2012 Canada $5 Rick Hansen's Man-In-Motion Tour Anniversary (NO Tax)

The majority of the field of the coin is filled with finely engraved lines that visually represent the new paths Hansen laid to cut through limiting perceptions of physical disability and his key principles: "journey, inspire, dream, together, involvement," and, of course, "anything is possible." These fine lines are impressive and display the precision and excellence of the minting process of the Royal Canadian Mint.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the completion of the Man-In-Motion World Tour. Celebrations include the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay, which retraces the Canadian route of Rick's original tour and the Interdependence 2012 Conference for global best practices and collaboration in spinal cord injury research.

Coin is encapsulated and presented in a branded Royal Canadian Mint maroon clamshell case lined with black flock and protected by custom sleeve inspired by the coin's design.

An exceptional way to commemorate an event that has changed the face of physical disability in Canada and around the world and brought hope to millions through enhanced research, collaboration, legislation, and public discourse.
