3. Coin Design
I really like the design of this coin. It is very unique and eyecatching. Canadian Mint have some really great coin designs, the only thing that frustrates me a bit about their coins is they they do have a tendency to develop milk spots, which impacts the resale value if it is a collector type coin.
I am not sure if this specific design is susceptible to milk spots, but I know my Canadian Maples coins definitely are.
a. Reverse Design
The reverse of the coin depicts a fearsome Kraken or monster of the sea. The tentacles of the Kraken are wrapped around two ships. It is in the process of crushing the ships.
The design includes an inscription 'Canada' and the coin weight '2oz'.
b. Obverse Design
The obverse of the coin portrays the effigy of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The denomination of the coin inscribed on the coin is '10 DOLLARS'.
