wings, large-billed face, and strong body. The wings seem to encircle an outcropping of snow-capped evergreens on the shore below. As with all Canadian “loonies,” this exceptionally well-designed image is framed by the loonie’s characteristic 11-sided circumference. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
