Royal Canadian Mint Features Mark Hobson's Work

Saturday March 31st, 2012 @ 2:34pm

In January 2008 The Royal Canadian Mint launched a new Canadian coin designed by Mark Hobson. This new aureate dollar features a pair of Common Eiders, a duck species frequently seen on the east coast of the country. It was available as a specimen set with six other Canadian coins presented in a maroon coloured case and limited to 40,000 sets.

This is the fourth wildlife design Mark has done for the Royal Canadian Mint. Previous images included Tufted Puffins, Pronghorn Antelope and Muskox.
