2010 Canada $500 Look of the Games 5oz. Olympic Gold Coin (No Tax)

Transformation and fusion are at the heart of the Vancouver 2010 Look of the Games. Inspired by the energy and dynamics of the Host Region and Host Country, the imagery reflects a place where both nature and culture are constantly in a state of change and growth. Water, in all its forms, is everywhere. It nourishes, cleanses and provides beauty to the ever-changing Sea to Sky region and all of Canada - from coast to coast to coast. Canada's towns and cities reflect a similar energy to its dramatic natural environment. In Canada, the world's cultures come together in a fusion of fresh ideas and possibilities.

The inlays are illustrated textures drawn from Canada's natural and urban environments, and its rich cultural diversity. The nature inlays find beauty in organic textures, ranging from sea foam to ice crystals to pebbles and wood grain. Canada's humanity, from architectural textures to street art, is seen in urban inlays and is also featured in these inlays drawn from the fabrics, art and architecture of Canada's many cultures.

The overlays depict the proximity and connection between Canada's nature and humanity - in all their many forms. Drawn from everyday objects and life forms in the Host Region and Host Country, the overlays are combined in unexpected and whimsical ways to illustrate the harmony between unrelated, often contrasting elements. The overlays symbolize the beauty that comes from diversity and balance - ideals at the core of Canadian values.

The inlays used in this design display bubbles, salmon, fern, Gas Town brickwork, technology, rain, lattice, sea foam, firs, clouds and ice, while the overlays display trees, an aboriginal canoe and geese that transform into a kite.
