It is sure to be treasured by the few collectors who manage to get one for decades to come.
Stunning Liberty Design by John Mercanti
Former US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti created the Liberty design that features on the obverse. He shows the figure using a sword to keep two vipers, which represent evil in the world, at bay. In her left hand, she holds high a torch that is wrapped in laurel, which is symbolic of victory over oppression. Inscriptions on this face read "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) and "LIBERTAS."
Susan Taylor's reverse design shows Pax (Peace), a young woman. She turns her head to the left side of the coin, but her shoulders are open to the holder. On her head is a crown of maple leaves and olive branches, which together symbolize the core Canadian values of peace, order, and good government. "PAX" is inscribed to the left of the effigy, and the date, "2019," is included to the right of it. At the top of this face is the inscription, "A MARI USQUE AD MARI" (From sea to sea).
