Design

The reverse design by Canadian artist Glen Loates features colour over the engraved portrait of a young barren-ground caribou. Barely a few weeks old, the calf is not yet weaned from its mother’s milk as it looks up and turns its head to curiously face the viewer. Selective colour enhances the detailed engraving while recreating the calf’s tan- and white-coloured fur, along with the darker colours of its eyes, nose and hooves. At its feet is a bright mix of pastel colours, which convey the springtime explosion of colourful new growth on the tundra in Canada’s North, where the lichen, purple saxifrage and forbs provide a nutritious meal for the engraved female caribou standing next to her young. Both mother and child will need their strength to make the long trek across the wideopen landscape depicted in the engraved background, where the nursery herd will join other caribou on the coastal plains. Also engraved on the reverse are the word “CANADA”, the face value “20 DOLLARS” and the year “2016”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
