Designed by Canadian artist Yves Bérubé, your coin features an iconic Arctic structure: the igloo. The image presents an Inuit man lifting a freshly cut ice block in front of his igloo. Working with strength and precision in sub-zero temperatures, he constructs his snow house and then removes ice blocks from the structure’s interior floor to expand its interior space and build the rounded tunnel that will cover the igloo’s entrance and keep cold air at bay.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a custom beauty box & certicicate of authenticity.
