Beautiful color photograph adorns this coin

The reverse, based upon an image taken by Canadian nature photographer Daniel Dagenais, places the viewer in the cockpit of a brilliant blue kayak as it glides along a serene river in Quebec, surrounded by morning fog clinging to majestic mountains. "1867-2017 CANADA" inscribed above. Queen Elizabeth II, as sculpted by Susanna Blunt appears on the obverse, bordered by "ELIZABETH II," "D. G. REGINA," and "10 DOLLARS."
