2014 Canada 25-cent 2014 FIFA World Cup Coloured Coin

In 2014, the FIFA World Cup™ is being hosted in Brazil. This exciting event is closely watched by millions of fans around the globe, intertwining national pride, international sportsmanship and love of the game. Canadians, too, are riveted by the FIFA World Cup™ including the hundreds of thousands of young people here who play soccer for fun and for sport.

The colourful reverse image by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn presents a dynamic stylized pastiche of soccer images. Dominating the image is a soccer player, right leg thrown back to make a powerful kick. The player's target is a large soccer ball upon which a map of Canada replaces one of the dark patches. Below the image of the player, three young children play soccer in a field of grass - a boy prepares to kick the ball while two girls approach him from either side; all the young players are dressed in the sport's recognizable uniform of long shorts, jersey, tall socks, and soccer cleats. In the upper right corner of the image, backed by a cheery yellow sunburst, a large stylized image of a Canadian crowd, arms extended to the sky, waving flags and pennants and flanked by swirling maple leaves, is reminiscent of the building wave of enthusiasm for the sport. The background is dominated by the well-known green of the soccer pitch along with colourful 'swoosh' marks flying from behind the ball and complex line patterns recalling soccer nets.
