Dog Sledding
A dog sled or dog sleigh is a sled pulled by one or more sled dogs used to travel over ice and through snow. Numerous types of sleds are used, depending on their function. They can be used for dog sled racing. In Greenland the dogs pull in a fan shape in front of the sled, while in other regions the dogs pull side by side in pairs. Dog power has been used for hunting and travel for over a thousand years. As far back as the 10th century BCE these dogs have contributed to human culture. Assembling a dog sled team involves picking leader dogs, point dogs, swing dogs, and wheel dogs. The lead dog is crucial, so mushers take particular care of these dogs. Another important detail is to have powerful wheel dogs to pull the sled out from the snow. Point dogs (optional) are located behind the leader dogs, swing dogs between the point and wheel dogs, and team dogs are all other dogs in between the wheel and swing dogs and are selected for their endurance, strength, and speed as part of the team.

 
Design

The reverse of the coin depicts a wonderful scene of some dogs pulling a sleigh surrounded by some symbols of Canadian folklore. On the bottom of the reverse, the inscription: "CANADA" - the issuing country. The starboard side of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” - the Queen's name, “2019” - the date of issue, “D.G.REGINA” - Dei Gratia Regina and “3 DOLLARS” - the face value.
