The reverse design by Tony Bianco captures both the practical and spiritual essence of a symbol of “the True North, strong and free.” Reverse gold plating fills the field and gives the coin its rich, golden hue, while precision engraving re-creates the rocky northern landscape. At the centre, an Inuit stone marker rises up from a mound; the silver surface of the coin adds extra shine to this human-like landmark, which carries special significance as a communication tool and a hunting and navigational aid for the Inuit. Built from stacked stones of different sizes, this inukshuk stands like the guardian of its northern lands, its open arms pointing the way to the north as the stylized aurora borealis dances overhead.
