Symbols of strength, beauty and resilience, the animals of the North are the proud emblems of our Arctic region.

Designed by Inuit artist Andrew Qappik, the engraved reverse highlights some of the diverse wildlife that embodies the spirit of Northern Canada. Land, sea and sky are represented in this Arctic-themed collage, which features the walrus, ptarmigan, polar bear, bowhead whale and narwhal. All are framed by the outline of a maple leaf shape that symbolizes a nation’s pride and reverence for these great northern icons.
