Canada 5-CENTS (KM66) Hare
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 five cent coin, Mr. Colville says
The rabbit (varying hare) is common, much loved by children, perhaps because of its vulnerability. It survives by alertness and speed, and is symbolically connected to the ideas of fertility, new life and promise -- it is a future, or united, animal.
