The hologram lends exciting depth and movement to the design.

The reverse design features an achromatic hologram image of a Canadian astronaut floating weightlessly above the Earth. The astronaut is anchored to a foot restraint on Canadarm2, which bears the Canada Wordmark. In the distance we see the cloud-mottled blue surface of Earth, backed by the black depths of space. The hologram lends depth and movement to the design; the astronaut seems to float above the Earth.
