The iconic Lucky Loonie represents Canada’s united hope for all of our exceptional athletes: best of luck at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games and Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia! This stunning coin features a coloured Canadian Olympic Team logo, nestled alongside a depiction of the Common Loon (Gavia immer) that ripples the still waters of a lake. Differing from the design of the current 1-dollar coin in circulation, it is uniquely posed with its fantastic wings fanned out in a familiar display of dominance, serving as a reminder of the strength of our Olympic team. The layering effects and engraving techniques used on this coin showcase the breathtaking elements of the loon’s plumage, a detail sure to delight! This item makes an excellent addition to any Canadian-themed collection, and is a thoughtful gift idea for any athlete, nature lover, or proud Canadian.
