2012 Canada $1 Lucky Loonie Fine Silver Coin (TAX Exempt)

In 2012, the Royal Canadian Mint celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Loonie, the iconic Canadian one-dollar coin bearing the image of this great Canadian symbol. Like its namesake, the Loonie has proven resilient, emblematic, and long-lived.

This 7.89 g, 26.5 mm, 99.99% pure silver coin features a reverse image designed by Canadian artist Emily S. Damstra. In a unique take on the original loon design of Canada's 1-dollar circulation coin, here the Common Loon (Gavia immer) is depicted from behind as it spreads its wings in a territorial display, one of the species' most elegant and recognizable poses. The loon, viewed sitting in the rippling lake waters, faces a lake shore densely wooded with the Canadian boreal forest's characteristic mix of evergreen and deciduous trees. This proof finish silver Lucky Loonie also features, to the left of the lakeshore in the upper left-hand segment of the reverse side, a painted Canadian Olympic Team logo, in celebration and support of Canada's athletes as they prepare for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
