Two new Mythical Creatures illustrations on coins from the Royal Canadian Mint.

September 18, 2011

Earlier this summer the Royal Canadian Mint released a collector coin featuring my illustration of the Memphré, a mythical creature said to inhabit Lake Memphremagog (on the border of Quebec and Vermont). Click here to see the coin at the Mint’s website.

The Mint released its latest Mythical Creatures coin this month featuring my illustration of Mishepishu, a creature that haunts the waters of Lake Superior according to Ojibwe legend. Click here to view the coin at the Mint’s website.

    I just saw these today in a coin shop and was really interested. Two mythical creatures I had never heard about!
