Designed by Canadian Artist Alex Colville
David Alexander Colville [1920-2013] designed all six of Canada’s 1967 Centennial coins: Canada Goose (1 dollar), wolf (50 cents), wildcat (quarter), mackerel (dime), hare (nickel) and rock dove (penny). “A half-century later, the coins he designed are regarded as some of the most beautiful ever minted. To this day, they occasionally appear among your change, worthy of a moment’s reflection and a happy reminder of an exciting year: hand-held sculptures that put art into the pocket of even the poorest.” (Hawthorn, The Year Canadian Lost Their Minds, p. 30)
