Slocan Lake
Slocan Lake is a lake in the Slocan Valley of the West Kootenay region of the Southeastern Interior of British Columbia, Canada. It is drained by the Slocan River, which flows south from the lake's foot at Slocan City through the Slocan Valley to South Slocan, British Columbia, where that river meets the Kootenay River a few miles above its confluence with the Columbia. It is fed by Bonanza Creek, which comes down the pass from Summit Lake, beyond which is the town of Nakusp on Upper Arrow Lake. In addition to Slocan City (officially now a "village", but usually referred to locally by its old name of Slocan City to distinguish it from Slocan Park and South Slocan), other towns and communities on the lake include the twin communities of New Denver and Silverton, midway up the lake's eastern shore, Rosebery slightly north of them at the mouth of Wilson Creek, and Hills at the lake's north end. To the west of the lake is the Valhalla Range (or "the Valhallas"), most of which is enshrined in Valhalla Provincial Park.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Stéphanie Gauvin features a selectively painted depiction of the view from Idaho Peak in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia. Surrounded by the colourful alpine wildflowers, a hiker stands at the edge of the ridge and contemplates the journey. Selective paint over detailed engraving recreate the breathtaking view overlooking the winding Slocan Lake below, with the Valhalla Mountain Range rising up in the background. The coin’s silver surface recreates the bright glow of the fading mid-summer sun, which bathes the landscape in a warm and colourful glow that transforms the scenery into an artist’s dream.
