The Beaver - The second coin in our popular O Canada series.
Canada's national identity is like our majestic landscape: diverse, storied and sometimes elusive. In the ever-changing tectonics of Canadian culture, identifiers reflect our nation's multicultural nature and its geography, fauna and flora, and social and political institutions. Born of this complex background, Canadian icons are distinct because they carry meaning for all Canadians, regardless of where we live or how we came to be here. And the iconic image of the beaver reaches back to Canada's earliest root.
