Canada Geese gold coin design for Royal Canadian Mint

I’m excited to report that the Royal Canadian Mint just released a new gold collector coin featuring my design of some Canada Geese. See a better image of the coin at the Mint’s website here. I created the design of the reverse only; I did not create the design of Queen Elizabeth on the obverse and I did not do the engraving. This is my first coin design.

    That is beautiful! Here’s hoping you get a percentage of every coin minted. 🙂

    What medium did you use for your original design? Any chance you could post a photo of that?

    Thank you, Rick. I used plain ol’ graphite for the original drawing, with some modifications digitally. If I could post it I would….

    w000t! Beautiful, Emily! Congratulations. Our nephew has begun collecting coins, and since he has met you I’ll be sure to point it out to him when he is looking images of them over.
