Canada 10-CENTS (KM67) Mackerel
Canada issued special coins in 1967 to mark 100 years of confederation. All the reverse designs were created by Canadian wildlife artist Alex Colville.
For the ten cent coin, Mr. Colville says
Being the smallest coin, this requires a simple and unambiguous image. I used the mackerel, one of the most beautiful and streamlined fish, common on both coasts. The fish has ancient religious implications; I think of it as symbol of continuity.
