Canada's national identity is much like its majestic landscape: diverse, storied, and sometimes elusive. In the ever-changing tectonics of Canadian culture, identifiers tend to reflect the nation's natural assets and social and political institutions. Born of this complex background, Canadian icons are distinct because they carry meaning for all Canadians, regardless of where we live or how we came to be here. These are the images that plumb the depths of Canadian pride and kindle Canadians' love for their home.
• Coins in this subscription series include images of the Beaver, Polar Bear, Caribou, Wolf and Orca, and are available as part of this subscription.

Design: Designed by Canadian artist Pierre Leduc, your first coin in this subscription features a portrait of a beaver mother and two kits. The mother is viewed from behind with the right side of her body set in profile, gazing at her two small kits who nestle in the curve of their mother's tail and body. The adult's iconic leathery tail is fully visible, its scale-like surface rendered in textural detail. In the background, you see the beavers' home pond with a twig structure. In the far distance, the shoreline is dotted with the leafy deciduous trees, which are preferred by the beaver. Framing the reverse image is an outer band featuring the word "CANADA," the date "2013," and the face value of "25 DOLLARS," as well as a small stylized beaver paw print symbol.
Packaging: Each coin is encapsulated and will be shipped in a die-cut with its serialized certificate of authenticity. The subscription case is a wooden case lined with black flock with an insert that can be lifted to prominently display your coins. The case is protected by a theme-coloured custom beauty box.
