Canada 1-DOLLAR (KM1166) Moose

This one-year coin was issued in 2011 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Parks Canada, Canada's national park system.

The moose on the coin has a calf standing behind it. While hiking in Killarney Park, my wife and I had a close encounter with a mother moose and its baby. While I was looking for a (non-existent) escape route, the moose decided to leave the path and go around. Lucky for us.

There are lots of other elements on the coin, including a hiker, a beaver, a bird, some fish, and assorted fauna. And a building. Normally, a coin with so many elements looks like it was designed by committee (i.e. like crap). This coin manages to pull it all off.
