Royal Canadian Mint - The 25-cent coin re-creates a preliminary sketch of the iconic caribou design by artist Emanuel Hahn. The Big Dipper asterism appears behind the left-side profile of Rangifer tarandus, while the denomination "25 CENTS" is positioned between the caribou's antlers. Laser engraving on flat mimics the artist's hand-drawn guide lines. The reverse includes the word "CANADA" and an updated date, "2019". The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget.

The $1 coin also features Emanuel Hahn's early take on the Voyageur design that eventually appeared on Canada's silver dollars (1935-1986). Beneath the aurora borealis, a voyageur and an Indigenous guide paddle a fur-laden canoe past wind-swept pines that rise up from a semi-circular island. Laser engraving on flat mimics the artist's hand-drawn guide lines. The reverse includes the word "CANADA", an updated date "2019" and the denomination, "DOLLAR". The obverse features the effigy of King George VI by T. H. Paget.
