First issue in the 3-coin series. A terrific collectible for kids of all ages!

The Royal Canadian Mint Describes the first of three cryptid coins as:

Children of all ages will be captivated by this large coloured coin and its mysterious theme. It’s presented in a full-colour folder that tells the fascinating story of Sasquatch and includes a pull-out map showing where it was last seen—let the intrigue begin!

Coin design:
A surprising aerial perspective of Sasquatch walking among snow covered trees, leaving behind a trail of large footprints in the snow.

Tracking a mysterious creature from Canada’s North.

In Asia, people claim to have seen Yeti, and in the western United States, witnesses describe a very similar Bigfoot—a very fast, very hairy and strong “ape-man” walking on two feet, “As big as a bear standing on its hind legs,” they say. Sasquatch is reputed to stand about 3 m (10 ft) tall and weigh 227 kg (500 lb)—and looking at the huge footprints it leaves behind, believers say the truth can’t be far off. What do you think?
