2014 Canada $200 Interconnection Sea: The Orca Gold (No Tax)

Canada's three natural realms of land, sky, and sea mingle in a landscape of unmatched grandeur. Similarly, its people-First Nations and modern inhabitants alike-though culturally distinct, overlap within this landscape in a unique experience of shared history and nationhood.

This 1/2-ounce coin is certified to be 99.99% pure gold with a diameter of 29 millimetres and a weight of 15.43grams. The reverse design by Canadian artist Andy Everson presents the theme of "Sea". Its central motif is an orca, stylized in the tradition of Everson's K'omoks and Kwakwaka'wakw ancestors. This image is framed by a circle representing the rim of the moon. Surrounding the inner circle is a stylized depiction of gently moving water-the domain of the orca, whose tides and movement lie in thrall to the power of the moon. The reverse includes the word "CANADA", the face value of "200 DOLLARS" and the date "2014". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
