Named after the Yukon River, Canada's triangle-shaped territory conjures images of the gold-rush era, when fortune seekers panned Yukon's waterways for gold. Today, it remains a bastion of northern wilderness and wildlife, often isolated by some of the continent's highest peaks. This coin beautifully recreates a winter scene in the Yukon, which became Canada's second territory in 1898.

Based on a photograph taken by Canadian wilderness photographer Peter Mather, your coin features vibrant colour over the detailed engraved image of nature's most colourful light display in Yukon. Heavy snow lines the edges of McIntyre Creek in Whitehorse, Yukon, where the towering conifers are reflected in the still waters below. On this quiet winter night, the beauty of the northern scenery is heightened by the luminous green and pink hues of the aurora borealis overhead, as it dances across the night sky and lights up the landscape below. Your coin also features the engraved word "CANADA" and the dates "1867-2017" to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
