The reverse design by Canadian artist Jamie Desrochers captures the celebratory spirit of a nation in 2017. Viewed from a unique perspective, the map of Canada has a distinctive dimensional feel to it as the viewer’s eye sweeps across the nation. The focal point itself is the large “150” at the centre; superimposed on the map, the “150” is as large as the nature of the celebrations commemorating the 150th anniversary of Confederation. Below it, the words “CANADA”, “DOLLAR” and commemorative dates “1867-2017” are also engraved in Heritage Canada’s official font for the occasion, alongside the CANADA 150 logo. Behind it all is Canada’s national flag, rendered in laser frosting that gives it an ethereal feel—a fitting way to convey the swelling sense of pride and patriotism that, though unseen, can be found within Canadian hearts during this momentous year.
