Design

Canadian artist Aries Cheung created this delightful design of a rat jumping among the branches of a pine tree. Clusters of pine needles look fan-like as they sweep up the left side of the coin field. On the right, a playful rat dives into the branches with one paw stretched out to its left. The rat's agile body curves along the outer edge of the field and its tail curls inward just above the pine branches to unify the composition. The Chinese character for “rat” is engraved on the rat's flank while a good luck coin motif adorns its back, and auspicious peonies and plum blossoms fill the remainder of its body. “CANADA 2020” and “10 DOLLARS” are engraved above and below the design. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt with “ELIZABETH II D.G. REGINA” engraved along the outer edge of the coin.


Packaging

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